Sitting here trying to find the words to sufficiently express myself when I came across a post by @chelseakauai
that resonated deeply with me: “I read today that the chances of you being born are one in 400 trillion. And I just sat here and let that sink in and the more I thought about it the more unimaginably cool it all seemed!
To stand in the places you have been, to have seen that blooming flower, the perfect sunrise, bumped shoulders with a stranger turned best friend. To be right here. Right now. Caught in the rain or basking in sunshine. Knowing what you know and seeing what you’ve seen and loving who you love. The infinitesimal odds of it all leave me in awe.
So whatever is bothering you today, whatever seems too big or too small just think...we are unlikely occurrences, looking at other equally unlikely near miracles on a precious spinning round ball in an unfathomably large universe leading mathematically improbable existences”
Been focusing on working on myself lately: am I being kind, can I be more patient, can I respond with mindfulness, how much joy can I inspire, do my actions carry purpose, am I doing all I can to leave this world a better place, am I nourishing my relationship with compassion and love? This has led to an influx of opportunities and people over the past few months. I learning to be equally grateful to the people who come in and out of my life; the lessons learned from honoring and respecting each other’s journeys wherever that may be. Currently standing here with a heart full with gratitude and hope. What a gift it is to be alive. ❤️ Photo from this past weekend’s trip to Westcliffe with acquaintances turned into friends.
