In true perfect timing, I stumbled upon this documentary yesterday (the first of the new year; the quintessential day of new beginnings) and completely fell in love. I'm begging you to watch this movie ASAP (I snagged it OnDemand) because it beautifully aligned with all of my intentions for 2012 and I know it will resonate with my readers, too. I felt truly inspired (and admittedly a little teary, duh, that's totally my style) watching all of my beliefs be outlined before me, scientifically proven and eloquently affirmed by some of the top minds, hearts and souls of the world. We are truly all connected. You will not regret spending time absorbing this films message, I promise!
If you have the day off today I hope you're fully enjoying whatever it is you wish to be doing.
Have a super long to-do list? I hope you feel lighter after having enthusiastically completed it. There are few things in life that feel as good as crumpling up a piece of paper marked with crossed-out tasks. Phew! Soak up that sense of basic accomplishment. Breathe easier.
Watching football all day? I hope for exciting, fairly officiated games (and maybe a couple of clutch upsets). Easy on the beers and nachos, though, OK? Your hot bodies will appreciate that tomorrow.
Have no motivation to do much of anything as a mean case of the lazys has already set in? I hear ya. Embrace it. Don't feel badly for taking time to find pleasure in staying in, cuddling up or nap o'clocking all afternoon. We put so much pressure on ourselves to be the kings and queens of productivity that we neglect to appreciate a day of quiet nothing. I am certainly a gal who loves to adventure and go-go-go...but I also refuse to beat myself up for honoring my body's urge to just be still. Shift your perspective on the validity of this urge. Be grateful you even have this choice, ya know?
Have awesome days! And seriously. "I Am". Watch it. Now. Please? So much love and light pours from it every minute.
