Not that I ever really left it, but I did take 31 days and live without time lines and commitments for the most part.
I found that although it seemed like a lot of days on the front end, it has gone by quite quickly.
I no longer feel as if I just had surgery and although I am still easily tired and fighting some nausea, I would say I have recovered well.
I no longer feel as if I am “off duty” as I find myself thinking about my reentry in the coming week….
I am giving lots of thought to living with intention and balance.
I am giving lots of thought to what intention will look like, from the moment I wake up (including what time I wake up) to the end of the day when I say my prayers and go to sleep!
I am giving lots of thought to what balance will look like. How busy do I want to be and how is the best way to stay connected with those I love and not have my calendar overflowing?
I am giving lots of thought to my time, my energy, my health, my finances, my family and friends, my job and my responsibilities….
This week Wednesday my 31 days of rest will be up but my resting will not be over, it will just be mixed in with other things I enjoy.
I have taken time to be kind to myself in recovery and healing.
I have taken time to rest and am reminded that one does not need to be ill to make these choices…..
Part of my journey to wellness is to live with intention and balance, hard work and rest, community and solitude, mundane and new discovery, routine and spontaneity, tears and laughter, and giving of myself and receiving for myself….
This week Wednesday I am reentering my world and believing I will find wonderful things….
