saying "yes" to this moment

 

Updated October 10: Registration is now closed.

Come along and join me for 10 days of saying YES to this moment.

This FREE online adventure begins October 1. Each day you'll receive an email from me in your inbox that will be a note from my heart to you. The email will include one of the ways I practice being present in my day-to-day life and an invitation for you to practice "saying yes to this moment" with a prompt each day. 

My intention is to invite you to open yourself up to the beauty and the realness and the joy that surround you each day.

A little more about Yes, This 

Each morning, when I sit with my cup of coffee and toast and begin to curate the messages, inspiration, true stories, and good things I'll be sharing over on Pinterest and on my blog that day, I think about you over in your corner beginning your day and I wonder what stories you might need to read to remind you that you're not alone.

Of course, the reality is that some of my mornings look more like me sitting in the middle of my bed with my daughter playing an ABC game on the iPad and toast crumbs everywhere and our dog resting her head against the bed hoping for a snack. The laundry is in a large pile in the hallway waiting and my to-do list seems to grow by the minute. 

And even in the midst of the messy reality of the everyday, I try to find that space to take a deep breath and see the beauty of this moment. The beauty of just being right here with the rain tapping on the roof and the smell of Earl Grey tea and the look in my daughter's eyes when she says, "I think it's cuddle time." 

But it's taken me a lot of practice to create space to see the beauty of this moment.

So I'm inviting you to come along for a deep dive into noticing that beauty as I share some of my favorite "being present" practices that help me say YES to this moment.

A Community of Yes

My hope is that we will even form a community of those of us saying "Yes, This" each day. Each day you'll be invited to share your response to that day's prompt through Instagram and Pinterest using the hashtag #yestothismoment so we can find one another.

Instagram :: If the post inspires you to capture the beauty and joy in your world through your camera lens, especially your cell phone, we’ll be connecting using the hashtag #yestothismoment.

Pinterest :: You might even want to make a "Yes, This" board with images, quotes, and other good things that are inspiring you. Tag your pins #yestothismoment so they will show up in searches. 

Join In

This is your invitation to come along and begin to trust that you're not alone as you experience the beauty and the hard stuff and the joy that is part of each day. There will be a community of like-minded spirits practicing alongside you.

It is going to be good.

Thank you for this! I've been needing a positive encouragement!

I am really looking forward to this. But I don't have a Smart Phone, so I cannot use Instagram. And I really don't like Pinterest. I usually take pictures with my dumb phone and text them to Twitter, or upload regular camera pics at the computer. Can I tweet with the hashtag #yestothismoment?

The interwebs ate my comment...?
I'll try again: I was thinking about you and the magical time I had at the retreat almost a year ago. Several times this last week the thoughts bubbled up; and then this morning I log onto my Pinterest, and in the first line of pins I see this post. How could I say anything but a resounding YES to this invitation? ... and 'thank you' in advance, too!
