When I’m jarred out of sleep at 5:00 in the morning, it’s usually my thoughts that have reared up to say hello. The first question, fuzzily asked, is often something like, “what do you think is going to happen?” And as I don’t know the answer, my mind starts to drift around and search for solutions, answers, an end point. I’m awake for good, out of my flow and generally discombobulated.

I’m not by nature a very patient person and the concept of working acceptance and trusting the flow of the universe has always sounded good when uttered out of my mouth during a yoga class; but as applied practice this kind of faith and the accompanying wait is very challenging.

I work on patience every single day, partly through a morning and evening meditation practice (5-10 mins), supported by yoga balancing poses (15 mins) and journaling my desires (5 mins.). And I do it because, as a result of all of the hard work I have put into the concept, the unexpected and magnificent often reveals itself when I pause, breath, release the ego of the mind and trust. It might take its time; but easing into grace and standing in my own truth is a beautiful thing.

Patience evokes sweet opportunities and powerfully expansive openings to heart-felt, enduring creativity that feeds my soul and propels me into the gentle loving service of others and the equally compelling coinherence with a power greater than myself.

Tonight ‘s post is a tender reminder to stay with the wisdom of my  daily patience practice.  Today, I am grateful, peaceful and full of an enthusiasm to keep on keeping on, while I keep patience close to my heart.

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
