Monday Moment: Getting warmer


This quote has been ringing in the back of my mind lately…as you set out to start a fresh week, maybe it will resonate with you as well. Sometimes, when we turn inward with mindfulness, we find things we would rather have ignored. Other times, or maybe even at the same time, we find the opposite. We connect with just what we need — energy, motivation, optimism, hope — right in there along with other, more challenging, emotions.

Whatever may be asking a little extra of you this week, may you be able to connect to some of that positivity – the resiliency – that is always within you. You have everything you need to walk the path you are on, but connecting with those deep, internal resources can take effort. Start with your intention, your attention, and your breath, and go from there. You may quickly find that you’re getting warmer already.
