What if letting go
Became our second nature
Find your Middle Ground


Find your Middle Ground is about stepping away from stressful days and anxious minds, and taking time to pause… again and again. Like a revolving door of awareness. We recognize a current state or thought, are able to let it go, and keep coming back to it.

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.

  2. What kind of world is it around us? Your words point out:
    “Too much doing and thinking disconnects us from our sense of “being””.
    No wonder many of us wonder why we feel disconnected.
    great post Val!

  3. Our natural state is always peace and freedom, it’s that crazy mind that gets in the way! 🙏🏻


  4. You are so right, Val, in that the pace of today’s world is so fast that it is tough to remain mindful. Even within my own world (in my home) I clock watch due to scheduled events that must take place for my cats. I’ve recognized this and so do my best in between those scheduled events not to look at the clock to just “flow”. Beautiful post and I thank you for the reminder to stay within our middle ground. Bless you! 🌹


  5. Always a joy to feel the peace and contentment here, Val — thank you so much.


  6. “Let ….Go” is my meditation mantra. Helps every time. xo


  7. Always you hit the nail on its head Val.. Far too many are too busy ‘Doing’ to take pause and find their inner peace.. When we do, and we allow ourselves space to Breatheeeee…. It then becomes second nature to take time out…
    Always a pleasure to pause and stop within your breathing space here Val.. ❤
    Love and Blessings ❤

  8. We would be a lot happier if it were our second nature.


  9. Val, Bless you for this post. I’ve been getting hit so hard and so fast that I’m unable to even take a breath lately before the next crisis unfolds. These are the times especially that my camera comes in to play, giving me back my Middle Ground so to speak. When exhaustion, grief, and stress are present and the ground falls out from under my feet, it is very difficult to maintain Calm. To gain it back, Mother is always there for me. 🌹🌹🌹
