My necklace says BELOVED.... I’ve been thinking through this idea of identity lately. Where does my identity REALLY lie? I know the right answer is “in God.” But I find myself seeking it in so many other places. In being a mom, a wife, a coach, an outside the box Christian, in being quick, fit, kind, whatever. A million things. But I’d really like to understand what it means to have my ACTUAL identity rooted in God. I know beloved is part of that.
My spiritual director recommended making sure I have even 5 min of stillness to listen each day. That has been helping so much. So have deep breaths. When I find my brain caught up in a million other things - kids, social situations, daily grind, I find I’m not breathing lol. A deep breath is really centering and good for clearing your head.
So here’s to being a beloved beginner in the practice of meditation and breathing to find my identity in the right place lol! 🤷🏼♀️😍 #youhavetostartsomewhere 😏
How do you stay centered? I’d love your tips. Religious or not. ❤️
