What in the world have I been doing since our end-of-summer Lake Tahoe Vacation? Well, life – need I say more?
Life got crazy, busy, frantic, and just plain nuts all the way around. I’ve done art projects, traveled for work, harvested the garden, celebrated one daughters birthday, opened a store (more on that later), made commitments, broke commitments, entertained end-of-season parties (my husband is a Coach), landscaped, helped my granparents move (and get settled), and, and, and.
Just when you think one “to do” on the list gets crossed off, another one pops up. I’m pretty sure you’re all nodding your head up and down right now. But here’s what I’ve been trying to do most of all. BE PEACE FULL.
This means every task, to do, or chore gets done in the name of peace, for peace, or with peace. Trying to navigate the road peacefully so that the tasks themselves don’t overthrow the mind and spin me out of control with overwhelm. Sometimes that means disconnecting. Disconnecting from the internet and submerging myself in the present moment where life is meant to be lived, even the hard parts.
The only way I know how to invite peace into my my being is to BREATHE DEEP. Scientifically, I know how it works. Mentally, it doesn’t even matter. What matters most is that. it. does. Try it and see for yourself how amazing a full deep breath can make you feel before each and every task. It just might help you be a little Peace Full.
Enjoy the breath of life!
PS – Both of those recycled fence posts were part of the art projects that I had been working on. I put them both in said store above, meant to take pictures of the whole vignette to show you, but when I went back to snap a few, both had sold! Back to the studio.
