I love this time of year! August! I hardly remember the days of August that came and went in last year’s lockdown. With all that still in my recent memory I am purposefully making the most of these beautiful days. And this beautiful month.
I’m mindfully aware of how comfortable we can be in our own space and how ridged we can be in a new space or a new normal. This August feels like a new space in many ways. We are frequently facing new challenges in this new normal. I suggest we must push ourselves past the reasons why a new normal won’t work. This new normal of this August gives up the opportunity to leave the struggles of the year behind and offers the choice to create a better place. We can challenge ourselves, breathe deep, take steps forward, leave old challenges behind and perceive this new normal in a new day. Another beautiful day, indeed!
