Every minute of your day consists of little, itty, bitty moments to either nonchalantly miss or to purposely be aware of and embrace.
The choice is YOURS.
How little are the moments?
A smile from a co-worker.
The first star in the sky.
The small sliver of a green & purple crocus pushing up through the melting winter snow.
Silence in the dark morning.
Your cat snoring.
The awkward moment between you and a stranger.
First time meeting a new person, but you feel an instantaneously strong, deep, soul filled connection to them, but can't put your finger on how or why?
How about 1 single e-mail, in the midst of hundreds that flood our boxes every week, and for some every day?
Do you sometimes skim through, delete without opening, trash it before reading it?
I know, I do.
Sadly or not, I have got into the habit of subscribing to every business, blogging, entrepreneur, coaching e-zine that catches my eye. The fancy design layout, cool color schemes, catchy catch phrases (yes they caught me).
I get sucked in with the endless articles on marketing, research, sales, coaching, business etc. Probably like many of us do. Always wanting to learn more and more and more...
Constantly gathering info. is a distraction, and a quaint way of procrastinating. (Fabulous form of resistance...Which I'm working on, I swear!)
And you end up losing site of the blogs, coaches, and folks you really enjoy connecting with, in the clutter of stuff, we humans have a tendency to collect.
Fate, destiny...My good fortune. I happened to not be in a quick lets get through these e-mail kinda moods this morning or I would have missed a precious moment.
A lovely blog, that I have been following for about 3 years now, is sadly closing her doors. Time for change, new direction and a new journey.
It happens. Life is about clearing your path as you go along. Keep that rock, dig up that one and move it over there. Build a little bridge, you get the gist... We create as we go, as we learn and as we begin to have more faith and trust in ourselves.
I totally get why Rootsofshe.com with beautiful Jenn Gibson will no longer be visiting my e-mail box on a weekly basis. I am beyond ecstatic for all she has shared over the years. Her wisdom, kindness, love and the most gentle heart. Though I will miss her e-mails, I wish her every wonderful thing life has to offer.
The craziest part of this, would simply be that in 3 years of reading her blog, I have never left a comment, sent an e-mail or FB message. I just read them, weekly. Always with the feeling of being more true to me. Which is what she offered...Beautiful moments of self-love. The Self LOVE Goddess.
Today, Because I didn't miss this moment, I was able to leave a comment on her blog, because I sincerely want her to know that she touched many hearts and lives. In some of my darkest moments, she showed me how to love me MORE, because she put her heart into ever word she wrote.
Don't let a moment pass, the smallest moments truly are the ones to breath deeply into your heart. For all those bloggers out there who are struggling (like me), don't give up. Keep on writing your soul out! Believe it or not, you are touching someone's life.
And if you are following a blog, don't wait to tell them you think they are doing a dynamic job or they have inspired or helped you some how. Let em' know. Small moments are really the biggest moments and being more aware of NOW will help to not miss a single one!
Lots of ((HUGZ))
