Bliss Diary – June 11, 2015

None of us have enough time, yet we all have the same amount. It is time that we quit whining about this and accept that we can’t get it all done and just do what we can. — Maria Cilley

Affirmation/Intention: I have plenty of time and energy to do everything I desire to do. I rest in each moment with presence, love and gratitude.

Nutrition:
7:30 am
at tea (coconut milk, ghee, collagen, cacao, peppermint, stevia)
12:00 pm Salad bars (as my son calls them) – mixed greens, avocado, coconut aminos, lemon all mashed up with my hands and then wrapped in nori sheets
1:30 pm 3 coconut macaroons + lemonade (water, lemons, stevia)
3:45 pm Iced maca coco shake
6:45 pm Salmon w/chard + spinach with some cucumbers and lentil dip

Yummy Toddler Shake:
1/2 banana
1/4 c. coconut milk
1/4 c. water
2 tsp carob
2 tsp flax seeds
1 tsp. maca
1/2 scoop of collagen
pinch of cinnamon + pinch of ground vanilla
Blend + Enjoy!

Movement:
* 25 min — 5 min walk + 20 min run (ok, probably more like jog) pushing E in the stroller with our dog, Zeus, on a leash + a slight drizzle = adventure. 🙂

* 45 min walk/adventure w/E at one of my favorite spots (see pic below)
* 60 minute adventure walking to park and our local music festival

Meditation: 15 minutes 

Here are the I am a healthy Goddess affirmations to help you optimize even more. 🙂


Growth Opportunity:
Home organization. Being organized hasn’t come naturally for me. It’s an area that I’ve had to cultivate over the years. I’m really proud with my progress. I tend towards more of the minimalist lifestyle because I like the spaciousness and simplicity. It’s also easier to clean and organize when you don’t have a lot of stuff. 🙂 I am creating new systems to optimize cleaning our home, and organizing our stuff and keeping it all zen-like.

These are a few resources I am working with:
Sink Reflections by Maria Cilley
A Mother’s Rule of Life by Holly Pierlot
The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

Part of my practice is to appreciate what does get done! It can be easy to look around the house and see all the things that still need work. I’ve found this especially true with a super curious toddler.. 😉

“Life is too short to dwell on what doesn’t get done. Celebrate what you do every day and start fresh each morning.” ~ Maria Cilley (aka Flylady)

Mind/Heart Goodness:
On my run this morning I was thinking about my beautiful friend, Jane, as I was saying Hi to everyone we passed. She has a blog called: Random Acquaintances. I read some of her posts yesterday and love the beauty, connection and stories she shares.

It inspired me to think about the sweetness in all of our encounters. In my meditation practice I got tears thinking about how much I desire this connection. I love to live in the deep waters as my friend and beloved mentor, Catherine Ingram, says. I talked with her about this when she visited a few months ago.  She is beauty, presence and truth embodied.

I think this is one of the reasons I love to write/blog…to swim and live in the deep waters and connect with others that want the same. Writing helps me feel and live deeper. I want to do everything I can to be, feel and experience the bliss of being alive. This is one of my greatest joys.

Gratitude + Appreciation: I am grateful that my husband cleaned up the kitchen today. #daymaker I am grateful that I saw some friends at the park/festival today. It’s always nice to connect with awesome mamas. I am grateful for Whole Foods. I am grateful for all the years I’ve experimented in the kitchen. I am grateful for my meditation practice. I am grateful for my parents for bringing me into the world. I am grateful for my commitment to living an authentic life. #grateful #blessed
