Day 37: and everything is going to the beat…

I am moving through this mala, this 108 days of my life, my work and my relationships to a certain beat. It’s steady, rhythmic – I stop listening now and again, but it’s always there, woven through and under and around everything that I do, and just when I need it, someone or something brings me back in step.

In spite of everything that’s changing right now, everything that is hanging in the balance, everything that is yet undefined – I feel grounded. Like a song I know by heart, I seem to know where this is going. Like a refrain, a routine and a mantra bring you back to your purpose – often just a reminder to breathe, and you melt back into your life. Who am I? Right now? In this pose? In this moment? While I’m evolving as I move forward, and I am excited about the turns my life is taking, I have to remember to be. here. now.  In so doing, I am always the most current version of myself, never overreaching, trusting that I’ll be provided with what I need, when I need it, right on time.

Smile, be happy!

"Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it." — Elizabeth Gilbert
