So what's our problem when more often than not, we get up and just seem to hover over the surface of our days, and barely dwell in them at all? There are some that believe it is just an ordinary day or normal. As multitasking has become the accepted method of day-to-day living experience, preoccupied with taking care of everyone else, the children, our spouse or signifacant other, our house, our boss or coworkers, caregiving for an parent or relative, the phone calls and emails and social networking...on and on anmd we float along the surface with increasing anxiety and stress. Is it any wonder that sometimes something important winds up falling through the crevices and we react as if in shock, in denial that we did take care of it? That's the difference between taking care of things in our heads, actually pre-occupied with the normal...the ordinary....nightmare of daily life where we sprint from one chore on the list, one after another after another....moaning and groaning all the way because we haven't made time for OURSELVES. Let us breathe here. Inhale. Exhale. Take a moment of me time. Let us take time to renew and rediscover the extra-ordinary in the ordinary. Those extra-ordinary moments are hidden in the normalcy of the every day, it just takes a shift in perspective to become aware of the treasures and blessings that are there to savor and experience --- to notice.
Perhaps it is rediscovering what sustains you? What nourishes, uplifts and inspires you? What is the movement in your life ---your thoughts, your feelings about your thoughts, and your spirit? Is it time to rekindle your inner strength, focus and experience some peace?
