Come rest here a while
Notice life’s intricacies
Find your Middle Ground


Find your Middle Ground is about stepping away from stressful days and anxious minds, and taking time to pause.

When we are mindful of the present moment and simply allow it to be, we open a door to our natural state of being – accepting, loving, peaceful, kind and content. Most of us are so distracted and moving so fast that we get caught up in the world of “doing” or worrying about what we should be doing next.
Too much doing and thinking disconnects us from our sense of “being”and who we really are.

I write about finding this place of connection, contentment and peace in the highs and lows of life. I call it our Middle Ground.

  4. Wonderful reminder, Val.

    When we accept the “what is” and allow it to be as it is . . . we stop struggling with the current of life and enter its flow.

    So true, Val. It takes practice, but we have to let the madness in our heads walk on by.
