Listening is a big part of finding my balance. It helps me to quiet the chatter of my mind, helping to erase the what if and doubts that arise. And it gives clarity in which direction my heart really wants to go so that when I take that step it is in confidence.
Balance is a keyword to my life. It is like the love of a mother asking me if I am taking care of myself. Today's Autumnal Equinox has mother nature giving the most beautiful reminder on balance.
I listen to the woods coming alive outside my window as the sun begins to creep over the horizon. Some of the trees are beginning to turn colors, finding the balance of giving energy and receiving it. They have been actively working all Summer and now they will begin to prepare for the rest of Winter.
I'm grateful for nature's reminders of balance. I'm grateful for the Autumnal Equinox and the changing of the leaves that is to come. I'm grateful to do my best to find balance in my life. I'm grateful to pause and listen before I act. I'm grateful to follow my heart. I'm grateful for this time of year, its reminders, and its beauty.
What helps you balance? What beauty do you see around you when you are balanced and paying attention?
May today remind us to pause and to play. May we find the balance that works best for our individual needs. Have a beautiful day!
