The holidays are all around us. Can you smell that crispness in the air, descending with the smell of falling leaves and dropping temperatures? Can you hear the birds calling a bien tot as they leave for warmer places? Do you see the sun, further in the moon, further in her sky than she was only a few months ago. Time is moving forward, as it always does, and it cradles us as we sense our way through our lives – or not.
Taking the time to SENSE what goes on around us is a discipline that brings texture to an otherwise flat canvas. It paints colors in our vision, it invites a symphony to our tastebuds, it plays laughter in our ears, and it sensually dances along the curve of our back and the inside of our arms. Sensing life ignites a new love affair with EVERYTHING. We naturally stop rushing through our days and become aware of the beautiful gift of humanity and nature.
This holiday season, take the time to LOVE the crowds, to enjoy every cent you spend and gift you buy, to leave worry on the side of the road somewhere and to Sense the love of Mother Earth cradling you and Father Time gently guiding you forward. This is a new season and a new year approaches. Fill them both with a sense of self that is unlike anything you’ve ever explored before. Choose time with those you love and gently leave obligation as a thing of your past. Choose to move beautifully, sensually through everything – the wonderful and the difficult. Be PRESENT.
