i said a very sad goodbye to little louis as we dropped him off at "camp" tonight and now i'm saying a say goodbye to fellow hip tranquil chicks as i'll be sans internet connection for a WHOLE week. it's been a whirlwind the past few days as i prepare to lead a week-long retreat in tobago starting tomorrow. we have an amazing group of yogis coming and i'm delighted to spend a week diving deeper into my practice without the distraction of modern day technology (no cell phone either!). ahhhh, i may go into withdrawal but i'll come back a saner person!
my wish is for each of you to also have a moment of disconnect over the next week. by disconnect i mean a removal from a habitual pattern. for me it is being online/accessible constantly, for you it could be as simple as having 1 cup of coffee instead of 2 or fruit and nuts instead of a candy bar midday. whatever your vice, may you enjoy a moment of disconnection that ultimately results in a deeper connection to who you are and what truly makes you tick.
thanks for being you and sharing your beautiful selves with me. we're all so unique and have such fun idiosyncracies that make us even more special. embrace this during your disconnect. embody self-compassion. watch your spirit bloom this spring.
