{mindful Monday} Treading Water

“Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim.” ~ Tyler Knott Gregson

I stumbled upon this quote awhile back and it really stuck with me. Short and sweet. Sometimes we get stuck in life; going through the motions meaninglessly and with little joy because we take so much for granted and label too much as though it’s a chore after we have chosen it. We forget to pursue passion and we forget to truly live. This is your wakeup call. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath in. Breathe out. Wiggle a little. Reawaken yourself as a whole (mind, body and soul). Be present. Be grateful. Follow your heart. Fall back in love with your life. Do not forget your first love. Do whatever it is that makes your soul sing. Do not let routine replace passion. Never forget how truly capable you are. You are so capable.
