I confess to finding myself close to the edge a few times over the past two years.
At times that has been the edge of great joy and adventure…..but I have also found myself standing at the edge of the deepest despair I have ever experienced before.
I am left with a sense of gratefulness for the juxtaposition and I am grateful for the generous and open hearts I have in my life.
I have discovered a love of taking photos (even if I am not especially good at it) Looking closely and mindfully at anything and everything with new eyes and finding the beauty in peeling paint.
The concept of taking one day at a time has become a very important one for me. I have taken it a step further by committing to one state of emotional grace for each day. That is what this post is about (you may have been wondering)
My self imposed task is to post one photo and one Just-for-this-day intention everyday.
Looking after our emotional and cognitive health, or what can be termed, emotional hygiene, is completely forgotten or buried beneath our busy daily lives. And lets face it, Facebook for many of us is not about helping our emotional health.
So, this is me, aiming for emotional hygiene. Committing to sharing it with you (or not) will help me to stay on task with purpose and intent. Can I do it for 365 days? How will my life be different in one year?……….My Year Of Grace.
Just For This Day………….I will remember to smile for no reason.
