Day 6. Just Be

"Stop right now"

"Take time every day to stop running, stop planning, stop multitasking, and be still. If five minutes a day is all you have, start with that." ~ Elizabeth Sam
There is something good and right to give ourselves permission to take a few minutes to stop and 'just be'... especially during these busy times.

Stop right now. Do it! Take a deep breath and say your name out loud. Gently. Soothingly. Now say this to yourself...

Best Beloved, I give you permission to stop what you're doing and be restful for 5 minutes. You're free to stop list making, baking, shopping, multi-tasking, zooming around doing chores on empty. AND, I release you from any sense of guilt or shame.

Draw another deep breath and let it out slowly. You should notice a difference -- a peaceful calm -- starting to settle around you. The stress and tension should start melting away. And feel a balance returning. You might even notice that the birds have been singing all morning and you're finally noticing.

Now go and live today... joyfully.

  1. I'm reading this at the end of the day, Brenda, and it's very apt. Today I took the time to just be - a walk in Butchart Gardens, and now a quiet evening beside the fire. Such a great reminder to all of us. Thank you.


There's no need to leave a comment ... just enjoy. The reason I opened the comments is because there were some interested to leave a 'footprint'.

Wishing you joy to your world....
