Fall is upon us, people. I let the dogs out this morning and stood outside feeling the very cool crisp air, and it smelled gooood out, fresh. This weekend is supposed to be in the 60's and that sounds wonderful to me. I am not ready for the cold air, but this, this feels nice. We have a busy Fall with a lot of really fun things going on. But I am just taking one fun thing on at a time and trying my best to fully be present. Any day now we will be blessed with another nephew!
Yesterday I was feeling pretty stressed with work for a number of different reasons and I even got a head ache because of the worry. It didn't last very long and soon that energy was turned into gratitude and I gave myself the opportunity to let the rest of that stress go. I continue to find solace in the Four Agreements: don't make assumptions, don't take anything personally, be impeccable with your word and always do your best. I still have to remind myself about the first two, but when you fully move through them you waste less energy, and my word is improving. If I want authentic and genuine relationships in my life then I have to be that way outwardly as well, and I am appreciating that much more. And finally, yesterday when my head was overwhelmed and all I wanted to do was sleep on a hammock, I realized I was doing the best I could at that moment. Today I will do better because I feel better.
Off to enjoy a nice lunch with the family out on the town. Enjoy your weekend!
