This morning I had a wonderful chat with a dear friend via Skype.
(I love technology by the way, so much talk about how it constricts and distracts…technology has expanded my world–literally and figuratively–thank you, Technology!).
I received a few emails from people whom I love dearly.
And, I am preparing to spend a weekend of connection with my children and various friends.
So, I took some time to think about friendships.
I look at my life today and I am surrounded by people who inspire me, simply because they choose to live their truth, and share the adventure through photos and words; what they reflect invites me to continue to live my own truth.
I am surrounded by people who listen. They listen to my body language and my silence as deeply as they do my words. They feel into, and beyond, my words.
I am surrounded by people who understand the reason I practice, move, create, love, and share as I do. They might not always agree, but they support and encourage and celebrate with me.
I am surrounded by people who are full of passion and moxie, who are able to ‘move mountains’ when they wish to, and to rest and refresh after they move them.
I am surrounded by people who enjoy creating–the moment, an experience, or in some artistic way.
I am surrounded by people who love fully, deeply, with awareness and presence.
I am surrounded by people who are so incredibly generous in spirit, and with material possessions; they readily share time, energy, and resources with those in their life and/or global World.
I am surrounded by people who choose to celebrate the moment; to embrace it fully as they cultivate the feel of abundance.
I am surrounded by people who laugh, sing, dance, play, “goof-off”.
My heart fills with Love and Gratitude for these connections.
When you read my story, you can see this experience is quite new for me.
We can tell ourselves that something is impossible, and it remains impossible.
We can tell ourselves that we are conditioned and it is difficult to change, and it will be.
We can step out in faith, trusting that presence to flow is enough as our heart whispers continue to unfold and blossom.
Thank you for your presence, in this space, and in my life!
I believe that each connection is perfectly placed; each reflection inspires, enriches, enlivens; each energetic step is in sync, and resonant with, love, joy, and gratitude.
May I ask, how do you feel about the connections in your life? Have you shared your appreciation?
Much peace and abundant love,
