Hello friends, this morning I finally was able to wake up after a few days of traveling followed by many days of trying to recover from jetlag and a resurgence of my fall allergies. But, I am here! And I'm blogging - thank goodness; how I have missed you all so.
It's been a long couple of weeks, yo. It involved a trip back to my home state for a funeral, but was actually a culmination of a few big and life changing events for close members of my family. It took all this time for me to mourn, digest, review, and finally establish a new routine.
It came in handy that I had a couple of tools on hand:
How many minutes have I used asking, acquiring, achieving, taking stock, and working more more and more? Goal-oriented, self critical, push-through-it-all, by golly, not just bloom where I plant, but want to flower with fruit with my roots embedded deep and far. You all know me.
Balance. These last few days, I prayed for balance, and thanked God for my blessings, for even the stains on my shirt when I walked out of my door this morning. That the world is really small, our time here short, our potential- while infinite- is limited by the hours in the day and the strength in our bodies.
Acceptance. But still Thankful.
Mind - Body AND Spirit.
Have a peaceful day everyone.
