Light beyond the dark
Forever thrives in nature
And shines in us all

Find your Middle Ground is about stepping away from stressful days and anxious minds, and taking time to connect to the light that shines within us.

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. We have annual passes to Kennedy Space Center . . . so we went yesterday for the Solar Eclipse Day festivities.

    The most amazing thing to me was how much cooler it was when the eclipse was at its peak (about 83% coverage by the moon) ~> the temperature dropped from the 90’s into the 80’s. Aah . . . that’s better!

  5. So true. Materialistic distractions are a big concern for many of us, and we do realize it too…that just we chose not to accept it and work on the root cause.

    Have a blessed rest of your life, Val 🙂
