A Summer Wish

It is a busy time of year as schools wind down and people are getting ready for summer days.  There is a certain level of hustle and stress that comes along with this shift in the seasons. I was feeling the intensity of this bustle last week and was surprised when a poem I had not thought of for years, flashed into my mind. I was excited to share it with you and see if it maybe we can set the summer stage. 

Let's see what you think.... it is by Saskia Davis and it called....

The Symptoms of Inner Peace

A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than from fear based on past experiences.

An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.

A loss of interest in judging self.

A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others. 

A loss of ability to worry. 

Frequent,  overwhelming episodes of appreciation. 

Contented feeling of connectedness with other and nature. 

Frequent attacks of smiling through the heart.

Increasing susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the overwhelming urge to extend it. 

An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than to manipulate them to make them happen. 

Here is to Wholeness and Inner Peace!.... a couple cornerstones of the Joy I am seeking to create in my life.... What are the cornerstones you will create your summer with? Your everyday experience?
