be in the wild

i wonder where i really want to be.

i went to yoga in the middle of the day today. i could not shut off my brain. i tried really hard, but there are soooo many things swirling around in my head. things i’m stressed about, excited about, worried about… you know. life stuff. i kept going back to my mantra, but i always flew away again into my thoughts. though, there was one one moment of calm peace in my brain. a thought from above came to me… “be here. right now.” and i knew that, even though i couldn’t settle my brain for the entire yoga class, i knew that the little moments of peace were worth something. i knew they were reminders of how i am to live my life every moment of every day. not wishing them away, but living in the middle of them. looking around to see the beauty and hear the gentle whispers of hope.

it has been a gorgeous fall day today, so I snapped some pics on my way to & from yoga. but i couldn’t spend much time outside. today has been a working day from home. still, the message from my yoga class stayed with me all afternoon as i sat at my desk, while the sun was shining so beautifully outside. i remembered the importance of the present moment, of appreciating exactly where i was, for in the present moment there were plenty of gifts to be found.

Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more. ~ Mother Teresa

peace & love to you all.

    Beautiful! It’s so hard sometimes to just be present but we just have to keep trying. Or rather, letting it go, and just being 🙂
