Something I love about IG is the community. I struggle with being in this space too much. Because I have other spaces in my life that need my attention too. I talk/write about mindful living and want to be honest about how that looks in my life. But this space and those of you here. Ohmyheart. The other day, one of you emailed me in response to my post on Tuesday. A song had been triggered for you, and you shared that with me. How awesome is that? That this dear person reached out to me in that way. I’m currently listening to that song on repeat. Feeling connected. And full, in a very good way. . . Go listen to Alanis Morissette’s “Receive”. . . Thank you, J. You have a big heart and a generous spirit.
possibly the last morning out with the board for a while...it’s been an amazing summer and I’m grateful I managed to get myself out of bed quite a few times. the calm lake managed to calm myself and help me center and to flow with ease... #morninglake#tinytinymoments#turnthelensonself
The feeling of a fullness that is so full surely there will be an overflowing and the overflowing will manifest in the falling of tears from eyes. Yes, that. . I’m signing off for a bit. If you read my blog and Monthly Notes, you know this. If you only see me here, now you know too. Catch you on the flip side. 💗 . #mgdself#turnthelensonself#tinytinymoments#wednesdaywednesday
Monday’s reflection: What The Silence Says ... “I know that you think that you already know but— Wait . Longer than that. . even longer than that.” ~~ Marie Howe ... I want to be silent enough to hear what the flowers have to say. ... Wishing you many quiet moments throughout this new week.Happy Monday!
There’s a lot going on in my corner of the world right now. You too? One of the practices that roots me, centers me, heals me is creative listmaking. Not just the lists of to-dos. But also the lists of me and other: the lists of dreams and questions and musings. The lists of being and seeing. . Consider this an extra-special invitation to join me in making lists for 10 days. Ten days to pause and gather, to reflect and share. The class is called Just Five Things. . Are you interested? Click link in profile for more info. We gather June 11-22, and I’d love to have you. . #justfivethings#onlineclass#creativelistmaking#ilovelists#justshowup#shine
Sometimes I hit upon a prompt for myself that is phrased just so. A prompt that invites me to look in ever so slightly a new way. A prompt that lifts me, pushes me, holds me. This happened the other day. . I share the prompt on my blog. Hope to see you there. xo . #getitdown#justshowup shine #turnthelensonself#mgdself
Woman reading...’Reading Woman’, a selection from the Middle Ages to present day of paintings, drawings, prints and photos of women reading. (Slide to see the front cover.) .... This: “I have sometimes dreamt that when the Day of Judgement dawns and great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards — their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble — the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms, ‘Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them. They loved reading.’” —Virginia Woolf, ‘How Should One Read a Book?’, in The Common Reader. I came across the quote in A History of Reading by Alberto Manguel. .... Wishing you all a happy weekend!✨📚✨🌹
