Recently, one of my coaching clients mentioned it was hard for her to keep her focus on what’s important to her. How often does that happen for all of us?
Especially at this time of year, it can be easy to slip into a whirlwind of activity or focusing on what’s missing.
If you’ve taken a moment to read this, take another moment to check in with yourself, become present to this holy moment and notice what opens your heart to joy. Allow yourself to be present with that in this moment.
As I was writing this, I realized I wanted to run outside and photograph the beauty of this shortest day of the year. The clouds and the mountains and the snow – opening my heart to joy . . .
And this moment.
And this moment. What opens your heart to joy now in this moment?
Hmmmm, perhaps a wonderful way to live a life . . .
