Surrender to the Moment

“A ship in harbor is safe — but that is not what ships are built for.”

— John A. Shedd

Hope this first month of the New Year is going well for everyone.

I like the quote above as it indicates that it may be more comfortable staying put, and not venturing into the unknown but that’s not allowing ourselves to set sail into new adventures when our spirit is calling us to do so.

Over the past several months, we have been involved in selling our house as we felt called to reduce, and loosen from our home base, our ‘dock’ so to speak. This choice was made with good intentions, plans, and goals; however, there have been some unexpected twists and turns along the way which has made the process a challenging one.

Much like a stormy night at sea, we are riding the waves, as we are still in the midst of our moving journey. Though we are moving only a short distance away, it is requiring some letting go, and surrendering,

However, we know that this too shall pass and smoother sailing is ahead. We shall sea where this new period in our life takes us.

One way or the other, an adventure awaits.

When was the last time you ventured out of your comfort zone, and how was the ride?

Action Step:

Meditate on these encouraging words.

See A Mindfulness Life Center on TV

It is a great pleasure to be a part of A Mindfulness Life Center, and see it televised this week on a local lifestyle show entitled Sonoran Living Live.

I was happy to be there for the filming of it, and to be there regularly to coach and facilitate personal growth workshop series on a regular basis.

It still amazes me how the center evolved from an idea that was shared with us at dinner one night, to becoming a reality one step at a time.

The current owner had a vision of a calming place for the community, and sought out collective sharing of ideas for its implementation, and offerings.

Now even a year old yet, the centers reach is expanding rapidly, along with its peaceful effects.
