Can you believe we are already at the end of the month and about to welcome another month in?
This entire month has been a mood… from graduation celebrations for a job well done, smelling juicy burgers and steaks on charcoal grills, basketball shorts and tank tops, sleeveless shirts and floral dresses, to summertime vibes being sang from the sweet soul of Jill Scott’s Family Reunion.
We have come a long way! A long way and we continue to press on and overcome so much.
As I sit here sipping Creme Brulee java, the moment is overflowing with gratitude. Gratitude for what has been (even the painful moments), what is present, and what is to come.
What are we looking forward to? Each day I seek to be inspired. Each day I seek to be present and authentic. Each day I want to partake in the moments. Moments such as a friend saying – hey, I love you for who you are– and an unspoken depth sits as each appreciates the connection.
There’s so much happening around us each day. We often miss the beauty by focusing on the chaos.
I challenge you to focus on the beauty of each day. Focus on each breath, inhale/exhale. Focus on the beat of your favorite song, then replay it and ride the lyrics. Focus on the smell of the moisturizer in your hair. Focus on the smell of fresh cut grass and the sound of children laughing. Focus on the silence that embraces your peace.
Show up as a person bringing beautiful energy, love, inspiration, and always making each engagement better than when you entered it.
Cheers to what’s to come! Gratitude for where we have been! Feel and Focus on the present moment.
