I wish all of you were here with me at my house.
More specifically sitting along side me in my office:
(oh and lest you imagine it’s all as immaculate as my desk—this is what’s behind me. a mess of a (finger quote) fitness center (unFQ).)
Because then I could lovingly turn to you and say:
I know youre so very busy (& we’d digress to chatting about why GROWN UPS dont get a summer vaycay) but Id love for you to visit me at the Attune Foods blog.
And you’d sling your arm over my shoulder, smile and respond:
Girl (thats what you’d call me) I am so.slammed. I cant believe I made it *here* today. Whatcha talking about over there?
And Id grab you by the shoulders–with a firm yet loving grasp—spin you around to face me and reply:
Yes. Everything. All of it. A reflection on how I got to where I am (mindfully.), how Ive maintained (weightloss.sanity.) & how I know Ill keep moving forward on my path (focus.priorities).
You’d pause. You’d furrow your brow. You’d glance around the room. You’d admire my mural:
You’d think about all the “stuff” you “have” to do and all the “distractions” from real living and mindful living in the day(s) ahead.
And you’d say YES.
You’d pause your day. Give yourself the gift of time & self-reflection. Youd come hang out with me and we’d ponder together.
