Day 167 of 365:
Not here. But not really there. There is a growing gap in my post numbers this week.
I’m taking a bit of a break – a time out…if you will…
Time to regroup.
Time to reflect.
Time to reconnect.
I just have this need to check in with myself, to see where I stand emotionally, mentally. I need to just take a moment and breathe, slow my heartbeat and steady my stride.
You see, I do this every once in a while…when things are going so fast I feel dizzy and I think I need a reality check. When the tilt-a-whirl goes too fast for too long and your legs feel wobbly, and you can’t tell when you’re on the ride and when you’re not? That’s me right now.
I’m not giving in. I’m not giving up. I giving myself permission to step back and say -> “whoa….slow down a moment here.”
I’m okay, and I’m just fine – I’m simply taking stalk, cleaning out my pantry and making sure that everything I feel and believe still comes from a place of authenticity. Because you know what? It is perfectly normal and healthy to back off.
And you know what? It is okay to give yourself permission to check-out every now and then. We should all be a little more forgiving with ourselves, and allow ourselves to bend…and be perfectly at ease with this.
(it took me almost 40 years to realize this and be comfortable with it)
