bonjour rainy tuesday.
after being cooped up in the school library most of yesterday, i'm thankful to be sitting at my kitchen table (aka home office) writing today with a warm, snoring pug on my lap. particularly pensive today and the rain intensifies this mood. i'm feeling behind on so many things (random to-dos, writing projects, accounting), yet lacking the energy and wherewithal to bring them to fruition. at least for today. instead i want to curl up with my kindle, light a warm fire, and spend time in a state of being (vs doing).
motivation is an interesting creature. sometimes we're filled to the brim with energy and the know how to knock things out of the park. while other times we're moving at a snail's pace and wondering if we remembered our basics - like morning vitamins.
life has a funny way of throwing us curveballs and sometimes it is best to go with the flow. so the to-do list will continue to grow. so my neurons aren't firing quickly today. so my soul requires a respite. the world will keep turning. the to-dos will be there when i'm back to my preferred pace. and it's ok if i take double morning vitamins just to be sure.
one thing we know for sure is that nothing is ever constant. change is inevitable. by learning to ride these changing tides of energy and emotion, we'll allow ourselves to be authentically whole -
as we are, in this exact moment, without apology.
