“Summertime and the livin’ is easy…”
Those 1934 lyrics are from the amazing opera, George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.
In the real world of today, truth is, the sentence often ends with ‘busy’ rather than easy. We hit the alarm, hit the floor, hit the shower, maybe hit the breakfast table and hit the door to our lives – busy with to-do lists, chores, appointments. But here’s the thing – we ALL only get the same 24 hours. How we spend it is up to us. God willing, we’ll get a brand new 24 hours again at midnight to do with as we choose. But we never ever get the time back that we spend.
How are you spending your lifetime Life Time?
I recognize that this may not sound quite like a Chiropractic educational moment, but let’s see if I can take you there. Summertime and the livin’ is.. hopefully full of moments that can be strung together and recalled later as taking time out for yourself and your family. To laugh, to swim, to walk, to rest, to camp, to let go, to chill out, to dream, to just be. To perhaps examine your life to be sure you’re spending it wisely and well.
So take a day, or a week or two if you can, and truly vacate. Leave the social media off the beach and enjoy your friends, your loved ones. Unplug, disconnect and REconnect with your tribe, with the Earth and with YOURSELF. Vacations, whether long or mini, enable you to return to your life refreshed, recharged and ready to continue the role you play on this 3rd rock from the Sun with greater EASE.
Our office will be closed the week of July 23rd to do just that. I’ll be with family, spending time together, catching sunrises, catching up with conversations, making memories.
Whenever you take a break from your normal calendar, one of the best ways to get back in the groove is to come home and come in for your adjustment. The adjustment will realign and re-tune your body’s communication ability once again! Perfect combination. Refreshed and once again RE-connected. THAT’s what I love doing – seeing the difference of the ‘before You’ and the ‘after You’ when you’re adjusted. It’s the single act that makes you more alive, more bright and well, just more You.
The act of the adjustment IS the ‘easy’..
Ease is what full life expression is about. Eas-y..
And not just summertime, but ALL the time.. (See, I told you I’d bring this around to a Chiropractic Educational Moment!) J
Today I wrote myself a little reminder note I’d like to share..
Busy day of looking within. Stay focused. Recognize the abounding abundance already in my life. Do more bun dancing! Plan. Play. Rest. Sing! Be in a state of gratitude always. Slip and check often. Stay congruent and laser focused on service. Stay committed to my own self-care. Keep Laughing. Water my own garden as much as I water others’. Live more simply. Breathe. Know I am loved beyond measure. Rinse. Repeat.
I love and appreciate you and all I serve on the tables in our Healing Place to Come Home to. Please share our office and its mission with those you care about. Remember what we do is so important – sub = below, lux=light. Subluxations are removed by the adjustment so people can be more bright. Better to live more bright than less bright. It’s as simple as that.
Serving you with Light and Life on the Tables,
Marcus Family Chiropractic
