|Pool pattern, San Jose, Costa Rica, 2006|
As someone who strives to live in the present, it may seem contradictory that my daily practice is rich with patterns. Am I spontaneous? Often. Is my behavior predictable? Quite regularly, yes. Do I have patterns of operating that lead to success in my chosen endeavors? Sometimes. How about patterns that set me up for failure? Uh-huh; got those too.
I'm choosing to focus on the good stuff these days and selecting practices and behaviors that promote my health and well-being. One way that manifests for me is in listening more closely. Less internal chatter and talking allows for creating space for listening, both internally and externally.
What follows? A palatte of choices and a most stunning view!
