Life With the Zoom Lens On - Do You Feel Stressed or Blessed?


I just wanted to say hello to everyone on our network and just do a little reminder post about feeling stressed and feeling blessed.

I think it is very important to remember that when we are feeling stressed to flip that around and acknowledge the stress, but also counter those sometimes overwhelming feelings with reminders of how blessed we actually are. The same thing goes for feeling too comfortable. It's important to also savor those moments, ground in gratitude, but also allow for more room to grow.

I had several of these moments these past few weeks. For me personally, I feel like we are trying to adapt to multiple levels of instability and it has become even more important to find or remember things that bring peace. One way I find quiet, peace and beauty is by taking pictures. I love roses. I hope you enjoy some of my photos of flowers and roses. There are more here: Maine Garden.

We are reminded to:

stop. pause. connect. rebalance. refocus. course correct. place energy in focused direction with meaning and purpose. create peace for your mind. body. soul. world. being. live peaceful.

One of my literature teachers had a rule. If I didn’t like an assigned author’s style, I could choose something else to read and report on, but only after I had read at least 1/3 of the book he had assigned. It did not take that long to embrace Elizabeth’s style in Percolate. At first, I was put off a bit by all the references to coffee. My bad. What was I expecting with a name like Percolate; oatmeal? Very quickly the metaphor started working for me.

More importantly, Elizabeth uses real life anecdotes of hers’, from her immediate family, extended family, friends and brief acquaintances, to show circumstances where being mindful and caring about others, can allow us to…
