I was walking in the park the other day, thinking about the past couple of posts, and the physical and the mental aspects of our lives. As I walked, I went past these two trees I hadn’t walked by in years. These particular trees are deeply intertwined as they share the same roots, you couldn’t separate the two of them if you tried.
As I looked at those trees, I was struck by the thought: just like those two trees are so interconnected, in the same way the physical and mental aspects of our lives are also so deeply interconnected.
I was noticing how the physical and mental parts of our lives might look different, might feel different, might manifest themselves in different ways, but even so, the work on one area inevitably affects the other. Our physical and mental lives are inseparably intertwined. We couldn’t separate them if we tried, they are interconnected.
My dear friends, may we see the work we’re doing in various parts of our lives, and may we celebrate the fact that the work we do in one area of our life inevitably spills into other areas. May we care for our physical and mental selves a little deeper this week, may we see the way the care in one area spills into the other, and may we celebrate the ways we care for ourselves.
May we celebrate our interconnected lives a little more this week.
I hope you have an amazing week dear friends.
