is there beauty in transitions?

I believe there’s beauty in transitions. The hard part is appreciating each step.

Learning, and understanding may be gained by looking back.

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards. Søren Kierkegaard

slow down

it’s a reminder – another way to say it practice pausing

what does it look like to practice everyday?

everything is practice – Periander

Everyday I have an opportunity to practice. For me it’s learning a language, practicing yoga, showing up in my painting studio or simply learning how to practice pausing.

I need to keep in mind what the definition of practice is – practice means,  training, rehearsal, repetition.

The question, what does it look like to practice everyday? The answer has to be show up, even when I don’t feel like it. I’m a practitioner.

hope along the path
