A Blank Slate Day
After yesterday’s beautiful healing, it was very clear to me when I woke up this morning that today needed to be a rest-day. I had every intention of going out today, seeing a concert, meeting a friend for dinner . . . but everything in my body said, “No, I don’t think so. Time to rest today.” What’s almost surprising to me about this is that honored my body’s need for a day for rest without guilt.
It doesn’t mean I’m not disappointed; I was looking forward to hearing the concert and meeting up with my friend. I’m feeling bummed out that things aren’t going the way I hoped or planned. But if there is anything I have learned in these last few years, it is to listen to and honor the body – just as I do with my intuition. 🙂
So, I took it easy today . . . slept in, talked on the phone with friends, took a walk outside, and watched a couple of episodes of Iyanla, Fix My Life on the Oprah network. 😉 When my mind started to go in circles about all the things I “should” be doing, I stopped, took a deep breath, and got back into that peaceful space that I was feeling after last night’s event. And I feel like this weekend – or today, at least – is a blank slate . . . in a number of ways.
How about you, dear readers? What has your weekend been like? Are you giving yourself a chance to rest and honor your body? Trust me, you will thank yourself if you do.
