He says that we should strive for imbalance - intentionally shift our lives toward those moments and activities that bring us joy and strength.
He calls this intentional imbalancing "catch and cradle."
By catching, we're noticing the moments in life that strengthen us, and intentionally "catching" them, holding them, noticing them.
By cradling, it's like we're paying very close attention to the moments, like you would when you cradle a small baby. We're concentrating on, accepting, cherishing, and nurturing those moments of strength.
I loved this idea. So, in my search for imbalance and for strong moments several weeks ago, I went for a walk. It was a beautiful fall day, and I brought my camera to help me catch and cradle the fall beauty.
I started to see leaves all over the place that were "caught" - by cobwebs or crevices in trees or by magic, it seemed.
Blessings to you as you catch and cradle moments, days, weeks this fall.
