Today is Friday…
It is the end of the week, early in the morning and for me a time of reflection. I love getting up at 4 am. My phone doesn’t ring, no text messages, no emails, no distractions and the world outside my cave (my home office) is very still and peacefully quiet. The perfect time to catch up on all the loose ends of the week and bring them to completion.
It is Friday and I am reflecting on my week. I am aware that something has changed. And with these sense, I peer deeper into my thoughts. This week has been different. Was it because I over-booked my week to capacity with coaching, team calls, radio shows, household errands, etc. No, it was more than the “human” list of things that were in my calendar to do.
I noticed my perceptions had shifted and how I spent the past week more “in the moment” of my work. I had made a conscious decision that if I was to get through this packed week, and survive, I would have to stay in the moment so I wouldn’t overwhelm myself with the realization that I might have overdone my calendar. I consciously chose that in every moment, I would be fully present with my whole being. I willed myself to keep my thoughts and actions in the moment and refused to let myself slip into the future contemplating what was next on my agenda. I noticed that if I wasn’t purposeful I could easily slip into swaying back and forth between the past and the future and lose touch with the present. Yea, I could watch my mind wander and take most of me with it!
As I reflect, I am noticing that I was present, fully present in mind, body and spirit in my work place and home space. And each of these moments in time were magical. The energy was heightened, new levels of possibilities were reached and a symphony of energetic tones resonated out and had an affect on everything it touched. I felt more alive!
In my reflection, I am reminded how everything that we do or say carries its own energetic tone, its own vibration and we are responsible for its creation and its subsequent affect on all it touches. I am conscious in my thoughts, my words and my actions. I choose this week to be fully present and in that choice I witnessed my own energy in motion.
I remembered that as I started this new year, I wanted to begin doing something that made a difference in the lives of the people I touched. It was seemingly a simple choice.
“I want to do something that makes a difference, working with other women who want to make a difference, doing something together that really can make a difference!”
Yet, as I reflect, I understand how profound that choice was and continues to be! Is life this simple, to just make a choice to make a difference in the moment? Not focused on pre-planning the “difference”, just a willingness and a desire to be present co-creating with spirit just to execute the “difference” in the moment. Hmm… What if it was that simple? What if all the days that end in “y” are that simple? What a week that could be!
