From Zen to Angels.
The first thing I notice this morning is the smell of earth. Wet soil from the rain the night before. A promise of autumn despite the unusually warm September. Curious sun rays peeking through the changing foliage. Newly fallen leaves rustling underneath my tires. Plenty of crickets with their funny songs. Birds chirping in the trees and quacking by the river. My young son imitating the sounds around him and relaxing in his trailer. Lively squirrels and chipmunks passing our path in a hurry. Taking deep breaths, and filling my soul as I am expanding my lungs. Finding My Zen.
A quick stop for snacks, securing my bicycle to a metal stand. Surprised when the lock malfunctions a few minutes later. My mode of transportation remains stuck despite numerous attempts by multiple bypassers. No one is able to set me free even with a newly purchased Wd-40. Toddler is getting antsy in his seat, hungry and nearing nap time. Is this an emergency for the police? My new friends and helping hands Steve and Sue seem to think so. In a few minutes two officers arrive and my son says “tut tut” when he sees their vehicle. With a bolt cutter they release my bike from the stubborn cable. Feeling blessed. 4 angels arriving when I needed them.
@loveandfemininity and @brotheromi I. Definitely. Need. This. Hanging from a string above my head every night so that when I wake up, this is the first thing I see... nah but for real I need to put this on the fridge and on both bathroom mirrors #DontForgetToBeThankful#BlessingsEveryDay
I found this journal the other day and read the front " Be still" it was like I was meant just for me I'm sure it could have any scripture on it and I would have love it but this is what I needed to hear.
I haven't written in one in years but I am going to incorporate it into my routine. I was researching the benefits of having a journal ✔️effective stress relief exercise and will help you unplug so you can recharge ✔️Boost memory and comprehension ✔️spark your creativity ✔️strengthens communication skills
I feel like sometimes during the writing process I see things more clearly. Sometimes the entries don't start out positive but I always find the blessings 💗 I would suggest incorporating this somewhere in your life even if it's only once a week
