Cultivating our capacity

Cultivating our capacity

“While we can’t control what’s happening around us, we can cultivate the capacity to be with what is with more ease, joy, and freedom.” ~Sebene Selassie

Cultivating our capacity to be with what is not only makes life easier, it also gives us more energy left over to work toward changing what can be changed instead of fruitlessly resisting or trying to control our reality. How are you cultivating your capacity to be with what is in your life?

Carrying our burdens

Carrying our burdens

“It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.” ~Lena Horne

Mounting stress levels have forced me to take a hard look at the way I carry the load of my job. My work place and the pressures and challenges I face there are unlikely to change, so I’m focused on changing the way I carry that load to reduce the stress it causes me.

What loads are you carrying in your life that might benefit from changing the way you carry them?

Sweetness

Sweetness

“You are worthy of every drop of sweetness and ease that you encounter.” ~Alex Elle

Instead of resisting or feeling guilty about those moments of sweetness and ease you encounter in life, lean into them and soak up every moment. You are worthy! Enjoy them!

Loving others

Loving others

“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, what do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?” ~Bob Hope

I hope your Christmas season this year is filled with enough love that it overflows into loving others even more freely in the coming year.

Prioritizing enthusiasm

Prioritizing enthusiasm

“We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about.” ~Charles Kingsley

How much time do you spend on things you are enthusiastic about? How might your experience of life shift if you focused more on those things and less of comfort and luxury?
