Nature often holds up a mirror so we can see more clearly the ongoing processes of growth, renewal, and transformation in our lives. -unknown
This little boy is discovering the world around him,
becoming an explorer all his own.
Touching nature with his hands,
he sees great beauty in the simple things.
He goes with the flow
and helps me see the world with fresh, new eyes.
He reminds me that being silly...
is a great joy.
With a new baby boy on the way,
I am full of complete gratitude for the gift of motherhood.
I know I'm going down a new path
and I don't know where it will lead.
Inviting a new angel into our family
is reminding me what's most important in life.
Our spirits live on...forever.
Reconnecting to nature reminds me to listen to my heart, to return to a simpler way of being, and to let go of more, so that I can fully embrace the present moment.
As I listen more deeply to my natural rhythm and energy, I've decided that rather than launching my Summer Camp e-course in August, I'm turning my attention to slowing down. I know that this stage of my life,
being a mother to young children, is so fleeting. I'm choosing to enjoy a lazy, breezy, relaxed kind of summer, enjoying time with my son, and I want to be restored and ready for this next little soul to enter the world.
So I'm choosing to work a little less and play a little more - to slow down and let go.
As we continue to discover the world together, let us all embrace our unique brilliance and live from a place that vibrates love, complete wonder and authenticity! Will you choose to LIVE NOW, too?
Inside Out: A Creative Adventure of Self-Discovery is the last e-course I'll be offering before I'm on maternity leave this fall. It starts in one week! In honor of my path and in honor of your path, I'd like to share one last give-away. Leave a comment by Wednesday morning, June 16th, to the following question:
Your Personal Reflection: What is one step you are taking TODAY to live a more authentic life?
