March 2014

"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the Sunset."
Crowfoot, a leader of the Blackfoot nation

If we let it, and sometimes before even noticing it . . . Life can get away from us. Work - Responsibilities - Deadlines - even our hobbies and "fun activities" can put a strain on our time. As we are juggling all our commitments, it can seem like life is just passing us by. We are going though the motions, but we are not.... "Living" life. We are constantly at either "A" . . . or . . . "C" and we completely miss the . . . "B". . . We completely miss the, "Living" . . . the . . ."Be"ing. Being present . . Being in the moment . . . Being aware of and appreciating the ever changing Now! 

For the month of March make a commitment to yourself to . . . "Be."
Be Present.
Be in the Moment.

Pick a morning to Be with a glass of ice cold refreshing water, or a cup of your favorite tea or coffee. Don't just drink it... Be with it! Notice how it looks - the sounds you hear - how the glass or cup feels in your hands, and then against your lips. How it feels as the liquid passes over your tongue, glides down your throat, and into your body.

Take a walk by yourself or with a loved one and Be aware of all the beauty... Be aware of . . . The Sights - The Sounds - The Feelings you have. Pay attention to your breath, breathing in pure oxygen, feeding your body with health and vitality.

When is the last time you gave yourself the gift of witnessing a Sunrise or Sunset? Not just watching one, but really Being present with one? Dedicate just 1 morning and 1 evening this month to fully experience a Sunrise and a Sunset. Find a perfect location and allow yourself to totally absorb what you See - Hear - and Feel; to completely Be with the Sunrise and Sunset.

Caution, this could all. . . Be . . . addicting! : )
