40 | february: a playlist for meditation mondays

2 Feb 2015

happy monday, lovely people – and happy february 2nd! january has been a blur and it seems to have taken forever all at the same time. and here we are, at the beginning of a new month. hopefully you are feeling empowered + inspired. i know i certainly am. so much, so fast, so crazy. that’s how i feel right now – but in the best possible way actually. like i’m about to burst with excitement, creativity, and possibility. and yet, there is something that is telling me to slow it down. don’t get me wrong, i am not saying that i want to be quiet + still. no, i want to be active + in motion. what i mean with slowing down is intentional, thoughtful, aware. so, while it’s full speed ahead, i want to make sure that my head is on straight. that i’m thinking + feeling. doing + being. and not rushing into anything… that’s the key.

i know that the changes that are occurring in my life are all happening at lightning fast speed, and with such excitement + craziness. i just want to be smart in all of the decisions i make, in the opportunities i take, and in the collaborations i begin. so far, everything feels fan-freaking-tastic. and i feel that this month will only deepen and widen what the universe is opening up to me. so, instead of just being completely spontaneous (never fear, i’m still spontaneous!), i am taking it all in at the same time. i am letting this month be the one where i dig really deep into the changes i make and the dreams that i hope to fulfill. for some reason, the timing (for what, i have no idea) just feels right.

in the meantime, i’m also gonna focus on… l o v e. it is february, you know. and while i am no huge fan of valentine’s day, i do cherish a month where i think just a little bit more about love. with that said, i want to share with y’all my february playlist, which i called “come fly with me”, after the swooning frank sinatra tune. it’s a song all about exotic love – and everything about my life feel exotic right now. and as for being in love, well i am most definitely that! lina and i are extremely excited about enjoying the beginning of a new chapter of our story together. so, the playlist is a compilations of love songs… but not your regular, ordinary love songs… honoring the love + excitement of sharing life with my soulmate.
