So I’ve been doing a lot of taking care of myself since we moved to Maine.
I’ve been writing every day (thank you 750words.com — 36-day streak!), going to yoga almost every day (sometimes twice a day!), sleeping late, lying on the couch a lot, eating the best foods for my body (so much local organic here!), exploring new spiritual therapies, staring at the ocean a lot, connecting with old friends on long phone calls, and reflecting on old wounds.
I think I burned out. I think it happened a long time ago and I denied it and kept going, until I couldn’t anymore.
So I’m investing in rest and renewal now. I just signed up for a Reiki I training, and I’m considering a Yoga Teacher Training too. I feel called to be fully in my body and working with/on my energy.
Maybe it’s something I’ll bring into my work, or maybe my work will change entirely. I’m not trying to figure that out just yet.
But being in nature, watching the deer in our yard in the evenings and the birds flying over the waves in the mornings, and absorbing the wonders of Maine is helping me to reconnect with my own true nature.
I have no idea where I’m going, and maybe for the first time ever, I’m not forcing it. I’m going to try just being and see what happens.
Sending love and light to each of you wherever you are on your journey. Xo
