Thank you for this day. I am refreshed and ready for the opportunities and challenges that await me.
Please help me to be more present with the people around me.
May I pause, and really smile at someone walking my way,
May I slow down enough to notice how green everything is thanks to recent rain.
I know I sometimes get impatient and rush around with all my to dos and general busy-ness…
Please help me to be still,
so that I can live this day to it’s fullest.
Thank You and
Being silent at times is very good for us. It calms our nervous systems down. Calms the mind. Soothes the soul. Helps us to connect to our higher power. After a busy day with my second graders I really need that time. If I get it, I sleep much better at night.
How can we fit in times to be silent and be still in our busy lives? Here are a few suggestions:
When you do emerge from your time of silence you will be much more refreshed and have more to give. You will be more centered and will sleep better at night.
