Summer is upon us! It's a time to make memories and recall the previous ones we've made. Summertime allows us to be outdoors more often to enjoy the various happenings'
many sights, sounds, and smells. I so enjoy watching children frolicking about without a care in the world. An effortless smile comes to our faces when recalling that age of innocence. To look further into these feelings, it could be the sense of freedom or loss of control while being fully in the moment.
How often does the sense of responsibility or need for control take over an event or moment that started with a beautiful sense of wonder and excitement? Only to lose sight of the connection with others when locked into those habitual patterns and behaviors that no longer serve but are still being served!
Summertime is a great time to make room for a little of our childlike essence to be set free! Provide a reprieve to lighten the burden or stresses of life when so doing. Let us try and imagine you're joining those children in their contagious fits of laughter when you next find yourself out in nature. Perhaps at the ocean's edge or staring into the summer sky with the intent to open and allow your system to take in the fresh, clear new energies of summer. The fire within our hearts wants nothing more than to open and receive these expansive energies of summer.
Here's to a summer of endless opportunities to "Live in the sunshine. Swim in the sea. Drink in the wild air." This life is such a precious gift. Let's unwrap it this summer with a time-out to have some fun!
