The lactic acid in my legs from yesterday’s workout is making it painful to get in my truck and walk up stairs.  Cringe – Silent “ouches” every time I bend over to load the dishwasher...

My brain is tired from a full day’s work at the computer and juggling kids who are still on summer break with my flexible work-from-home schedule. Cringe – Another TV show won’t kill them, right?

I just got back from the store where I spent too much money on lemon sorbet, cookie dough Haagen Dazs, and scented bath bombs for my kids. Cringe – I feel guilty and save the coupon on the receipt that I secretly know I’ll never use.

This is my real life day. My magical 8-8-17 LIONSGATE portal day. The day where the Sun and Sirius are teaming up to pour their uber powerful star light into our lives for our soul expansion and higher good.

I had planned to get up early for a sunrise ritual.

But I slept in.

I had planned to write an inspiring blog post about all the awesome connections and opportunities to activate our LION power today.

I had planned to sit in quiet contemplation and receive the beautiful, loving LEO light that today offers…

But now the sun’s about to set on this glorious day, and I find myself feeling guilty. Like somehow I wasted today. Like I didn’t prioritize well. Like I didn’t do what a spiritually-grounded “lionhearted leader” should’ve done.

Then I listen to Demi Lovato’s song “Lionheart,” and with tears in my eyes, I remember…

I hugged my children a lot today.

I walked my dogs.

I cleaned my kitchen and did (several loads of) laundry.

I went for a run.

I felt the sun on my face.

I watched it rain.

I took a picture of a flower.

I took care of business for my clients and did good work that I enjoyed.

I cooked food.

I paid bills.

I listened to my daughter play the piano.

I discussed a book with my son.

I did a lot – perhaps nothing incredibly spectacular to save the world, but for me and my world today, it’s enough.

And tonight after my kids are in bed, I will kneel down and pray. I will give thanks for this day, for my healthy (albeit aching) body, for my beautiful family and friends. For the opportunity to be alive. To be a human on this planet. To experience the freedom of my own breath. The beating of my own heart.

I will go outside and look up, and I will remember that my veins pulse with the diamond-star blood of kings and queens. I will feel my feet on the cold earth, and I will remember that I am a holy child of God, blessed with the divine lineage of the Creator. I will close my eyes tonight in peace, knowing that the “eye of the One” is watching over me and that I did good today simply because I lived.

Listen to this song and let it remind you of your place among the stars. We are lionhearts! Can you hear the roar? Join the LIONGIRL pride on Facebook.

**Thanks to my dear friend Lisa Suazo for sharing this song with me a few days ago! So love it.
