It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.
I remember a week after Beckett was born, sitting at home with the 3 of us... and me bawling my eyes out because he was turning a week old 😭 he already seemed so big compared to when he was born, and I cried to Kenneth about how I never wanted him to grow up.
Kenneth laughed, realizing how illogical it was to think he was so grown up, but my postpartum hormones and emotions were clouding all sense of reality and I really thought my baby was so grown in one week.
I know so often we look forward to the next stage, the next milestone, the next accomplishment... but all I want is to experience every moment with this boy 💙 I’m guilty myself of saying “I can’t wait for this phase to be over” when he’s inconsolably crying... but I have to remind myself that these days are numbered. He’s already been here 6 weeks as of today, and it really does seem like we were just in the hospital falling in love with him for the first time.
It’s bittersweet seeing Beckett grow- so amazing to watch him learn and experience new things but also so sad knowing he will never be this little again.
Conscious breathing . Do you do it enough? It’s such a basic that I feel like when we hear that as advice we write it off as “oh yeah, I know that” • • •
BUT R U PRACTICING IT THO • • •
Being more conscious and aligned with each move I make has enabled me to make some big decisions ... and create content that I live in the moment just because it feels right , vs. the thought process of some strange “end goal”. • • •
So tonight grab a stone, hold it , breathe and remember that this present moment is everything 🌱🌊
Spring is right around the corner, and I’m eagerly anticipating its arrival. The sun sets later and warmer weather means we can be outside longer without dying from exposure. Not that it has been cold, but for me... it’s cold enough. Since it was chilly today, I finally got around to writing a blog post. It’s the first of many, so I hope you click the link in the bio and show my post some love. 🥰
Next up on my tbr is Recipe For A Perfect Wife by @karmakbrown I have no doubt im going to love it because I've loved everything else I've read by her. I think my favorite so far has been In This Moment, I've read Come Away With Me also but had to give up searching for it.
Also if you are in the KW area the @kitchenerlibrary is having an evening with Karma Brown as part of their #85queen series, and all the events have been amazing so far. Ticket reservations for this free event become available tomorrow
I have a lot going on in my life at the moment, much of it isn't great and I have the bad habit of letting overwhelm and catastrophic thinking take over. That's all it is, a habit. I've allowed myself to think this way for so long that my mind goes back there far too easily. The solution is to be present in the moment. This was my view as I embarked on my morning walk. I allowed myself to really look at it, enjoy it and feel it's beauty. Sure the other stuff is still here but letting it go and enjoying this beautiful sunrise, even for a short time, gave me the opportunity to breathe and escape the overwhelm.
What can you do right in this moment to let go of the crap thats banging around in your head? #byebyeoverwhelm#inthismoment#bepresent#letitgo#justforawhile#beautifulsunrise#itsnotallbad#lifeisgood
We always look for the antagonist. Have you noticed how we always look for someone to blame? There's always a REASON for us to behave a certain way. There's always an excuse. There's always a LACK OF RESPONSIBILITY.
I cought myself falling into the same old trap today. I was blaming my frustrations on an external event, on another person's action. But wait, there is a moment. The moment between receiving and giving back. In this moment you can CHOOSE to be responsible for YOUR actions, words, and thoughts. And if you miss that moment, it's OK. All you have is NOW.
Be better RIGHT NOW.
