(Heart, lift your wings of joy, print available here)
There is snow here in Denmark, and as always it reminds me to quiet my soul, it´s like a hush made by nature, reminding me of the importance of inward, heart-filled moments at this darkest time of year.
Right now I have two mindsets struggling to take up space in my life: One constantly reminds me of a to-do-list that only keeps growing. We just moved house about a month ago. And since the move we have all been ill in turns, and still are. My camera stopped working, my computer needs fixing and on top of that this is the busiest time of year for me, workwise. Oh, and did I mention that my workspace is still in boxes? From that level life seems like a no-win-situation.
Then, there is the other mindset, the snow-hushed one: It gently tells me that all those things are just details in the bigger picture of life, and that the true importance lies somewhere else: In every day finding back my vision for what I want to do wiht my life. Even if I don´t have time to do it all now. In taking the time to decorate envelopes with hearts for my webshop, simply because I can and love to do it.
It whispers that it may be wise to take that 10 min´s walk through the snow, trusting that life will grant me enough time to manage the important things from my list. It tells me a tale of how tending to my inner state whilst doing the best I can witht the time I have got is not only good enough, but very wise.
And if my first mindset is not yet convinced, it frankly suggests that this way will even be more efficient in the long run. The most enjoyable mindset? Nr 2, clearly. So, today I choose to trust that of course I have enough time to live my life with joy! Sending you smiles out there, and now on with my to-do-list!
