I couldn’t help sharing this Maya Angelou quote as well:
“We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends, and living our lives.”
– Maya Angelou
We fear the inevitable and worry about things that take up our time and energy. We also can fall into the trap of allowing our focus to shift from our goal of living a meaningful life to one in which we strive for success. Sometimes our ‘busy-ness’ trumps the slow down process that is necessary to allow ourselves quality time to be spent with our loved ones.
We can take joy in the ordinary moments, we can aim to have daily laughter in our lives, we can choose a healthy pace. If we need to heal, we can create a focus around that. Growth can become a cornerstone in our foundation. Movement becomes valued. As does time spent in nature, time spent seeking a grounded feeling, time spent adoring our families and cherishing our friends 🙂
