Awakening

This past Christmas, my husband gave me The Book of Awakening, by Mark Nepo.  Have you read it?  The tagline, "Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have" got me.  Designed as a companion, this books offers a series of daily reflections and help your soul's journey.  Yes, it's deep.  But, deep can be good.  It's thoughtful words of wisdom helped guide me through challanging days and although I had great intentions of daily reading, I only made it to March.  So, I'm going to start sharing things from the book - quotes and otherwise, because everybody needs to be reminded every once and a while....to be the best person we can be.  It all starts with you...."I say yes when I mean no and the wrinkle grows." - Naomi Shihab Nye
"But long enough on the journey, and we come to realize and even deeper aspect of all this: that those who truly love us will never knowingly ask us to be other than we are."  - Mark Nepo


(Take this all with a grain of salt...I'm writing this as I type in pjs and fuzzy pink slippers.  How's that for reflection?  Baby steps....)
