So much is running through my mind today as I start to get back into life. It’s amazing what time for reflection does for someone. I have begun to realize that it takes a good amount of time to be able to truly take note of changes, to make decisions and actually begin to believe that something new is imminent. My observation is that at three weeks away from it all, the shift to actually occurs.
Sadly in this busy non-stop life we all lead this is almost impossible unless you are forced by circumstances out of your control to take that kind of breath. I fortunately have been lucky that way. Now its strange to see health set backs as luck, but I suppose that’s what I mean. Three to four weeks of spending time with yourself, even not at your own choosing can be a gift; at least that’s how I have learned to see at this point in my life.
I cannot change the circumstance so I learn to find the positive within it. In current years it seems that every time I get to the point where I am saying to myself, “I need a break; to slow down and re-assess”, my body is happy to oblige. The reality is that I most likely would never slow down on my own. My body heard me and somehow did what it had to do for me to hear myself.
I have learned to be okay with circumstance. I am very aware of how lucky I am that none of my issues have resulted in catastrophe. I note this whenever I can as a reminder to listen from within. My next step is to learn to make my decisions before my body does it for me!
