There has been a lot going lately.
I can’t share all of it, but I will share this:
I drove out to the ocean on Saturday to think. I do some of my best thinking by the water.
It was cold, but beautiful.
The spotty sunshine.
I was taking time to SEE what was around me.
A Canada Goose greeted me on my arrival, and was quite chatty before he/she flew off. (As a side note, I saw another at a bend in the road on my way home. This may have meaning, but not sure.)
I realized, once I found my favourite spot to sit, that I am keeping myself bogged down by so many things/feelings/expectations.
By keeping myself bogged down I am not moving forward.
Bit by bit, I am unloading myself of burdens that are no longer mine. I cannot steep in bitterness, nor can I keep blaming myself for things that are out of my control.
I made mental notes of things I wanted to do, and am taking time to write them down. I may just keep a journal (non specific) so I can refer back to these things at a later date.
Taking strict expectations off of myself. I am embracing all of me – faults and all.
I am shedding my skin.
Be kind world.
