In case you're wondering why I'm holding Danish and American flags, I'm not the new ambassador to Denmark. It's bc my husband is Danish and we just celebrated my birthday. It's the Danish tradition to have a bunch of flags on your birthday so here I am with my two homes flying high. Yesterday I saw a rainbow over the whole city and then after raining the whole morning the sun came out to make a beautiful afternoon. But the best blessing is that my Mom and Dad, our homes and businesses are ok after with the storm 💗 @miamilifecenter even has power and AC! Come practice and charge your phone 😊
There is so much to be thankful for everyday. There is so much to celebrate about this very moment. Look for the small moments of joy and if you can, be the joy. Every day in the grand tally of all that happens every casual smile and act of goodwill makes a difference. No matter how much negativity you think is happening, the arc of humanity will always be towards goodness and hope. No matter what catastrophe strikes, whether personal, environmental or political, there is light shining even when we cannot see it. How many unsung heroes are there in every day. Sometimes I get a view of the whole world, all of humanity, and I get sense of how connected we all really are and how sensitive we all are to eachother. Even if you don't see it, you feel it. When you stand next to someone in pain, you sense their pain even if you don't hear them crying. Maybe this is why we disconnect from our bodies so often? If you drop into your own body have to feel it all, your happiness, your pain, and the happiness and pain of everyone around you. Empathy lives in the heart, just around the corner from love and joy. Let is all in. Cherish each day. Celebrate every ray of sunshine. Be nice, to everyone, all the time (or as much of the time as you can). Be strong, not so you can bully people around or compete with anyone, but be strong so you lift others up with your rising tide. This is the yogi life. Live it with your whole heart and soul every moment of every day.
