Ritual is important. One of our rituals is that we practice together: here, in comments on social media, on our blogs, or in our heads. Join us!
This past week, I noticed that when I have a lot going on, I want both stillness (sitting practice, downtime) and movement (exercise).
This coming week, I invite in the possibility of finding a third way. Over the last few years, I’ve been practicing being a steward of my own time and energy, which means a lot of decisions to do this or that. Now I’m in a place where there are lots of awesome, exciting projects available, and that excitement feeds me as surely as the rest I’ve learned to cultivate. So this week, I am ready to find a way of thinking that doesn’t hold exciting projects and enough rest in opposition.Ways this could work: I could look at ways to nurture myself in addition to my need for rest and downtime. I could do the water thing about it. Someone could give me a great idea, or I could just stumble across one. It could just work.
What went well: I’m an aunt, in that lovely chosen-family way, and an eighteen-hour-old baby asleep on your chest is pretty much unbeatable in the sweetness department.
Reports from last week: Last week, I invited in sovereignty and I got some great moments of clarity about what is my stuff and what is not my stuff. I would like more of this!
As always, you are invited to practice along with me at any time during the week, 100% guilt-free!
