Have you ever woken up in the morning with the feeling that something is missing, something subtle and yet so elemental for your well-being? If you give yourself self the time, the space, the the quiet, you can gently begin a conversation with yourself. Yes, I said it, a conversation with yourself! When is the last time you swung on a swing? Petted a horse or other animal you liked as a child? Eaten a warm gooey chocolate chip cookie? Or jumped up and down for now reason? Walking in nature and pausing to admire the leaves on a tree, the blades of grass, and the different colors and shapes of the clouds at sunset, are all gifts you can give yourself, and all it costs us a little time ND open-mindedness. The world has sadly taught many of us that our inner child is not welcome, our once open hearts must be walled off from the world in order for us to be safe. But our hearts, the purity of our inner child and how our heart once was, open, curious, accepting, and loving, is within our reach. So today, this week, this month, live in this moment, I this very second. Capture a happy memory,, find a butterfly, sit by a babbling brook. And know that you are loved, and know that you are love.
