Take a few moments to check in with yourself. How are you feeling today?
Throughout the day, spend time searching for external symbols that match your mood. If you are resilient, a willow bending in the wind may trigger you. If you are overworked, an ant carrying a heavy load may speak to you. A cloud shaped like in rabbit might connect with your feelings of possibility or energy. What we feel inside creates an impact on the world around us. Just the same, the world you find yourself in can alter how you feel inside. For one moment, find the connection between inside and out.
I witnessed a Canadian military bus today. It reminded me of how strong I can be, waiting for my love when he was overseas in a war zone. It also reminded me of inspiration. Those men and women getting ready to sacrifice all or part of their life to build toward more peaceful resolution, they are looking forward to their duties, as I look forward to my own. I am hopeful that I am part of something positive and rewarding. But the only way I can fight in the battle is if I am taking care of myself first - so many analogies in one image!!
I would love to hear your stories of connection....
