I don’t know about you but I am one of those people full of sound advice (for you) but not so good at taking that advice myself.
If this period of change is to be exploited then it requires a change of attitude; a letting go of expectations, outcomes and fear. It is a time to slow down, to be in the moment, to be unafraid and to just be.
In striving to do the right thing, and to be the person we want to be; in striving to live a life of gratitude and service; it’s all too easy to forget that it all starts at home, with those closest to us. If we can’t practice being of service and gratitude there then what hope is there for our being able to take this attitude and way of life further afield?
I remembered back to my yoga class a few hours earlier and the pranayama; I closed my eyes, turned my gaze inwards and focussed on my breath.
