Nuggets of Wisdom from Mary:
“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.” ~Frederick Buechner
“I love that the emphasis on the touching, smelling, and really getting into the holy and hidden heart of it. That is it.”
“I can remember thinking to myself, there has to be more to life than this. Surely, being completely asleep for life, being numb, just almost sleepwalking through life – Surely there has to be something else that would make life worth more living.”
Some of Mary's Favorite Things:
“Staying teachable. I’m always asking for feedback, I’m constantly learning. The minute that I think I know it all, my career is going to be dead. I want to see always how I can make things better. I get excited to hear about new perspectives, about new ways of seeing things because ultimately, my lens is really limited. I am seeing it only through my own eyes so I think a habit would be asking for feedback and continuously learning. ”
Favorite kitchen gadget: “Garlic Press”
Beth's Favorite Books: “Loveability by Robert Holden”
Best advice received: “From my mom: when anything is going wrong, ‘What does this make possible?'”
Mary's Happiness Formula:
“I am happiest when I am being authentic + telling my truth + staying in the present. Part of living fully alive is experiencing life in 3D, which means that you are willing to be present for whatever is showing up in this exact moment. I give myself permission to celebrate, to be in that excitement and really stay in it, and asking myself, ‘What is asking for my highest attention right now?'”
“Depression and anxiety are escaping the present. When we can find our true happiness, the ability to connect with life, just in this present moment – that truly is what we have – I better show up. I better be all here because this might be my last breath.”
“Part of happiness is being able to show up for what’s happening right now. Being present truly contributes to our ability to have happiness and fulfillment.”
A Challenge from Mary:
“Slow down in this moment, take a couple deep breaths, in through the nose, out through the mouth, in through the nose, out through the mouth. What is asking for my highest attention right now? What needs some loving today?”
