I woke up with the thought that “Zen is now”….that peace is now.

I’ve found myself rushing around a bit lately…anxious to get from one appointment to the next….missing the flow of life and being driven by a schedule. I hate that feeling.

I think this happens to us all.

When I catch myself, I have to remind myself to breathe. Breathing slowly calms me down and reminds me that I need to take the time to center myself and get back to peace. (I’m also thankful for those friends who remind me to take a breath when I forget haha)

Peace can be found in taking a breath…taking a walk…painting…or any activity that pulls us out of our scheduled life. But then again washing dishes can be meditative. I think it just takes us being mindful of the moment and resisting the urge to constantly rush from one thing to the next. Waves remind me of this flow…water never rushes yet it always reaches the shore.
