a new day

February 9, 2009 at 3:22 am 2 comments

Are you willing to forgive yourself when you act unconsciously? We are human, so we are going to mess up. We are always in the process of becoming more conscious. During our blind moments, we fall back into our default and our default is just that: faulty! It takes consistent, vigilant, willing effort to become more aware.

PRACTICE reflecting at night before you sleep. Be gentle with yourself and bring your attention to what flowed during the day, the times when you were present and connected, being the way you want to be with your children. Then, in the morning, set your compass, so to speak. Think about what matters most to you for the day and consciously set your intention, just like at the beginning of a yoga practice.

Our defaults will always be there. And, we can be more than that. Every day is a new day.
