attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity

It’s been a crazy week.

Today is my first day off in several weeks, and I find I’ve been neglecting my basic needs.
Sleeping. Eating healthy. Connecting with people. Yoga.

Attention is such a challenging thing to offer when our lives are constantly dinged by notifications in the literal and figurative sense.

I find myself far to often in conversations having a jump to reality moment where I realize I wasn’t listening to the last several things this person said. I kick myself for this! I get so frustrated with myself. But I’m noticing more and more that when i neglect attention to myself is the factor that leasts to neglecting attention to others.

Yoga is the one place where I feel secure to give my body mind and soul attention.

With gratitude for the means to the time and space, let’s make attention our intention.
Let’s turn inward, and level set. Let’s turn inward, and love ourselves first.

Then, we will be able to shine brighter, stand firmer on the ground… and offer the beautiful gift of attention to others.
