I spent three days this week at a retreat run by a very successful business coach I know. The first evening I taught a class and led a group meditation. The rest of the time I was part of the group, visioning and planning for the new year. As wonderful as it was, my head hasn’t stopped spinning since I left.
As I lay with Ada tonight, listening to her breathing deepen and slow, I caught myself in a thought loop that wasn’t particularly helpful.
I softened. I dropped into my heart.
In the space of two breaths, life felt better, easier, more relaxed.
Sometimes it really is that simple. One foot in front of the other. Breathing. Trusting. Softening. Watching for the play of light and shadow. Staying open to moments of joy.
