This is a blogpost that I meant to write already a few weeks ago and then… well, life kicked in. The good thing is, it feels even more relevant now than a few weeks ago.
Now is this moment in the year that blesses me sometimes with those unexpected gifts. Sunny days, bright colors outside, children back at school all of a sudden making leaps in their capabilities … and this year also: beginning new journeys with new, wise and courageous clients.
And then, there is this other feeling. A feeling of not wanting to let go, not losing what I love so much right now. I feel like I would like to hold on to the colors, the light, the moment in my clients’ journeys and my kids’ skills.
I feel like screaming: don’t, fall, take it all away from me!!!
And while my head knows that only by letting go, I can welcome what’s next … emotionally I still hang on to what is here, what I don’t want to let go and that I know I ultimately will have to let go… What a perfect way to spoil the last warm, sunny days! Rather than getting outside and enjoy the warmth, I’ll already sit and mourn what is still here.
After so much work on living in the NOW – here’s more work to do for me.
So, here I start: I am grateful for this wonderful day and I’m going to enjoy it with my wild kids and forget about homework!
How about you? What do you absolutely want to hold on to today and how can you enjoy it fully?
