It’s been almost a month since my book was released and I am still overwhelmed with all the feedback I get from friends and strangers across the globe. Thank you!
I accepted a few speaking engagements to read from the book and put it into practice together. As I prepare for these events I often turn to my own words to figure out which texts to read and experiment with. And I noticed something interesting happening: these words have grown on me.
In a time when I am so caught up in busy schedules and often lose sight of all the beauty around me – Change your perspective.
In slow weeks when I feel all left alone – Remember that you are not (never!) forgotten.
On darker days when I’m so dissatisfied with my life and think that everyone is happier and better off – Don’t focus on everything you DON’T have but celebrate the fullness of life you DO have.
The truth is right here, in front of my eyes, but busyness, stress, fears, worries – just life – try so often to make me blind.
So I come back to these words.
Mull them over.
Wrestle with their true meaning.
Put them away.
Come back again.
Until they finally find some roots inside of me.
Until I am ready to accept this new day, this new challenge, this life of mine.
Writing for Five Minute Friday today.
