Reach Beyond

What is ‘Reach Beyond’?   Reach Beyond is an invitation to go further than that place of settling, for any part of your life that is not leading you towards your best health.  Maybe it shows up in your energy level, the amount of patience you have with your loved ones, the way you carry your body, or perhaps the fit of your jeans.  In each moment, each choice, we have the capacity within us to reach beyond.  One way of doing so is to notice those moments, catching the precise breath when the choice is made.  The first step is being able to be aware of those moments when they happen.

Quote for Now:

” This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are.”    ~ Pema Chodron

As I was starting to write this newsletter, my kids were calling to me to come and sit in the grass with them and eat some watermelon.  My immediate response was, ‘hang on, I’m in the middle of something’.  And then the irony hit me, I was being invited to be part of a moment, to enjoy an experience instead of finishing a newsletter on mindfulness- hmmm- there it was.  I hit ‘save’ on the computer and enjoyed the most incredible snack of cold watermelon on the green lawn, in the shade of the bamboo.
