Checking in on Week 20‘s task of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You!
The task was to take 5 photos of moments in your life you may have missed if you hadn’t been given this assignment.
How’d that go? Did you take some photos? Do share, if you did. If not, you still can!
How does this make you Lighter and More Loving?
Capturing, noticing, being completely aware of a moment in your life will make you more present and grateful.
When you take time to notice YOUR LIFE MOMENTS, especially the smallest of them, you are IN THE NOW. Being in the NOW brings peace. Your mind is not in the land of yesterday or tomorrow, but right NOW.
It takes lots of practice to be in the NOW. As they say in my yoga classes, “your monkey mind likes to be any place but here…NOW”.
Let’s take this “NOW MOMENTS OF YOUR LIFE” one step further…
I’ve seen this quote for years:
and this one…
What are your thoughts on what that means?
To me it is about all those MOMENTS and not the awards, titles, achievements, etc.
AND it is about HOW ARE YOU BEING ON THAT JOURNEY!
How are you being with your moments?
The moments of…
- hurts, disappointments, heartaches,
- joys and delights.
What about specific things on life’s journey…
- training a puppy
- loving your spouse
- child rearing
- purchasing a house; selling a house
- paying your bills
- being a friend
- mowing the lawn
- grocery shopping
- meeting new people
- mopping the floor
- changing a light bulb
And on and on!!!
I’ve had many “successful destination” moments, so to speak, yet wasn’t always happy with how I was BEING on the way there.
When I started practicing BEING IN THE NOW….and not fearing or fretting….so many everyday moments in life felt like “successes” because I liked how I was BEING in them.
How do you want to BE in the MOMENTS of your JOURNEY?
Cheering You on to a Whole MOMENT JOURNEYING Heart,
