I had a very happy weekend where I was able to put everything away (symbolically) and remember/rediscover what's really important.
Here are some thoughts I am going to try to keep with me through this summer, through the stresses of work, through the ups & downs of friendships and relationships, through this crazy thing called life:
I can be grateful without needing to fill in the "why" or "what" I am grateful for. I can just say: "I am grateful."
I can try new things, even if they scare me. Fear is not stronger than courage.
My house is work in progress and there is no pressure to get it all done right this moment.
Same goes for the garden. (Peace be with you bunny rabbits.)
Deep breathing has the power to heal. Stepping away from stress, even for a moment, can cleanse. Do these things often.
Fear of pain or difficulty is no reason to not push myself further.
When feeling uninspired, go outside and run or scream or move or laugh or dance until you fall down exhausted. Repeat.
I am exactly where I need to be.
I am enough.
I was many things. I am many things. I will be many things in the course of my life.
