The truth is that I probably started out this New Year just like most of us do. . .guns blazing, big ideas, big dreams, big goals. . .you know the drill. And then probably like a good chunk of people out there, things sort of petered out before they ever really began. For whatever reason, roughly about one month ago now, I just felt like I needed a break.
So I decided to give myself a week. And then I gave myself another week. And then two turned into three. And then three. . .well, here we are now. It wasn’t a planned break, there was nothing going on in my life that needed more attention, and we weren’t on some exotic vacation. For whatever reason, I just felt like I needed some time.
Of all of the goals that I have set for myself for this New Year, and for this year of seeing everything with “2020” vision, my most important one is to listen to my gut. To follow my instincts, and to not push anything just because. And so although I put off my work goals, I quieted the mental noise, and I just listened to what my mind, body and soul needed.
I took the time to read, to work on some house projects, to de-clutter, to walk, to meditate, to brainstorm, and to be ready to come back to my writing when it felt right for me.
And so today was that day. I was excited about it. I was yearning for it. I felt not only like I was ready to share, but that I really wanted to. So here I am, writing again, and feeling so blessed to be doing so. Namaste.
