It is no small feat to listen to one’s heart.  Sure, it’s easy in some instances, like last week’s pie {I knew it was what my heart needed…my body, maybe not…my heart, absolutely}.  But there are other occasions that leave one stalled.  When I stall, I try to keep my heart open and listen to the stories inside, I try to listen to my stories reflected in the words of others, I try to track where and when and how I feel joy.  I try to follow the breadcrumbs.

There is a path, there is a pattern, there is a rhythm.

Right now I’m listening and following any breadcrumbs laid before me.  Be assured there’s no great disruption in my life, just some reflecting and sorting of creative ideas.  I write about following breadcrumbs because it’s a metaphor used by Jessica in her meditation e-course {in which I’m currently participating and currently enjoying…immensely} and when she used it, it stuck with me.  And you know I like thinking about and living the small things.  The breadcrumbs.  The simple joys.  You know I love how the little stitch together to make the whole.  Yes.

Peace is every step.
~Thich Nhat Hanh~

I included this quote in my February newsletter, so for those of you who subscribe to my newsletter, I apologize for the crossover. But it’s good and it fits right now.  Peace is every step. I am stepping with you, breathing with you, resting with the questions and answers, following the breadcrumbs.

Sending a little love your way, m
