Zen Zone

When I first moved out of Denver and in with my brother on the outskirts of Broomfield, I was one foot out the door ready to get back into the city. Now, here I am 9 months later, and I couldn’t be happier to be out of the city and into the quietness. With the Dreamer / Doer Headquarters in the heart of the RiNo district in downtown Denver, I still get my fix of the city, but now I have much more balance than I ever realized that I needed.

My #ZenZone where I start each day with gratitude.

I’ve spent a lot of time in the quiet of my mind, away from the distractions of every day life. And in that time, I get closer and closer to my true self, dreaming about what my soul wants to be doing and where I want to be. In those thoughts, I realize that I am right where I want to be, doing what I want to do. And I wouldn’t want to have it any other way.

Even through the anxieties of life, I wouldn’t want to change anything. In this time of the unknown, I find grace, patience, strength, courage. I wouldn’t have this reflection if I wasn’t out here living where I live.

My lesson learned through this is to find happiness right where you are. Be grateful with what you have. When we can see the gifts in everything around us, the world opens up to a brighter space with endless possibilities.  It’s when we are so stuck in our own ways with our nose to the ground and in our daily routine that we don’t look up and see what’s in front of us and around us and within us.

We have to take the time to see this in the quiet and to be still.
