It wasn't what I wanted.
Though, I've learned not to fight it. Push through it. Resist it. Bargain with it. And definitely not to pretend otherwise.
I simply accepted it. I was sick. Sleep in bed all day sick. Stay in jammies sick. No dog walks with Cole sick. Get out of all chores sick.
No daily posts for the 12 Days of Christmas sick.
Today, I really wanted to join in on a weekly call I have, with dear friends for a live writing session and chat, being our last one for 2017. I pulled up to my computer screen (the joys of working from home) snug in my jammies and blanket.
We checked in before writing (as we usually do) about whether we had a topic or want to free flow.
It was Anna's turn. "Happy Winter Solstice!" she wished us all. I'd lost sense of time. Dates weren't important when everything had been cancelled.
She went on to share the Winter Solstice was a time to let go of anything you no longer wanted... and... to focus on your intuition and desires.
The whole group promptly tossed their topics into air and tag teamed on Anna's idea.
I enjoyed the writing exercise so much, I wanted to share it with you.
All you need is: you, your heart, something to write with, and some dedicated time (yeah, you deserve this).
Fill in the sentences (or create ones that work for you) with as many things that come to mind. You may wish to follow up this list with an action. Rip it up. Burn it. Shred it. Whatever speaks to you.
I want to let go of...
I'm no longer willing to accept....
This no longer serves me...
My Intuition Guides Me To
Fill in the sentences (or create ones that work for you) with as many things that come to mind. You may wish to follow up this list with an action. Read it out loud. Post it where you can see it every day. Whatever speaks to you.
I feel guided to....
I want to...
I need more....
I'm drawn to...
As always, I'm here and I'm listening. Shoot me an email. It just may take me a bit longer than usual to reply (still in healing mode, holidays, etc.)
If you're feeling brave, share in the comments. In our group, we discovered how similarly our intuition guided us.
Wishing you much love and wellness,
