Holly & Heather’s Helpful Hint: Accepting Life’s Curveballs
While reflecting on last week’s blog which focused on positive change as part of our New Year’s resolutions, some horrible tragedies were unfolding in our country and around the world this week. We don’t know about you but for us it takes a Herculean effort to stay mindful and positive while such sadness takes center stage in the lives of others. Accepting tragedy, disappointment, imperfections in our lives and communities becomes increasingly difficult. That is why a resolution to promote positive, peaceful actions is even more vital.
Taking time to sit quietly each morning and set our intention for the day, one day at a time, is so important. It centers us and helps put the important matters of the day forefront on our agendas. Among the “busy-ness” of the day – work, errands, etc. – there is always time for love, kind words and a helpful spirit while we are immersed in our day. Is is hard? It can be at times. Do curve balls get thrown even as we’re trying our best? Absolutely. But should we stop trying? Never.
