Living up to my nickname

These are busy times! I am living up to my blogger name - happybzymama. I love being active.

This morning, while walking with Marcelo early, I saw a man sitting in his garage, just enjoying the sunset. We waved at him, and exchanged "good morning" greetings.

As we walked past, all I kept thinking was.. "when was the last time I had a day with absolutely no "to-do" list or work on my plate?" I sighed.

Now I am not dumb enough to think that this is not my own doing. Having 3 jobs, and 1 more this fall comes with it's tremendous blessings, but also some tough moments. Last night and today I had so much to do that I found myself not really living in the the moment at all, but rather thinking ahead to what needed to be done next. My mind was actually racing.. like a speedy heartbeat.

So, since this is a very busy time.. I wanted to spend some time meditating on slowing down. I would like to share with you all the thoughts that are helping me find peace in the midst of the hustle and bustle that is our life.

“The possibility is to recognize that all our stories, however complex and multilayered, however deeply implanted in our genetic structure, our only stories. The truth of who you are is not a story. The vastness and the closeness of that truth precedes all stories.”
