Welcome to the Gently Moving Forward page! We try to share things daily to inspire, uplift and support! We explore the concept of inviting a bit of gentleness into our lives. Gently Moving Forward is a practice, mindset, and a way of being to offset stress and to increase resiliency and constructive impact in our lives. Stress is prevalent in the fast-paced modern world, leading many of us feeling frazzled, overwhelmed and confused at times. Gently Moving Forward is a practi...ce that promotes resiliency, clarity, and encourages slowing down a bit each day to give yourself presence. It's a practice and mindset to help us come home to ourselves. Deep peace, joy and a sense of alignment can ours when we take a few minutes to slow down and find stillness within ourselves. Gently Moving Forward reminds us to take a few breaths and slow down, even for a moment of two! Thank you for being part of our community!

Love this from my friend and colleague Amy White.
Rebelle Society's "Ode to the Misfits"
"Here’s to the wild, the weird and the wonderful. To those who ride the waves on their own seas and lose sight ...of the shore. Who discard the rules, the labels and the chains that once bound them, in search of the truth of their heart. To the ones who are fueled by the authentic and the uncensored, no matter how gritty the taste at times.
Here’s to the mismatched puzzle pieces that don’t get invited to join in all the reindeer games; that get left behind in the dust to learn their own way to fly. Who in their sacred solitude grace the skies with wings of freedom and a destiny born of soul fire.
To the rare, unearthly beings who walk the road less traveled, taking the adventure that rises on this path with purpose and passion. Who are brought alive by the fire in their blood and the longing threaded through their being.
Here’s to the rebels, the heartsick originals, and the bittersweet loneliness that fuels their spirit. To the ones who won’t conform, back down or step aside. To the ones who were not born to fit in but to gloriously stand out. To those who are here to be midwives of the genuine.
To the tribe of troublemakers that think so far outside the box, they dream on the edges of the infinite. To those who dance even though they have no idea how; who stumble and make it part of the steps, sing completely off-key and totally out of tune.
To the ones who raise their voices to the heavens even though they don’t always know the words.
Here’s to the awakened ones whose purpose is to feed their soul and not starve it. Whose mantra is the drumbeat of their own heart and the brilliant possibility that looms on the horizon. To the ones who dare to be open, to feel, to love and to live.
Here’s to the magical, the mystical and the misunderstood. To the wise ones who move between the shadows and the light. To those who howl at the Full Moon and run naked in the flowing streams. To those who read the compass written on the walls of their hearts and follow the North Star etched upon their spirit.
Here’s to the fallen, the broken and the shattered. To the warriors who know that to be cracked is to let the light in deeper. Who know that the best fruit is on the very tip of the branch and the brightest jewels are hidden within the roughest of surfaces.
To the ones intoxicated by the burning of the winds of change in their lungs and who live in the lands that others fear to tread.
Here’s to the brightly colored patchwork of divine visionaries that won’t stand down, play small or sit out. To the stargazers, the storm-chasers and the Old Souls that walk this Earth.
Here’s to the wild ones. Here’s to you."
The moon is beautiful tonight. It’s the perfect time to take a few moments to breathe, ground, and focus within where you can access your inner wisdom and sprinkle some love on your goals, dreams and desires 💜💜💜 #fullmoon #halfmoonbay #superbloodbluemoon #gentlymovingforward #allow #alignwithlove #love #dreamscomtrue #crushyourgoals #visualization
Aloha Friday friends!
There is a beautiful thing happening in our world right now. People are remembering the importance of kindness. Being kind includes being kind to ourselves. What if, just for today, we try to be a bit kinder in terms of our thinking? Those negative thoughts don’t have the same power when infused with kindness. Opening in to the energy of love, kindness and compassion is a worthwhile practice. Sending you all love on this Aloha Friday! 🐋🌴💜🐬🙏🏼🦋👊🏻💜
This is something that I have been trying to do over the past couple of years. Those persistent “problems” in our lives have so much to teach us about ourselves. Once I started to love my problem things started to shift. Give it a try! Sending y’all love. 💜💜💜
#repost Thanks @thinnerfuture for this reminder! Big changes don’t always require huge effort. Instead focus on the small changes that add up day after day. We owe it to ourselves to to do the little things that make us strong so we are able to do the work we came here to do! Love you all! #selfcare #selfhealing #selfkindness #selfcompassion #lifegoals #alignment #fitmindbodyspirit #gentlymovingforward
A reminder to follow your heart from Martha Beck. If something looks shiny and good, but doesn’t feel good, pay attention. 💜💜💜
Your heart is a compass in a chaotic world. Follow it. Resist anything that looks reeeally good, but feels reeeally bad. Be brave enough to turn away from shiny objects, and toward the light that makes them shine.
