If your life is like mine, you can feel as If you are being pulled in a hundred directions at any given moment. Regardless of how I say “This is my agenda for the day…..” it appears as if calls, Zoom requests, emails needing responses, friends wanting to connect, and simply life such as dirty dishes and pets needing care, somehow can all make an appearance.

For me, the gift of morning meditation, the time I take before starting my day to remember who I am, to sit with Spirit and remember that no matter what the day entails, this day is a reflection of my spiritual journey. It is one that sits apart from all the demands, all the requests, all the things I would love to support. This one special day of my life is also just another day.

This day is simply the open canvas in which I can write my legacy. It is that period of time in which I either become more connected to the soul that is within me or I become lost in the demands and expectations of the outer world.

It’s a choice; it is always a choice. In illusion, I believe that if I don’t stay on top of everything the world will fall apart, all the things I value will go into crisis, and I will never be able to catch up. In my truth, I am aware that everything is in divine order. Life happens for me not to me.

The newsletter is getting done; I will volunteer for that amazing organization on Long Island; I will see my friend, even if only on Zoom. I will bring in the recycling and garbage bins; I will see my client, have that meeting, and go to that networking event tonight. (Zoom to the rescue still…) Life will go on and through it all, as needed, I will lean back, breathe, and remember in that blissful moment of stillness, yet again, I am blessed, and I am a child of God. All is well.

I wish for you a blessed, peace-filled week in which you remember frequently, that you are blessed, and you are a child of God walking this amazing adventure called life.
