What's Yours Will Find You
I had coffee this morning with two of my closest girlfriends and we all showed up pretty exhausted. Allergies, unruly children and puppies and, well, just life.
I said to them “Do you think our lives will become simpler? Can they?”
I don’t believe it’s a false idea. But I do believe simplicity is a choice and it requires effort. When I think about what makes my life feel simple and nourishing, it’s these things -
meditation and prayer and breath
paying attention to the moment I’m actually in, no matter what
knowing what’s a yes for me and what isn’t
less time on a screen and more in a notebook or nothing at all
eating things that are green and drinking lots of water
sunshine and laying in the grass
forgiving myself and others a bit faster
And then there’s the words above - what’s yours will find you.
When I repeat those words back to myself, my entire being takes a big sigh of relief. It helps me loosen my grip on life, breathe a bit deeper and (try) to trust life as it unfolds.
What feels simple and true to you?
What would it take to live from that space this week?
