For a Smoother Takeoff

“Prepare your doors for departure and cross check, please” said the pilot before departing the gate.

How often in our daily lives do we launch without proper preparation?

The brief pause to transition from one moment to the other – to conduct a cross check and prepare for what comes next – provides clarity, confidence, and confirmation that I am ready to move forward.

This cross check also eliminates potential danger and reduces the likelihood of unfortunate outcomes.

On the rhythm of every breath lies the opportunity to prepare for departure, to make wiser choices, and be ready for what lies ahead.

And, with that next exhale, looking keenly and calmly ahead, I softly whisper, “Cross check complete.”

Joyously Moving Forward

Joyously Moving Forward 2

Dissolving the idea that work, life, or who I am needs direction, drive, determination, pain or intense commitment. Simply moving along wherever the joy takes me. Knowing that is enough.

Joyously moving forward.

Where You Live

Front Door

Nothing that enters from the outside can define a person.  From within – from the space of the heart – comes the guidance and morality by which we live.  Your heart is where you live.
