The day was marked by ease and grace. I am in travel mode, on the road to a medical convention to share the wonders of Good Clean Love. These travel days can be stressful with so many details and unknowns mingling together; I have had many days, when what should have been easy was incredibly challenging, and other days like today, when things are so easy, that it seems just my presence is enough to make things click.
Moments of ease and grace are more common than we think, but today it was my 12 year old daughter Emma who reminded me in the elevator on the way up to our room, what a perfect day it was. Her older sister asked her why? And she said, “Well nothing went wrong.” And in fact, just her mentioning it gave us pause to consider all that went right.
We were able to set up the booth despite missing the hall closing time, we found a great little Mexican place for dinner, and we got free parking at the hotel because they didn’t have my suite available. It just kept being easy.
If happiness is indeed the purpose of life then realizing that it is in our midst is the key. Taking the time to notice when it is working in our life and relationships is all that it takes to re-focus our mind and feel grateful for what is working. What we focus on multiplies, so learning to recognize and acknowledge the small victories, the way things just happen exactly as they needed to, even before we are aware of it, is a focus that creates contentment.

We believe we are making it better by shielding ourselves from our own pain. This is a fool’s errand, for the pain we refuse to feel and acknowledge doesn’t dissipate from our lacking attention, but rather collects in our heart center with a weightiness that we often cannot name or discern. So fearful are we, of the potential of a broken heart, that we inadvertently refuse to open our hearts at all.
