Happy Memorial Day! I am grateful for all who serve and for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation today and every day. Find a few minutes to reflect and express your gratitude today.
This weekend is also the unofficial start to the summer season! I spent Friday and Saturday at the Bay (photo) spending a little quality time with a good friend. It was just what I needed to renew my spirit and begin the season with a smile in my heart! I grew up near the water and take every opportunity to spend time near the water - ocean, gulf, lake, bay, etc. - the water brings me peace.
In my last post, the topic was R is for Reinvention! I love to think about how I can reinvent, whether its myself, a favorite recipe, a room, etc. For me, reinvention is an exciting opportunity to take a step back and reflect then change and move forward. Not everyone looks at reinvention in a positive light. It can be scary for some and painful for others. Its scary and painful at times for me, too.
How do you take a step back and reflect? Meditation is a good way to quiet the mind and reflect on recent events. Listen for your intuition to guide you. Is there something or someone that is bothering you, a situation that is not quite right? Reflect upon that and see how your intuition guides you.
When I work with clients, we take a holistic approach and review significant events in their lives and review them through the lens of Pythagoras and the reinvention cycles. It's simply fascinating. The process helps us look back over our lifetime so that we can move forward with a greater understanding of ourselves.
I challenge you to take a few minutes to reflect about reinvention. We are in the midst of a Gemini Mercury Retrograde where all things 're' seem to be in focus: re-focus, re-new, re-flect, re-invent, you get the idea. So if there is an area of your life that isn't quite the way you want, spend a little time thinking about reinvention and take one small step in the direction your dreams.
Don't let anyone or anything dull your SPARKle.
Peace, love and sparks! Deb
