Notice Contentment

Surrounded by information, but none of it is enough

Filled with ideas that conflict and confuse

Laughter stops my speeding train of thoughts…

Listening to kids playing outside my window

Content in their skin, content in the moment…

They remind me of a simple truth…

Look for moments of contentment 

Although they may be fleeting…

In those simple moments …

Things begin to make sense

And…

For a short time

Everything is enough

 

Awaken to Now

 

This longing for the past… it has to ease up.

Nostalgia…It has a shadow side

Sometimes it drags me so deep into the dark shadows

until I finally hear a whisper…to move towards the light.

Awaken to now…

Be present.

Hold the memories and gifts of the past…

While staying in the light of life…happening NOW.
