Summer Heat…. July 24, 2011

Little Sahara

With the mercury rising and most people up in arms because of the heat, what opportunity can you find instead of an obstacle when going about our daily routine.  I have to admit I’ve made many a joke when talking about the increasingly rising temp…i.e. “Another naked day in NYC!”.  But I really do LOVE the heat!! I have found that it slows me down.  I stroll instead of walk the mock speeds I tend to do.  Which in turn gives me the opportunity to look up and look out (that phrase I love so much) a bit more than I usually do.  I get some vitamin D and feel a bit more apart of the world.  And isn’t it being part of something, what it’s all about?

Instead of thinking, “This heat is gross!” You can think, “How fun to wear shorts!” or “I’m so glad we have…what ever kind of seasons you have!”.  Then I start to wonder where else I may be seeing an obstacle instead of an opportunity? Work or relationships?  So, where might you being seeing obstacles? What can this luxurious heat be teaching you other than, “It’s really nice to go naked!”?

Enjoy!

Live Like You’re On Vacation! July 21, 2011

I have a theory… When we are on vacation we are more open and tend to meet more people.  We hear about summer romances and vacation flings or better yet we meet a new partner!  What would happen if we lived our whole life like we were on vacation?  Now I know what you’re thinking….that we have our work and daily routines but what would happen if we  took a breath and slowed down a bit.  Become more conscious about our day???

When we are on vacation we tend to slow down and even breathe a bit more slowly.  We look up and out to see what’s around us. We might even get off the bus or out of the car to let’s say… look at a park that we might simply drive by on our regular travels.  But mostly we tend to talk more with people who we may just pass by…  We’ll talk to the waiter a bit more or the person sitting next to us on the beach. How are you different when you are on vacation?  What would happen if we looked up and looked out in our daily routine?  Breathe a bit slower? Smile??? Be open to new experiences? You might just be surprised at what and who might just show up. Worst case scenario  is that You might just show up in a more present way.  And how exciting is that!!
