Deep Dive

I’ve been doing a deep dive into some inner work. The time has come. You know when you get that message? Your inner voice whispers -- it’s TIME -- do the next level of excavation! This stuff is embedded pretty down deep in the bedrock, but I feel it loosening and dissolving rather willingly. Though I’m in the thick of it, it’s not stressful or traumatic, like it might have been in the past. I don’t feel constantly triggered, I’m not acting out, or in despair. This time around there’s more of a healthy distance, as if I’m taking an observer’s birds eye view.

Handstand

I was stretching after my workout on Friday and realized I hadn’t told a soul about a massive milestone achievement I unlocked two days before. I kicked up into a handstand. Totally by myself. And held it. For a good, solid amount of time. This might not sound like a huge deal to some people, but for me, it’s HUGE.


Sick Days

I have been sick for many weeks now. It’s kind of insane. I am somebody who never gets sick, or who never used to. Enter, toddler going to daycare. Ugh. Joe and I - all of  us - have been more sick in this past year than ever before. 

Being sick when your kid is also sick is a particular kind of hell. I think I’m getting used to it. I have resorted to the tv babysitter. It can’t be helped. 

Blessing & Releasing

The last week has been potent, with new energy ushered in and the start of a brand new seven year cycle. I’ve found myself in need of extra rest! The stillness reveals insights: where I’m still holding on, what I need to let go of or release, and how to do that with love.
