Big Toe in the Water



In this busy holiday season full of activities, I invite you to Pause and Notice.  This is an ideal time to use all your senses to make lasting and meaningful memories with loved ones. And it is an opportunity to “Let Go.”

According to the Mayo Clinic:

“Letting go of grudges and bitterness can make way for improved health and peace of mind. Forgiveness can lead to:

  • Healthier relationships
  • Improved mental health
  • Less anxiety, stress and hostility
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Fewer symptoms of depression
  • A stronger immune system
  • Improved heart health
  • Improved self-esteem”

Mindfulness is the practice of bringing your attention to present moment experiences. It is actively paying attention to your thoughts, body sensations and mood in a non-judgmental way.

Mindfulness is not about changing who we are; instead it is about understanding who we are and accepting ourselves with compassion. This then leads to a life that is richer in the knowing.

And, remember that every morning offers the opportunity for a new fresh start. January 1st is not a magical day, it is yet another wonderful opportunity to begin anew.

May peace rest in your heart today and every day.
