Did You Connect Today?
Making good connections matters to your health and well being! Finding that sense of calm and peace among the craziness and chaos. Being mindful and finding gratitude. Pause, Breathe & Connect!
I have been learning to go by how I feel on a daily basis! I have been trying to find that balance between my rational self and emotional self. Thinking of a crisis as a potential opportunity and not just come out reacting. Feeling stuck and wanting to escape. Finding that connection among the conflict and reaching out in a good and healthy way!

I still continue to struggle between being in the present moment and hiding my head under the covers not wanting to deal with it! I do think it is a good idea to step away or step back at times instead of just reacting to a situation. Taking a step back creates a little distance from the situation, especially if there is confrontation and conflict. I know it gives me a chance to respond in a manner that is not emotionally charged.
In connecting with yourself from within you are able to listen to your mind, heart and soul! Being true to yourself matters. You have that connection instead of that disconnection! I feel a little more receptive to what is going on around me when I am tuned in and connected from the inside out.
The best part is when you do not feel like you have to be on the defensive all the time! You can be on the receiving side as well as the giving side. You are able to be receptive and open to experiences. Reconnecting with your SENSE OF SELF feels GREAT!
