I’ve enjoyed June so much. More than ever before, it feels. I just love every dulcet summer evening breeze of air, every unexpected opportunity to venture out for a long walk and every free moment now that work has once again, summer time thing, slowed down a bit.
I’ve used the time to connect with others, and myself, too. I’ve sought zen moments and longed for mindfulness meditation. I’ve practiced being here and now. Just enjoying the present time without rushing anywhere else forward in thoughts.
Truly appreciating what you have here, now and today takes practice. Of course things could be better, and of course we should strive for better results from ourselves, yet at the same time it is so liberating when you really learn how not to long for anything other than now. Accepting that life goes as it does, and that my job is to adapt to it.
Life becomes an exciting journey when you start living it with a thankful servant’s heart. When you wake up in the morning and think “my input is important so what can I do today to make a difference?” I have my list of things to pray and work on this summer. Do you have one, too?
