Love Is All Around Us, Just Waiting For Us To Find It!

Love Is All Around Us,

Just Waiting For Us To Find It!

Some days as we walk our path into the world of dementia, the road can feel bumpy and hard; not knowing where we are going or how the next moment will roll out.

But during my journey

I have learned one very important lesson.

You find only

what you are willing to see. 

heart_in_skyIf we focus on the past and what we feel we have lost, we don’t allow gratitude to enter our life. The pleasure of appreciation for what we did have. 

If we focus on the scariness of the future and all the unknowns, we shut down the opportunity to create or allow brilliant moments to occur.

BUT…

When we live in the moment before us RIGHT NOW, we have the power to create and allow into our lives that which we crave… love, engagement, acceptance, comfort, peace… laughter.

heart_sunset_treeI wish for you this Valentines Day that you see and accept the promise of hope and love that surrounds you in every nano second of each day, especially when it it not obvious. I personally know how difficult this can be to do, but I also know it is well worth the effort.

It is our individual choice to decide what we want to focus on. What we want to believe.  What we want to create.  What we want to allow to in our life.  I encourage you to slow down and look at the rocks, the sky, the trees and all that surrounds you. You may be very surprised and the signs of hope and love you see in places you never imagined.

Look For The Signs

They will warm your heart and bring you peace

in the most difficult and loneliest of moments.

May you each have a blessed day wrapped in love knowing you are not alone.

Laurie Ellis-Young and Nancy Chakrin will be our second guest today. Laurie is a pioneer in breathwork as an empowering and healing modality.  Nancy is an award-winning photographer, graphic designer and landscape painter. Together they published the book, “FRIENDSHIP The Art of the Practice,” which includes inspirational friendship quotes and photographs of women ages (10-100) doing partner yoga poses in spectacular nature settings around the globe. I think you will find this to be a very informative conversation on the power of breath.  Laurie will even take us through a breathing exercise you can do anywhere any time.
