Recently, on a visit to my brother in New York City, I saw a silver glint beneath a tree. So incongruous with the natural terrain, I took a photo.
Where am I at in this journey to eat less, pray more and love abundantly? I’ve gained weight. Pray on the fly and recently had an epic fight with the hubby. Needless to say, I am not as far down the road as I would like.
Had a mirror moment with a dear friend today. Mirror moments are those rare occasions when someone else shows you something about yourself you never saw before.
Standing in my filthy kitchen she gave me a mirror moment. No really-the floor has a trail of melty popsicle drippings resembling a Technicolor crime scene.
Where am I @ in my mothering? When I went away for an overnight, my kids ran to the door upon my return and screamed, “You’re FINALLY home!” I was gone less than 24 hours. That’s love abundant.
Where am I @ in my career? My boss, the kind of dream boss who is more mentor than bureaucrat, told me to do what I had promised to do. My work, my word, is my integrity-in or out of the boardroom. I pray for more character building moments in the midst of the memos.
Where am I @ with eating less? Not.at.all. Someday, just not today.
Where am I @ with praying more? I couldn’t get through a day without it.
Where am I @ with loving abundantly? I have found love in the most surprising places. In a cuddle with a sweaty little boy while watching a movie. In dropping off a frozen lemonade to my tired salesman hubby. In laughing with friends until 1 a.m. while restaurant staff impatiently look on. In a smile from my Dad in the midst of his painful battle.
Where are you @? I would love to hear.
Glad you are on the journey with me.
Here is a song which inspired me. It’s about choosing the Divine in the midst of the destructive. Had to share.
