A simple movement or moment; what grace means to me.
What does it mean to be in the moment?
What does it mean to be present?
I think of these questions often as I go about the process of creating my new business venture, Ten Graces (Ten Graces is a values based business/educational concept for building awareness, creativity and sustainability).
My life is fast paced – work, parenting, relating – bringing stress and disconnection from the moment. When I feel that I’m disconnecting from myself or getting caught up in an emotion related to what happens around me (in reaction), this is were I turn to the value I refer to as grace. I bring my awareness to what’s happening inside of me, moving from being “reactive” to a conscious state of looking inward, as in to give myself a pause.
In other words, I stop thinking and tune into what I’m feeling.
I find that when I move my awareness inward, my life changes in beautiful, subtle ways. I perceive the world more intuitively. I can feel and experience myself deeper and richer; giving form to that which stirs in me.
How graceful life can be when I look inside thee….
