New Beginnings….

“New Beginnings are disguised as painful ending.”   – Lao Tzu

I saw a beautiful display of love and friendship among my co-workers yesterday. Our dear friend, I’ll call Sarah, has had a most difficult time with a recent break-up that has left her sad, feeling lonely, and negative. As a group, we reminded her of her beauty, both inside and out. We encouraged her to focus and reflect on imagining a more fulfilling and joyful life that awaits her! Sarah is truly a women of extraordinary light that will meet someone special one day ~ she just has to believe.

Life is not always easy. In fact, we have times of great sadness and great happiness. I have found that the best way to live life, is to live in the moment. I know that is easier said than done. Mainly because I have struggled with living in the moment, myself. But, the more I practice, the easier it gets! Seriously living one day a time, really one moment at a time, is the key to happiness. It is quite liberating to not concern yourself with your past. The past is over- done! What pain, hurt, and rejection you have experienced~ let it go….
Living in the moment means appreciating and loving your life NOW! Along the same lines, experiencing and accepting life as it comes, the flow of life….

A thought from yoga to leave you with:
Life is transient, there’s only so much we can plan for; but there is so much more happiness to be experienced when we learn to live with the flow… fearing less and letting go, flowing more and truly experiencing life as it happens~
