“Forests Edge” Photo by Mike Bizeau at http://www.naturehasnoboss.com

Many of us continue our path into 2019. We are on a journey of curiosity, inner exploration, trying on new ideas, committing to better behaviors, taking care of ourselves … and taking time out to nourish mind, body and spirit.

We see ahead clearly and then something comes along to bring doubt, temptation, discomfort or rejection.

So soon… Really?

The most significant lessons are unexpected. And they often come along just when we were hoping or counting on something else.

Let them be wake up calls rather than obstacles in your mind.

Be alert. Wake up.

The class of your life is in session.

Take time to pause and reflect on the real lesson waiting to be seen.

  5. Reblogged this on Shielagh and commented:
    Good morning! Let us wake up and remember today is another important opportunity to practice mindfulness and gratitude, patience and courage. Less reactivity and more humility. Val Boyko reminds us we’re still on our path. Namasté 🙏 Shielagh

  6. Great reminder, Val. Listening to Eckhart Tolle yesterday, I was reminded of the importance of not resisting what is happening now…lest you make it worse and fine the way out to be somewhat elusive. This post is a very nice addition! Thank you!🙏🏻

  9. From what I can feel and have been told by spiritual teachers, the energy coming through for 2019 is not waiting for those who are procrastinating. It’s coming in fast and furious and it’s time to step up in courage. Great post to remind us Val 🙏🏻

  10. Wise advice Val about them being wake up calls to manoeuvre over and around learning as we do so the skills to navigate our roads. No road is ever straight, they all have their ups and downs and curves.
    But learning to see what each bend teaches, shows us how rich our journey along our life’s travels has shown us.
    Just think if all we had was a straight road, with no surprises along the way, how bored we would soon be. 🙂 lol
    Much love my friend.. Take care of you. ❤


  11. while i enjoy the fair
    weather outings,
    i hope to be prepared
    for the bumpy road!
    may we all have
    adequate suspension 🙂
