Happy 4th of July!
How are you celebrating the day? Are you soaking in the sunshine or relaxing with your kiddos? Maybe you’re mixing up your famous patriotic dish for the neighborhood potluck (go YOU if this is your gifting! I prefer to show up with a Casey’s breakfast pizza most times at the request of my teenagers & because it is zero prep. Can I get an amen?!)
No matter how you are celebrating the day, my wish is that you are able to truly BE PRESENT wherever you are. I’ll be the first to say, this is a real CHALLENGE for me. Yes, some days I’d rather be on the beach than doing the dishes (wouldn’t we all?), but dang is there JOY in it all. Allow your feet to settle into the ground. Feel the earth below you. Take in the sights, sounds, joy, and laughter of those around you today. Whether it’s work, family, neighbors, or with wild Aunt Pam… Wherever you are, be all in. Simply BE PRESENT.
Let me know how you are focusing on BEING PRESENT in everything you do and everywhere you go. I’d love to hear! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am going ALL IN this week with my whole crew in Colorado. I am practicing being present with each of them & enjoying this extra special time together as we take in the mountains. Happy day!
