the song of simple

I'm listening better these days, tilting an ear to the quiet spaces of life, asking when and where I can align more truly with what brings nourishment. Peace. Contentment. Healing.

listen well: hear & honor the cadence of you / allow harmony to sing you back to center / find your flow (the one all your own) / whirl & twirl to the drumming beat of your wild phoenix heart
— The Phoenix Soul: Rhythm

I'm tired of living life out-of-step with my internal beat . . . the natural harmony that flows from allowing instead of resisting our life-rhythms. But listening deeply again . . . it's helping, bringing me back to center.

How about you, friend? Are you blissfully in tune with your life, moving through your days with holy ease? If not, why not?

We're wrapping up Rhythm month here at The Phoenix Soul. What I'm carrying with me--the music I'm beginning to hear in my own life? The song of simple. Fried egg sandwiches on pretty plates, savored on the front step with birdsong and breeze. Creekside walks. Peering through my kitchen's lace curtain as morning light peeks over the neighbor's roof. Simple. Sweet. Enough.

Life in full color. Because to-do lists are so much more joyfull that way. Behind the scenes: TPS is always a dance between digital & blessedly messily vibrantly handmade.

Gratitude and presence and ease are all connected. It is from a place of gratitude and presence that I am most able to honor my creativity through life’s constant inconsistencies.
