So…I’ve been MIA. A lot has been going on in my world, causing me to neglect my first passion…which is writing.
There are times when I want to shout from the mountaintops what is going on…and times when I’m huddled in my turtle shell, well…just hiding in my shell.
The past few weeks haven’t been easy. I’ve had to make hard decisions, cutting people out of my life. At my core, I want to save the world, but sometimes you have to let people loose to do whatever it is that they do whilst maintaining your own peace.
I’ve been hyper-focused on the j-o-b, allowing it to consume me in a way I promised myself I wouldn’t. I put my vision and goals on mothballs. Again.
I’ve been working out like a fiend to the detriment of my body. I ignored the signs that my body needs more rest than the program allows.
All of these things combined hit me like a ton of bricks last Friday…and I spent most of Saturday in bed. I forced myself out of the woman cave for a short while…to buy snacks that definitely didn’t aid anything but an emotional eating binge.
Yesterday morning I awoke with clarity…seeing all of it for what it is.
Revealing your true self to the world requires you coming to terms with WHY you have been hiding. It requires you letting go of things that are comfortable. It requires courage and tenacity. Sometimes feeling like shit in a comfortable situation seems better than the unknown of soaring on wings of an Eagle…because I know what shitty feels like but I don’t know what true freedom feels like.
How’s that for honesty?
So…I’m back. I’ve thrown off the shackles and am getting back on track. I’ll be washing the shit off and coming back here regularly to inspire both of us.
In the meantime, drop a comment and let me know how you’ve been!
