I have found so much relief in allowing myself to be, as my mentor calls in, an average bear. Life is so much more open, more wonderful, more full of life juice when we live in the moment in the now and let go of the striving. It is the difference between ease and stress. The difference between contentment and dissatisfaction. And when we live in contentment we are so much more available to the moment and we see the beauty and possibility all around us. It allows us to take a step, see what shows up and then be with what shows up. It makes the colors brighter and the textures richer. Thanks for this reminder. ❤️
