The business of life and thoughts guide me far away from the peace, that point of balance hidden deep inside my mind. I’ll spend a few minutes today in my garden, solitude moment. I’ll bring my journal and a cup of tea with me and try to find the lost balance.
Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.Buddha
Have a great Thursday!
Sharing with Nurturing Thursday.
We all got in the car this week. We drove to the lake. Spaciousness was the feeling when we got there. Breathe in, breathe out. The blue immensity filled my soul with calm and joy. It was a priceless ride for all the beautiful moments spent in there 💙
Wishing you a lovely weekend!
Today’s the theme is Fresh, well, so many things fresh things around me this morning:
The fresh flowers I’ve on my kitchen counter, fresh eggs, from the farm market, that I scrambled for my husband, fresh laundry waiting to be ironed, a new book on my coffee table …, but today I want to show the freshness of a habit, my journaling practice. I hope I have captured it below:
Let us live simply in the freshness of the present moment, in the clarity of pure awakened mind.
The freshness of a new morning
Coffee fragance diffusing through the kitchen
Blank pages waiting
Waiting for words
To surrender to the moment
Have a lovely and fresh Sunday!
listening to the wind, feeling it touching my skin and caressing my hair as i walk focusing on being present. isn’t’ it a wonderful mindfulness exercise?
have a great friday!
leaves slowly falling down
dancing with the fresh breeze
taking their time to let go
teaching us that it’s ok
there is time for everything
and no need to hold to
what doesn’t serve us anymore
they abruptly come
stealing a space in the mind
a space that wasn’t empty at all
but they are ruthless
they take us down without asking permission
isn’t worth to try controlling them
they become stronger with each block
the best is to let them come and go
we aren’t our thoughts
“The beauty of life is in small details, not in big events.”
Hope your day is going well. Stop few minutes and pay attention to the detail of the things around you. It can be the prettiness of the tiny petals inside hibiscus flower if you are in a garden. It can be a small crack in your cup of coffee if you are in the office. It can be the dripping of water from the tap if you are in the kitchen, it can be … so many things that we don’t pay attention in the hurry of getting ‘big’ things done.
Don’t forget: Stop; Breathe; Listen
Sharing with Nurturing Thursday and
Cee’s Flower of the day
behind those windows
peace and tranquility
just what i need
right now and forever
a room of solitude
but to reach it
the mind needs to rip apart
all thorns and fences
focus on the roses
hello my dear friends from all over the world. we have a lovely sunshine morning here in my part of the world, and the news is that we will have a white christmas.
i make a vison board for every month (of course, if you follow me for long you know it), this is my december one that I made yesterday. november wasn’t an easy month for me, lots of up and downs, and i almost lost my true-self a long the way. i’m in a process of recovering mind and body. somethings are clear now in spite of all the darkness that had laid on me. more than ever i’m grateful for each moment, for being here and now.
few things for december:
- practice gratitude daily
- enjoy the beauty of the holidays
- cook/bake lots of good stuff and savor each bite of them
- keep (or better, rescue) my focus on simplicity and minimalism
- and the most important of all: enjoy my family and enjoy myself
wishing a wonderful december to you.
hugs and love,
