Marvelous Moment on Monday

I sit here preparing for my day…my Monday.  Thinking of  all I will need to accomplish for this day.  All that needs to be spaced out for the week.  Knowing I need to probably get going, but not feeling pressured….not feeling stressed….not feeling guilty in just sitting.  Just breathing.  I have completed my morning prayers…my offerings.  I have moved my body to wake up.  

I sit here with my tea looking around me and smile.

And listen.

I hear the fish jump in their tank.
I hear the filter pushing the water through the tank.
I hear my laundry machine in its spin cycle.
I hear the house settling.
I hear my heart beating.

And I wait…..

I wait to hear HIS VOICE!

And that is why I am not in a hurry to move from this spot.   I know He still has stuff to share with me….and all the “to do’s” can wait.  I know all will be accomplished with peace and proper timing if I continue to WAIT, BE STILL, AND LISTEN to what He has to share with me on this morning, for this day, for this week, for anything…..I WILL WAIT!  Because HIS WILL is much more peaceful and enjoyable to do than MY WILL.

Have you stopped to listen yet this morning, this day!?

How do you ensure you take time to listen to God’s voice in the middle of mind clutter, life activities, and world chaos?!

I would love to hear your thoughts!

Have a marvelous Monday!
blessings and hugs,

PS…..today’s book….I absolutely love Dr. Gottfried.  She is passionate about women’s health….true health…..she is continually learning and growing and willing to share……I can relate to her on so many levels.  her books are profound in understanding just how unique a woman’s body is and how we need to take care of it nutritionally, physically, mentally, spiritually.   It is not only a must read for women, single, married, moms or not…..but I think even young ladies.  Maybe even mom’s read it first and see what areas of the book you would want your preteen read, and then what areas as they enter into their teen years….and then young adulthood.  The more prepared our young girls are to take charge of their whole health at a young age….the better they will live the life of abundance and thrive!  (The book I have above is great about understanding the cycle of hormones, and her other book THE HORMONE CURE is a great read as well!)

Day 16: Mind Musings on Monday

It is Monday…

We so often use Mondays to punish ourselves of deciding…ugh…I was terrible this weekend with not exercising…or drinking too much…or eating too late…or sleeping in…or not enough sleep…or not enough prayer….then we resolve to be too harsh on Mondays…

Isn’t this quote from Joyce Meyer so perfect…it doesn’t matter if
you are a mom or not….it is a fabulous thing to reflect on…
WE ARE NOT PERFECT…HE IS!!!

Instead I want you to view Monday as a day to…

Muse…

Meditate…

Marvel…

be Mindful…

Thus today….think of how you can respect yourself…love yourself…and not beat yourself up for be amazingly human and enjoying this amazing life we have been given.

If you need some extra encouragement…extra motivation on this Monday check out a great interview with Molly Galbraith on Mind Body Musings.  Molly talks about truly respecting the body you are in.  I love how she shares about she is curvy and how she had to learn to truly respect that and love it.  She has friends who lean out in the legs naturally….she leans out in the waist naturally…some lean out in the arms more….etc….but the point is to love the body you are in, even when you are wanting to make changes to still love it right now!!!

You can also find out more about Molly at GIRLS GONE STRONG…this is one of my favorite websites to read and learn from….

GO FORTH AND LOVE THYSELF!!!

Hugs and prayers always,
~Kelly
