Today, when Shiloh was running and chasing balls she looked so graceful and effortless with fur blowing in the wind. She got me thinking about this idea of ease and grace and how do we have more of it in our lives.
In a world that is pulling us in so many directions, with so many distractions, lots to get done, busyness, family, jobs and so on…
“How do you center and move through life with ease and grace?”
Grace can mean many things, we honor and bless our food by saying grace, we honor other people by giving them and granting them grace when they make mistakes. I think we also need to remember to do this for ourselves. Our past doesn’t define us, our current circumstances do not define us, it’s just where we are right now. Showing ourselves grace in those moments of frustration or when the thoughts of, “why does this always happen to me,” or “why am I in this place in my life,” or when any other negative feelings or self-talk comes up.
Granting ourselves grace is the greatest gift. I am where I am, it is what it is, and there are lessons to learn. Moving forward with less resistance, with less self-judgment and criticism, will open the door to more allowing. Allowing things to come into your life and allowing life to happen with a greater state of flow, while releasing the overwhelm and frazzle.
What will help you feel in more flow and have more grace as you move through your day?
Around what needs to get done and also, what you can attract and allow into your life. So you can make the changes and adjustments, learn from the lessons and not let them define you or keep you stuck in a place that you don’t want to be.
That’s my challenge today…how can you make those shifts in a more graceful way, a more easy way. Things don’t have to be hard. That’s a mindset and language that we use and conversations that we allow that won’t move us forward.
Notice next time you are saying something is hard or you are being negative about yourself or someone else. Pause and ask yourself, “Is that true?” “Is this conversation or inner dialogue really going to move the needle for me?” “Am I practicing grace in this moment?” All change and GRACE starts with awareness!
To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease and lightness.
