Feel your heart.
And engage the next moment without an agenda.
I wish these words would flash in front of my eyes as needed throughout the day. I know that I am not always making the right choices in the moment. I know that the words that come out of my mouth are not always healing and supportive. I try to envision myself taking a breath and being fully present amongst the chaos. And then I think, while I’m doing that a child is beating on another. When do I have the time to make these words work for me?
Maybe this is the ultimate lesson this year. Learning how to be present within chaos.
I know that when I am present and feel my heart I am able to feel what comes next and act in a way that is loving and supportive of the people around me. Those are the moments when I remember, I can do this. I need those moments to become more frequent and last longer.
