#BrandsWeLove 💛💛 “There is a collective experience taking place in the world; and yet, each individual experience is unique. There is an overwhelming range of emotions to feel—grief, gratitude, fear, and hope—and yet, each one will take time to process. There is a pull to reflect on our routines of the past and to consider the future, and yet, the only place to truly be, is in the present.
Often, being present can simply be a practice of noticing—paying attention to waves of emotions, taking in each day as it comes. It is the act of mindful observation. It is reaching out to loved ones and taking time to connect. It is practicing gratitude for the things that we do have. It is listening, and offering genuine empathy. It is acknowledging and making peace with what we do, and do not, have control over. It is appreciating small moments, like morning coffee or an afternoon walk. It is, simply put, slow living.” — @cuyana
