Sometimes when I write these blogs, I have weeks of blog-posts in the queue, waiting to go out. Other times I’m awaiting inspiration at the last minute. I’m sure you can relate, the ebbs and flows of life happen to us all.
Several weeks ago was one of those times where I had several posts in the queue. I hadn’t had to think or process for this blog for many weeks in a row...which was really good, because in all honesty I needed some space in life...but then days went by and weeks went by and, well, I still hadn’t been inspired by anything. I started to get a little nervous.
Then I went on a slow walk in the woods….and as I was walking, I was recognizing that, because thankfully I had had several weeks in the queue, and because my life had been more than a bit crazy-town, I hadn’t actually allowed myself to slow down at all. I hadn’t been taking time to just allow myself to sit and think. I hadn’t been inspired because I wouldn’t slow down. I hadn’t slowed down because I didn’t want to slow down.
Sometimes that’s a defense mechanism, right? At least for me, when life gets overwhelming, it’s sometimes easier to just push through without slowing down and thinking. But what do we lose in the process when we don’t allow ourselves to slow down, to breathe, to process emotions, to sit and think?
My dear friends, may we slow down a little more this week, even if it’s scary to do so. May we slow down, breathe a little deeper, and perhaps find a little more inspiration.
I hope you have an amazing week dear friends, I am so grateful for each of you.
