I was sitting next to the creek the other week in the middle of a walk, and as I sat there I was thinking more about the post from last week, and about how there are times our movement practices bring up big emotions in our lives and in our bodies.
How often we move through life without slowing down, without stopping, without allowing ourselves to just be quiet, to just be still, to just be…to think through and process those harder spots in life.
I think, at times, our movement practices allow us to hold space for ourselves, and allow others to hold space for us. Our movement practices can allow us to show up in our bodies and just be there, nowhere else to be, nothing else to do, fewer distractions…just to be there with ourselves so we can begin to process and sit in those bigger emotions.
Sometimes that’s a scary place to be, to just be there with ourselves, but I do think it’s so very necessary, my friends. The ability to slow down, to stop, to allow our minds to be a little quieter so we can really feel our feelings, it’s just so important.
My dear friends, I hope this week we can hold a little more space for ourselves, even when that space might feel a little scary.
Have an amazing week, my friends.
