I’ll admit, I’ve been a little MIA for the last month. I took it off with the exception of a few sessions that were previously booked. I needed some time to de-clutter physically, mentally, and emotionally, and do some reflection. I looked at what was working for me in my life and what wasn’t. I looked at what I was ready to let go of that was no longer contributing to my life, may that be people, objects, thoughts, etc. If it was not contributing to me, I decided to let it go.
I’ve been practicing living more in allowance. I’ve talked about this before. It is having no judgements of whatever it is, just letting it be. Now don’t get me wrong, some of this has been very hard and I will still be working on this forever, but it is a start. Things that use to “sting” no longer “sting” or "sting" as much, they just are there. And boy has this ever made life so much easier!! Who wants to spend their summer dwelling on crap that doesn’t serve them any joyous purpose?
So, what have I done to balance this all out? Added in more stuff to my life that contributes in a joyful way. I’ve spent time at the lake, went to the mountains for a couple of weeks, and started off August with making my own succulent arrangement, which I am determined not to kill before Christmas! I am looking at my business from the perspective of what makes me happy or sparkle on the inside instead of what I should be doing. I am doing summer the way I desire and not what some “responsible” adult would do. I am enjoying activities I have always thought I would love to do, but just never have done. I can say, so far this has been a pretty darn good summer!
Normally we think of the saying out with the old and in with new for spring cleaning, but why not now? Why not every day? Why not incorporate it into your life as just a way of being? Leave what’s not working out and bring whatever your body, mind, and spirit truly desires! Just do it continually and save yourself the stress and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised just how much easier life is. And remember, “All of life comes to me with Ease & Joy & Glory”®
