Are you working from home right now?
maybe you find yourself there half-time, full-time, or no-time.
I know this Season has been hard in oh so many ways….and for so many people.
It has never been more important than now to care for our hearts…and CARE DEEPLY! Our personal soul-care is vital to our well being, both mentally and physically. It is from our OVER-FLOW that we are able to affect those around us…hopefully for their good.
When we are emotionally spent – which, haven’t we all been there a bit too often lately? – there is nothing left to give others. Not our families, not our friends….even our work people suffer at the hands of our personal neglect.
But filling up can be a challenge when we are faced with stress, job loss, money shortages …temper shortages. The negative culture around us can affect us so deeply if we allow it to. So I would like you to do something for me….for you….
Find Beauty in an In-Between Moment
Right now in fact… Stand Up and walk to the closest window…
What do you see?
Now look closer – notice something that you hadn’t before. What does it look like? What color is it? How does it move [or not move]? What surrounds it? Is it affected by its surroundings?
Now craft a little story in your head about this noticing.
Tell it’s Story
It doesn’t have to take long. Imagine you are telling a child about this thing. Everything has a story, even inanimate things. How does it look, feel, think.
Imagine the possibilities.
Taking yourself out of the auto-pilot moments of the day, and into creative story, helps you to find beauty in life. This practice can lift your Spirit, and bring you more in-tune with the present moments that you often can’t see because of busyness, obligation, and world view. As you fill up with these, your over-flow will change the culture around you.
Notice the change. It may be very subtle at first, but as you lift, so will the atmosphere.
Somehow we all need to find a disconnect….in order to reconnect – to what’s important, to the natural world around us…to our very Souls.
Take time today to find beauty in the In-Between Moments…
Make it a habit every hour or so. Stretch. Walk. Look. Breathe. Five minutes is all it takes to totally change your perspective. Over time you will begin to see your Spirit lift, your emotions settle, your mood improve, and your Creative Heart begin to soar!
As you transform, so does the world around you….for it’s good
