Slowing It Down
Beautiful start to a beautiful day.
I attended a Zoom call with friends where we started the day with a guided meditation, including EFT tapping and the Wim Hof breathing method. It was truly amazing and awoke something in my soul.
I took Zeus AKA ‘The Butt’ for a walk (love this boy).
I came across more than one butterfly on my walk today. The one in the picture actually stopped to pose. Obviously just for me. I could have smiled and walked on, but I stood there for a while simply admiring the beauty, because why not?
Towards the end of the walk, I started doing the Wim Hof breathing again, and then took a cold shower when I got home. I’ve never done the cold shower thing by choice before. Such a different feeling when it hasn’t been forced upon me due to circumstances lol.
I’ve started my today feeling so dang alive. Simply because I changed it up.
It’s made me think. Yes, think. Watch out world.
I need this as part of my daily routine. I’m sure The Butt AKA ‘The Zeus’ will appreciate the routine. Only it will start earlier than in it did today. Whilst most in my part of the world are probably still sleeping.
I don’t generally do early, but I’m willing to for this.
Slow it down. Slow down the noise. Slow down the breathing. Slow down the heart. Slow down the soul. Become one with nature. Become one with this beautiful world. Become one with whatever you are doing, or with whomever you are in this moment.
What makes you feel happy, grounded, balanced and at peace? Lean into whatever that is and make it a part of your regular routine.
The truth is that if we fail to embrace the beauty that’s right in front of us, we fail to appreciate the wonder that simply is. We’re not meant to run a marathon indefinitely. That simply leaves us feeling depleted in energy.
We are here to truly live. To breath in the breathe of life. And ground ourselves within our very existence within this moment. Powerful words.
Life was never meant to be a race. Let’s slow it down. And actually feel the breathe as we shift through our day.
You are beautiful. You are amazing. You most definitely are enough.
Make a stand in this world; and be truly present in this moment… and encourage others to do the same.
May you feel happy, whole and at peace today and always.
Thank you from the deepest depths of my heart for reading. I truly appreciate you. You see me. Thank you.
