slow-down

Growing pains,
I’ve felt them.
Emotion rising.
Exhaustion, overwhelming.

When the body heals, it is an open channel.
Vulnerable.  Weakness comes before strength.
Tears.  Softness.  But underlying gratitude.
I am thankful.

I trust in this process.
I trust my body.
Because I know without any doubt,
That my body is always the last to catch up.

So I stop.

I’m almost 33.  And I’m pretty certain that I’ve spent almost three quarters of my life agonising over the way I looked, or what people thought of me.

I’m going to let this video do the talking today…

There’s plenty more I could, and will eventually say.  More of the “why” behind it all.  That will come.

I make mistakes.  I make impulsive decisions.  I follow my heart, and then follow my head, and then go back to my heart.  I get scared, and retreat.  I grow.  I learn.  I thrive.  I stumble.

I’ve mentioned a fair bit already, that this past year for me was rather… BIG.

Over the weekend, I wrote the following post on Instagram

“Rest now sweet lady.

I’m sorry, but it takes me quite a little bit of time to get over the excitement of spring.  In fact, I won’t apologise.  I will EMBRACE these feelings of new-ness and colour and life and fun!  Plants are starting to sprout, birds are singing and the smell of freshly cut grass is in the air.  Isn’t it magical!?

All these positive vibes have me feeling… well, grateful.  So I thought I’d share with you what’s making me happy right now.

Spring.

Can you feel it in the air?  A rebirthing.  An awakening.  Hibernation is over, and I feel like it’s really time to spread our wings.

Damn it feels good!

I LOVE this time of year.  To be honest, I actually love each season for what it gives us.  But there really is just something so deliciously bright and joy-filled about the first day of spring.

Something new has been ignited deep within.  And it feels so good.  Passion.  Creativity.  Purpose.  Joy.  It’s all there.  It’s deliciously exciting.

Part of it, has to do with this blog.  My blog.  My online space.  I’ve fallen in love with it again.

We’ve been though a lot this blog and I.

Shall we take a trip down memory lane?  Grab a tea (or a champagne if the time is appropriate!),
