Yes, Thoughts are not facts. Yes thoughts are just thoughts ...ever changing & fleeting. YET thoughts are what can spur us onward or slow us down. Thoughts, hopes, musings, dreams...some will be realized others thankfully never fulfilled.. The Rhythm that flows within Reality means accepting the Good, the Bad & the Ugly that comprises our daily lives. Each Unique moment is both Vibrant and yet stark!
Natures Gift- Life in LOCKDOWN Can be both Challenging & Lonely! Let Nature In.... A Pathway to Replenishing that Zest & Energy for Life whilst in Isolation. Here's to an Awakened Day for us all.
Another day & the sunshine is still shyly peeping between the fluffy Cumulus clouds in our light blue Irish sky- Even in these times of April Lockdown, I marvel at how Nature unwittingly catches us Humans unaware & inspires awe which in turn sparks a sense of unflinching hope- A deep feeling that together caring we will even in the midst of uncertainty bloom & flourish like the blossoms I see emerging all around me.
"Capture that Pause, lightly close the eyes over, take those 4 mindful breaths & open to vividly see what is ahead of you.- Open to the 'Wonder Senses' let the feel, touch & sound revitalize & energize our Human Zest once more-
as with heart, mind & body we live another day - fully Awake & Aware of our part.".
It is so important after all our shared commitments, inspiring compassion & nationwide efforts that we don't fall into default- complacent mode! As I awoke today a little weary because as a Principal I sorely missed our lovely little school & its incredible boys and girls , yet I felt a smile brighten my sore expression & then It just hit me - yes we are definitely united all doing our upmost to protect the most vulnerable throughout this awful pandemic but it is also about these little 4 & 5 year olds who eternally copy our ways, absorbing what we do not what we say! And with heart, I truly believe when we look back that we can say 'Yes we tried, Yes we came together, Yes we faced the reality & Yes we responded rather than reacted!' That to me is complete mindful thought. No approach is perfect, but some are simply more compassionate, more inclusive & more mindful than others. So I felt I needed to remind myself that hey Nicki "It's Always Mindfulness O'Clock!"
Keep Safe, Healthy & Sane everyone.
The Irish Sunshine (perhaps because it is rare enough) seems to revitalize & help us restores our zest & hope especially during these Covid 19 times- If you like why not take 15 mins downtime to try this little visualization- " Capture- the -Sunsoundcloud.com/user-83990243
