is like a river flowing.
She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination
prepared to be herself
and only herself ”
~ Maya Angelou
My hope is that every client finds this flow and strength and grace. Personally, my days are spent in front of a computer, in a gym hauling heavy weights and with my family washing dishes, cooking food and finding the presence to appreciate the gifts in front of me instead of focusing on the tasks incomplete. Life can feel mundane or tedious, but when we give our journey value and weight (as done in this poem) the day to day becomes more profound and hopefully more inspired.
Clients seek help with their physical body, it is necessary. Often that need for change is a metaphor for change in other areas of their life, and in an unspoken way, we know this. Recognizing that the body and mind and spirit are entwined offers a better understanding of the whole woman and the importance of change in her life. In honor of Maya Angelou, let’s see the beauty in our lives and find our harmony today arriving “without pretense” to our destinations.
