New year, new time to remember the 4 Agreements as you move into the year with grace, with respect for the Ancestors, with respect for all living things. The 4 Agreements that can be made with yourself, with others in ways to heighten your best life, your best steps, one step at at time while remembering those three things as you take your breath… 1. is it necessary, 2. is it true, 3. will it make things or people feel better to hear it.
Reactions, feelings within often have a large impact on others… Remembering to take a breath, to revisit your agreements, taking a pause while turning reactions into actions with a moment of breath may serve each of us well. Words, actions, behaviors, feelings are unique to each individual we meet… one journey is not the same as another. Most folks are living their lives in their lanes of survival, of desire, of wishes and hopes unique to their circumstances or a result of their choices. The old saying, “each to their own” often rings true.
The 4 Agreements may serve each of us well as we strive for excellence in our lives, in our breath, in gratitude.
The fire is burning, the embers are hot. May this day find you with all you need within you to be your best self while sending thoughts of warmth to those in the cold states, hope to those who are going through it, up against it, or walking past it.
And so it is!
