Good Morning!


Have you ever noticed that often the littlest things in life bring you the greatest pleasure?


The other day I wrote in my journal how excited I was about a new purple pen that I found at Office Max. I wrote how, in every way, my pen was perfect: the purple ink, the way it felt in my hand, and even the attractive design.


I know, you probably think how childish can someone be to derive so much pleasure from a silly purple pen? But I say, why not? The fact that you stop to take a moment to notice is what really matters. Whether it’s a sandy beach in Mexico or a delicious mouthful of your favorite food, being in the moment and noticing what delights you only proves how blessed you are with a feeling of joy and appreciation.


Living your life at the speed of sound doesn’t leave you with much opportunity to notice the little (and big) things that bring you joy. But slowing down, and taking a moment to look at your life from a new perspective, might just change the way you live and experience the reality of your life.


I dare you to take a deep breath and look around you. Notice that when you really look at the details of your surroundings, you’ll see things that you never noticed before. Stop to appreciate the vividness of colors around you, like your houseplants, and notice the miraculous processes that keep those plants alive; and take a moment to discover the many comforts in your room (like the cozy chair you sit in or the warmth from a fireplace) as if for the first time.


What are you noticing as you do this? Can you sense a shift in your perspective and perhaps a softening in your body and your presence in the room? What would happen if you were able to bring your new sense of appreciation into the rest of your day, your week, your life?


I challenge you to slow down this week and “smell the roses.” Take a moment each and every day to stop, breathe, and soften your focus. Let your breath and your soul loosen the tense fibers of your being, creating more space in your body and mind, bringing with it a sense of peace, color, and joy.


Be gentle with yourself. It takes time and practice shifting from living in overdrive to cruise control. A little dose of humor can help and so does asking Spirit to guide you. Remember, the natural essence of your soul is one of peace and calm. The ability to live from a place of tranquility is not about learning something new, but simply remembering who you really are. And by the way, who you really are is amazing!


Wishing you a week of simple pleasure and lots of joy,
