50 Shades of Green

If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.

– Gail Sheehy

I moved to the east coast, from the southwest, just over two months ago. One thing that I stay in awe of is just how green it is here. I have lived in very green places before, but I have never appreciated how many shades of green there truly are. This past week I have really made it a point to notice all the variants while walking my dog.

As summer unfolds, I am excited about spending time outside. I can find ways to connect with nature, and be in the midst of the river of Life. When I make these connections it allows my perspective to be of joy and optimism. That is what I want my life to look like as I am in the middle of it. Joy. Optimism. In the lush world, plants can remind me of this simple idea.

Green can mean many different things, for some money, others envy, but for me green is life. Not only the life I have lived, but the life I am living today. How am I contributing today? What areas am I afraid to change? Where am I growing?

Affirmation Living life is what I am here to do. I use the world around me to remind me of my truth.

Call to Action Look at the last 3 questions at the end of this post. Can you honestly answer each one? Green is for me, but what will you use today to remind you to live? Please share with the CYLF family below.

  1. Being mindful of my breath…It feeds my body, my mind and my soul…As I breath it also gives life to things outside of me. What a blessing…
