A Simple Kind of Life…

It seems like such an easy thing, "simplify your life"...yet we constantly find it hard to actually do and further more, maintain. As of late, I've found myself with a hectic schedule, one that teeters on the edge of being manic. I fall into bed exhausted each night,...

The Art of Being Selfless: What My Mother Taught Me

I've been afforded opportunities to bear witness to people performing selfless acts of kindness, some were isolated incidents while others simply lived their lives in servitude of others. No matter the circumstance, giving selflessly is about setting aside your ego....

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 2 Meditation Reflections

I know firsthand the challenge of moving myself out of living in the past and untangling  the emotions, fear, uncertainty and a horde of other feelings that have resulted in my being stagnant in the now.

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 3 Meditation Reflections

What is the purpose of our engagement in anything we do? It could be obligation, a sense of responsibility, a genuine desire to participate – no matter the reason, how we define those moments is what shapes our view on the time we spend doing it.

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 4 Meditation Reflections

In the past, my largest obstacles to making time for these activities were my schedule, getting home late from work, and not wanting to unplug from all the digital stimulus when I should.

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 5 Meditation Reflections

We are committing to creating healthful habits for ourselves now so that we can enjoy a more comfortable existence in our older years. Growing old is inevitable, but whether or not we are able to do so with as much ease, grace and peace in mind, body and spirit is definitely something we have full control over!   

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 6 Meditation Reflections

It is said that when we are naturally tuned in we feel aware and alive. This present-moment consciousness can help to spark our creative tendencies and help us to sit more fully in our truths, passions and pursuits!

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 7 Meditation Reflections

I find that when I’m able to maintain my vigilance in the quality of my thoughts and to where and whom I channel my energy I am better equipped to stand squarely in whatever it is I am doing and with whomever I am doing it.

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 8 Meditation Reflections

During this day’s meditation we are taught that we are able to turn our wounds into wisdom and we have the ability to take any situation and find an opportunity for change, healing, forgiveness, awareness, etc.

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 9 Meditation Reflections

Understanding that we aren’t powerless to bear the things others say we can’t change is the critical first step. All change has come from some sort of discomfort, unease or dis-ease and a longing for something different, something more.

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 14 Meditation Reflections

I have always said that a life goal would be to own a wellness center for people to come and heal their minds, bodies and spirits. A place where they feel safe, accepted and appreciated. Where they are free to just be or transform themselves and their lives in the ways that nourish them.

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 13 Meditation Reflections

Being happy is a daily life goal and it shouldn’t be a challenge to do what I need to do in order to make happiness a constant in my life.

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 12 Meditation Reflections

When we honor our approach to time we are better equipped to allow other the space to honor their approach as well. This practice also provides a precious opportunity for something we are passionate about at The Swell, conscious communication!

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 11 Meditation Reflections

I have made it a priority to spend time with those that are most precious to me and to be fully involved in whatever time we’re able to spend together. I’ve found that in doing so, inevitably all the goals that I aim to achieve, are. 

“Making Every Moment Matter” – Day 10 Meditation Reflections

I know that I feel optimally well in mind, body and spirit when I move my body. The satisfying feeling from physical exertion and time spent in purposeful practice whether it be yoga, hiking or exercising never fails to rejuvenate and uplift me.
