Are you ready?


Happy Wednesday, perpetual transitioners!

Do you ever feel like you’re in a state of constant transition? That you’re on the way to something and never quite there yet?

Happy new month! Happy May to you all!

I love the fresh feeling of a new month. It’s like a mini new year!

We start to focus on positive thoughts and perceptions and, for a while, we let go of our fearful and anxious brain pattern. In fact, every action we engage in can become a daily meditation, a slowing-down and an appreciation of life. It seems so simple, in some ways, that it’s almost embarrassing to study it.

We need only remember when we were children who gazed at the sky and the drifting clouds. There was no notion of time nor any guilt for ‘wasting’ it. Time and guilt are concepts we learn about much later in life.”
