“Never be afraid to offer a smile; sure the risk is that a few foolish people may misinterpret your kindness as weakness, but the sweet reward is that as you make new friends and encourage others, the foolish will learn the error of their ways because you did at least show them your teeth.” ? Johnnie Dent Jr. How do you feel when you start a new creative project? Do you have a habit of starting things, working on them for a while and then not completing them? It takes conscious action to continue through all the steps to complete projects. If you stop mid-way through it is a waste of your time, energy and valuable resources. A quick outline will help and point you in the right direction and a simple budget will help guide your use of resources. Take your task list and break it into smaller task pieces and focus on one part at a time. Join us as we explore how to keep your energy and enthusiasm high as you step forward in the creation process and also finish something each day.
Mindful Space to Pause(tm)
Friday at 2 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
Mindful Space to Pause(tm) focuses on savoring moments and balancing daily busy-ness. The show brings together a powerful gift of practicing, discovering time, space and focus to be present. It is like a quick retreat from wherever you are and whatever you are doing. We explore common words, language and how images feel like an oasis of calm when you pause and take a closer look. Awaken to the possibilities when you pay attention, breathe, pause, clearly listen to your own internal GPS system and set your intentions to align your inner thoughts and your word choices with your energetic frequency. Being present with every moment might seem as elusive as chasing the clock to find extra time within an already overcommitted 24-hour schedule. Once thought seeds have been planted and have taken root in your daily habit patterns, you can pause with a sense of discovery, curiosity and experience moments to play, to be thankful, to reflect and be wonder-filled in awe.
d Lee is an author, talk show host and businesswoman infusing her life with positivity. From a very early age, she spent time in her father’s garden where she soaked up the positive beats of this busy environment. She learned the importance of systems, how to explore present moments with all of her senses, embrace inspiring possibilities, and take empowered action with an “I can do this” choice. This perspective has given her greater resilience, creativity, and joy in her life.
As an avid photographer, d Lee has spent years and countless hours walking the streets of her community capturing moments of life and time through her lens. Through this process, and through an immersion in Reiki, she naturally began living with more presence and awareness. Over time she recognized the value of being able to immerse herself in present moment awareness.
d Lee is authoring a series of mindful practice journals that help build habits of being present. She is populating the books with beautiful images from her photography collection, inspiring quotes on the focused topics and coloring pages to unleash your own colorful creativity. Learn how to embrace a disciplined practice focus such as pausing and taking time to appreciate visual gifts from nature. As the habit becomes part of each day, it will transform your life. Be wherever you are, doing whatever you are doing and know each pause you take brings with it many benefits.
