(come paint your own mantra with me
is turning out to be a great word for the year. Really good
While I’m standing in a long line at the grocery store – a situation that would normally trigger my impatient self – I’m finding myself creating a new story in my head. One from I don’t have time to waste to I’m trusting in the abundance of time – that there is plenty of it, that its pace is sacred, that my beliefs around time are impacting my own ability to see the world through a lens of peace vs a lens of angst. I’m conscious of this new story in the mornings when I’m feeling rushed to get the day started. When I’m in traffic, when I’m in the middle of a lonnngg conversation. When I’m wanting my three year old to move quicker. When I’m in a dreaded meeting. Trust, trust trust. It’s helping me create a whole new way of being in the world. Love it.
I began thinking about all the ways I’m learning to trust in the divinity of everything. Not just time. But getting dressed in the mornings. Our nighttime routine with True. Creativity. And especially our thoughts – how our thoughts themselves are expression of our sacred selves. The choices and urges we have to follow our instincts – divinity. The way we tell stories – divine. The way we grieve and forgive and love – divine. The way we creatively express ourselves through writing, painting, decorating, crafting – divine. And when we don’t choose to be true to who we are, we are in some real way betraying our own divinity/sacred journey that awaits.
Big stuff, friends. I can’t tell you the enormity of peace that I have felt these last many months as this comes into focus for me. Life, and all of it’s layers and bits and pieces and story lines and nuances and choices are making so much more sense in a world where trust and courage are at the center.
So here’s to trusting our divinity. We are all such sacred light beings, and everything we do/create/dream/witness/experience matters in more ways than we can even know.
I believe this with my whole heart.
