Here Now…Writing to a Mentor
Once I get my legs under me, feel the terrain crunch under my feet and take in a breath of readiness, I begin to catch the beauty of the vibrant yellow flowers that change shape and size as I move down the trail. I notice the multi-colored green rolling hills in the background with massive rocks scattered amongst them like stepping stones for giants. From the mini white trumpet shaped flowers that tuck in just far enough off the trail that would otherwise be missed without a clear presence, to the fuzzy caterpillar that works its way across the trail in front of me.
And then I reach the point of ‘turnaround’ ~ in which I travel back on the same trail only to experience and be blessed by an entirely different view and perspective… Ever-changing, ever appreciating.
To forever be in gratitude….
Today I hold gratitude for the gift of a beautiful soul, teacher, friend and ally, who gently assists me in coming back to and remaining in the present moment… who encourages me to keep showing up for myself and trust in my self-love and inner guidance… that gift which is you, a divine mentor.
I appreciate you, Thank you!
Big love. ♥
On a girls night out amongst a couple friends whom I feel very close and comfortable with, ones I can be open-hearted and vulnerable with… you know, your ‘circle of trust’ tribe…. I decided to share some strong emotions I was juggling.
How aware and truly present are we in our conversations? I mean really!!… Are you aware? We talk to each other throughout our entire day, and conversation is our main means in connecting with others, and yet how truly present are we in our communication?
Have you ever stood in front of someone as your best self, giving it your all to seek to understand, to be curious, to show grace and unconditional love?
