Waking Up

Have you ever driven along a stretch of road, and then suddenly realized that you don’t remember the last 5, 10 or even 15 minutes of the trip? You were on “auto-pilot”, while your mind wandered to other places and times.

It is in these awakening moments that we have the precious opportunity to  become still, look into ourselves, and begin to connect with our true selves.  We can shed the “should’s” and “could have’s” and “shouldn’t have’s”.  We can start to tap into our dreams, our passions and our desires and find what truly inspires us.  We awaken to our lives.
