Mocha Angels 365. Day 26.

“Life can only be found in the present moment. When you look at the beautiful blue sky, where is it? In the present moment.

In order to not miss the beautiful blue sky, you have to go back to the present moment. Because it is in that moment that you get in touch with the beautiful blue sky, the beautiful rivers, the beautiful trees…

Everything wonderful, everything refreshing, happens in the present moment. Therefore, running to the future, or getting lost in the past, you miss life. Breathing in and out gets you back to the present moment where you have an appointment with life.”

– Thich Nhat Hahn, The Art of Mindful Living

Mocha Angels 365. Day 343.

Two work-related concussions fourteen months apart is enough to get anyone thinking, “Hmmmmm…..what is the Universe trying to tell me?” Clearly I need to listen. I hit my head on Friday and I’m home for now. I am totally open to lessons today. I am fortunate to have people around me who all said, “Sometimes the Universe literally bonks us in the head to wake us up and pay attention. What is going on with you?”

I have some clues and I am working on them. Let me know how the Universe bonked you on the head to wake you up.
