I don’t know about you, but for me the past week has been exhausting. So much emotion. Tough and necessary conversations. I’m grateful for progress made, in my own heart, and in society. I pray momentum carries us forward toward positive change.
I’m taking a couple of days to re-center my mind. I have to recharge. In order to continue to pursue the things I need to pursue, I need a day or two of emotional and spiritual rest.
Perhaps knowing on September 16 I will turn fifty years old triggered something in my psyche. Perhaps realizing over half my life expectancy is gone, and I have not truly pursued the dreams of my twenties brought on this angst. Perhaps I’m in the throes of a midlife crisis.
I’m done with what if. I’m done with panicking over the thought of lying on my deathbed crying for the lost daydreams of my youth.
Time to figure out what I want out of the rest of my life and do it.
First big step-get out of the day job. It’s killing me by millimeters. So it’s gotta go. Or rather I’ve gotta go. I’m giving myself a year to find another way to make a living. A way that feeds me instead of depletes me.
First day-to-day step-further develop a healthy lifestyle. Lose this last 20-30 pounds. Find an exercise routine I enjoy that doesn’t include running. (My back just won’t let me run.) Come out as an essential oil user. Chronicle how essential oils help me recover my health.
Take the sentiment below to heart. This is my new motto.
