"Fantasy is what people want, but reality is what people need. I have retired from the fantasy part." - Ms. Lauryn Hill
This past week has been wonderfully full of understandings, smiles and tears. My holiday weekend was amazing. I was elated to share my space, time and energy with such magnificent humans. I am beyond blessed. I was in a lot of emotion pain one night this week, however. I had just finished the days of holiday festivities with my friends and family and some weird mix of unrequited love and domestic discomfort had me up all night. I knew if I could just fall asleep that the next day would be better, and I was right, it was. Things always get better when life's not going so good, and sometimes they go worse when everything's going great. That's the waves of life and the ways of the world. But we have enough joy and life inside of us to stay appreciative of all new and good things.
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. - Psalm 30:5
I also had some really rewarding nights this week. I spent time with friends I haven't seen in a while and got good laughs in that were the perfect dessert for my life right now. I did some reading and worked on my business, and connected with new potential collaborators. If I exercised any of the 3 principles on my list (structure, salubrity, & solitude) this week, it would be structure. I have a long ways to go to peel back the many layers of companionship. I have to be more international if I want to spend more time in solitude. It was also the holiday week and soon things will return back to the normalcy of routine and responsibility.
I feel like the days are going by so fast. There is so much I need to do, and so little time to do it. But, when I get up in the morning to pray, meditate and stretch I feel like time is still. I feel like I am exactly where I need to be and time is with me, keeping me warm.
My goals for this upcoming week are to stay positive, maintain low expectations of outside things and map out all the hours of my day so that I am spending them wisely!
I AM A SACRED WOMAN. WATCH ME WIN. HEAR ME ROAR. SEE ME SOAR.
