Wouldn't it be wild if we celebrated presence instead of 5 and 10 year plans? That we craved meditation more than mochas? The joy of this long weekend, aside from the huge gratitude of the veterans and service people committed to our great country, is the extra day. Another day with my beloveds, having fun watching movies, playing in the park and having a BBQ style dinner while laughing and crying to Big Hero 6. Following an UBER POWERFUL SUPER NEW MOON I am filled with inspiration, desire and focus on what really matters. It's breathing longer and more slowly. It's being more anchored in the now, while we shoot for the stars of the future. And above all else it's my wonderful family. It's about loving and respecting myself enough to not take abuse and disrespect from others, environments and paths.
As I talked into the early hours of this morning with my hubby, laughing, understanding and the odd little tear shed too (it's been an intense couple years for me) I became very clear on what really mattered, what I wanted and what makes me happy. And I mean REALLY HAPPY. Happy with the wind in your sails and the breath of life in your lungs kind of happy.
It's not in the things, the titles, the accomplishments - although all these things are awesome - it's about experiences, moments and the people you love beyond life. So put down your lists, drop the business of busy-ness and loving hug all you hold dear a little longer and closer. That is what really matters.
