Stop and Smell the Roses
Do you feel present in your life? (For some that statement doesn't even make sense) What I mean is, do you feel like you are really mentally and physically in the same place at the same time? Or when you are with the kids, are you thinking about work? And when you are at work are you day dreaming about something else? And when you are surrounded by friends at a party, is your mind wandering to your laundry list of to dos.
Presence is the state of being somewhere - both physically and mentally - enjoying the life you are intentionally creating. With today's erratically busy lifestyles, we often miss the beauty that is right around us. How can we discover the beauty of the life that is RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR NOSES, while still working towards an even more fulfilled future. Living for today AND living for tomorrow.
I am grateful to have found a program that has provided me tools and a safe space to explore myself and my needs in ways that have helped me grow and rediscover who I Am! I have become more aware of who I Am as a person, wife, sister, friend and co-worker. My interactions with people have changed for the good, and I am more intentional with my words and actions. I find myself stopping to smell the flowers, enjoy the butterflies and watching more sunsets - appreciating the wonderful things all around me. I have also learned that it is ok to be me, love me, and root for me! I can do all of this and still have time and room to give my best self to others. Can’t wait to see what round 2 offers!
