slow down
waking up to sunshine

Slow down and witness
The silence beyond the words.
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.

  14. Excellent Advice Val, indeed, I think lately I have slowed down a lot…. Nothing like slipping into meditation, be it with closed eyes, or walking, or crafting… Allowing the mind to rest from thinking other than doing that task you are doing, be it breathing or applying paint to a brush….
    Loved your poem
    Sending love and Gratitude for your wisdom ❤
