Caution: Free Inspiration

In Uncategorized on October 28, 2011 at 3:42 pm

 

5 fabulous free tips when in need of some inspiration:

*Take a long, deep breath and hold it in for 5 seconds before slowly releasing it….

*Stare at a small animal or insect for a few minutes and discover human life in its purest form.

*Watch carefully as a droplet of water makes its’ way down your window ceil or glass of water- reminding us how truly effortless life can be.

*Stretch and expand your body- releasing all of the built up toxins hiding behind tight muscles and rusty ligaments.

*Give yourself a little chuckle and smile as you ask yourself, “What miracles are going to happen to me today?”

I Turn to You…

In Uncategorized on October 4, 2011 at 2:45 pm

Today has been one of those days- blah, blue, blum.

I wish I could blame it on the rain outside, or the cold I captured over the weekend, or even the fact that I miss my family & close friends terribly, but I know what the real root of this blah, blue, blum day is… Me.

I have overwhelmed myself with so much pressure in the past few weeks that each time I try to come up for air, a new wave comes crashing in over my head. I am not by any means drowning- I’ve simply found myself in uncharted waters.

While I was at a meeting last night, someone painted an image that I can’t seem to get out of my mind. They referred to their life as a duck who sits peacefully on the surface of still waters, everyone gawking at the mystery of how any living thing can look so beautiful and content, but what no one ever see’s is the duck pedaling frantically below the surface, struggling to stay afloat.

This image reminded me of all of the people I meet and see who “appear” to have it all together on the surface, but in reality, are pedaling their lives away below. Which leads me to wonder,

“Do we ever reach a point in our lives where we can stop struggling, or fighting to stay above water?”

I am in love with the idea of always striving to become better, but there are always those days (like today), where I just don’t want to pedal or pant anymore; I just want to be.

It is here where I find myself struggling to find the medium between motivation and contentment. Do I extend myself a little bit further, or sit passively in the moment?

So as opposed to my usual spin of inspiration in my writings, I am looking out to you to keep this lil duckling afloat…and hopefully, to turn this blah, blue, blum day into a fleeting flock of fabulous miracles…

It is to you I turn…
