I Am Well. You Are Well.

Hello BeLoveDs. Happy Saturday during the time of Covid from my ShelterIn Place….my backyard yoga mat.

My ShelterIn Place

Everyone should have one…that place to go inside and dwell for a little while.

Think of this place as a gift from the present time, of a pandemic, and the call to shelter in place. Maybe the call is bigger than that? Maybe the call is to learn to slow down and find stillness from within.

This morning I enjoyed listening to Oprah talk about well being and focus on a zoom call posted on Facebook. I love technology. I rolled out my mat and listened while I flowed through my own practice and ended with the meditation that was shared at the end of the online meeting. What a gift! Thank you, Oprah for sharing your wellness journey.

My friend…I love when you stop by.
Be Well BeLoveDs.

My wish for you is to enjoy this day, as it unfolds. Stay well.

Namaste💛

Sharing Boba Tea

A negative mind will never give you a positive life.

This was what was sitting on our table at the tea shop. I love quotes and sayings that make me think.

Last week I was lucky enough to share tea with Jessie. She’s in junior high school and we’ve been friends since before she was born.

We used to paint our nails together and go on nature walks, playing with and picking up the fallen leaves in the neighborhood.

For Christmas a couple years ago, I gave her gift cards to get bubble teas, which all the kids love around here in Silicon Valley.

A couple weeks ago, I shared a picture of her via text, from our joint family vacation, that made me smile as I relived the joy from that day. I casually mentioned letting me know if she wanted to get away for a tea date.

She texted me back, smiling from the memories and later texted again asking if I wanted to go for tea on Friday. My schedule was full and I said yes. Creating space for joy and intention and connection is on my priority list. I texted her mom to be sure it was okay. I love having things to anticipate and this brought great joy.

Friday came and the two of us headed out for our date. We sat and shared our drinks, popcorn chicken and conversation without cell phones interrupting us. We didn’t want to go back.

I loved this moment and hearing about her life. I’m sure glad she wasn’t too busy and chose to want to spend time with me and tea.

Thanks Jessie for making my day.

Life is good.

Be the light

“Live righteously and love everyone; you will build up around you an aura of light and love.”

If we’re all doing the right thing and not just for ourselves, but for the greater good, we’ll be part of the creation of the beautiful world we live in.Be the light.

Be the love.

This is us.

🙏🏻

Happy Friday, BeLoveRs.

Be Giving

“Be giving, forgiving, compassionate and loving.”

You gotta love a cup of tea that comes with an inspirational message.

Julie gave me this fun mug for my birthday and when I drink from it I think of her and smile. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. I brought her with me to work and it was like having my friend with me.

Speaking of my giving and loving friend, today she sent in a healthy breakfast for our bright and early team meeting. What a sweet and caring surprise. I love her and the breakfast parfait was quite a treat too. I am so lucky!

I am surrounded by giving and loving friends and family and they sure make life sweet. Last night Pat baked three different types of cookies for our PEO meeting to share with all of us. And today Sam took me out to lunch because he thought I needed to get out of the office. I want to be like them when I grow up! Or maybe I am practicing being like them, while I grow up.

Tonight Juliana and I baked Snickerdoodle cookies to share and give away. As she was packing up some up to take with her to share with her friend, she said that I had rubbed off on her. I smiled. Today was good.

Life. Full circle. Karma. Connection. Thankful.

I am content and can’t wait to share cookies and tea again tomorrow.

Namaste BeLoveRs.
