Light slipping through the curtains.
The familiar undercurrent of other lives.
The vast, unfolding of time.
It’s morning. Morning. Morningtime.
Greeting the day. Entering the day.
• I choose how I wish to be.
• I choose how I wish to feel.
• I choose how I wish to live.
thank you god for most this amazing day… (e.e. cummings)
Waking up this morning I smile, twenty-four brand new hours are before me, I vow to live fully in each moment and look at all beings with eyes of compassion. (Thich Nhat Hanh)
I surrender the day now beginning. May I live in love. May I be in love… (Marianne Williamson and me)
Body stretches and releases.
Hands land lightly. On heart. On belly.
I am here.
• In this body.
• In this bed.
• In this life.
In this morningtime.
Like Spring, morning is a time to begin again.
• With a new day.
• With a new chance.
• With a new perspective.
How will I live into this possibility?
• With habit?
• With rushing?
• With openness?
• With love?
With awareness. With curiosity. With compassion.
I can bring these to any day, no matter how full.
• A being that is awake.
• A mind that it interested and open.
• A heart that is gentle and soft.
Morningtime = Springtime
A chance to begin fresh.
A chance to begin clean.
A chance to begin simple.
A chance to return to what is most true.
Practicing and awakening together.
How can you consciously craft your morningtime to welcome
the possibility of a brand new and fresh day of living?
I’d love to support you in this with my 3-hour The Way of the Happy Woman®: Spring Yoga, Meditation & Life Balance Mini-Retreat on April 26th and/or with my Women’s Holistic Health & Wellness Coaching.
