DAY 40

Hooray!!!! Day 40 in the "40 Days of Change" has arrived.

I know this last week I didn't post any inspirational quotes. It was getting difficult towards the end to get them on here but I was still receiving them everyday from my yoga instructor.

I must admit that I was a little skeptical going into the 40 days - Would I be able to do it? Would i feel any different at the end of it?

If you have been following along with me you know that we were asked to set intentions for our journey on the "40 Days". The intentions were to be simple and do able.

Mine was to walk my dog everyday and enjoy living in the moment!!!

I did walk my almost everyday and if I didn't walk him then my husband did. The biggest part of that intention for me was the living in the moment. Over the last few months I had been struggling with this...and when I started the 40 days I thought "wow, that is a long time to focus on the now" but you know what - the 40 days went by so quickly and I enjoyed every single day!!!!

I lived, breathed, loved, and enjoyed each moment that I experienced - even if it was a sad time or stressful situation I still tried to embrace that exact moment.

I do feel a "change" occured during this time and it feels really good. The daily inspiration's I received helped in this process and it was awesome to receive a little bit of positivity each day - I will miss it.

Now the challenge is to keep this everyday for the rest of my life :)

Thank you to all of you who participated or followed along with me - I hope you enjoyed the the "40 Days of Change" as much as I did.

Here is the inspiration for the 40th day

Sunday's Inspiration - 40th Day!!!

"There is nothing to practice.
To know yourself, be yourself.
To be yourself, stop imagining yourself to be this or that.
Just be. Let your true nature emerge. Don't disturb your mind with seeking.
When I see I am nothing, that is wisdom.
When I see I am everything, that is love. My life is a movement between these two.

-Nisargdatta Maharaj

You are enough.
BE your brilliance!"


Wow - I love this final quote!

Peace and Love
