I’ve been pretty tired the past week and have needed to step back from the blog a bit hence no recipe on Friday. It’s hard for me sometimes. There are so many exciting things I’ve been working on for the blog but these last two weeks I’ve been drained and I want to show up here with something useful. Blogging has always been a form of creative expression for me and a way to make connections. These days I have needed more time to connect with myself.
Unplugging a bit from the blog is scary for me. I hear all these stories that if I don’t post all the time people will stop reading the blog. When I am super honest with myself it’s all really okay with me. Everything changes. People come and go. Inspiration waxes and wanes. It is the nature of life to ebb and flow not to charge full speed ahead into the internet 24/7.
Slowing down, taking on less work, reading more books, meditating and just staring out the window has been so good for me. Life moves so fast these days and I don’t want to miss it because I’m worried about the blog or posting another photo on Instagram.
I want to feel the humidity on my face. I want to spend more time with Jason and the cat and myself. I want to visit my parents and friends and create more space for what feeds me.
Today I fed my spirit by making a non-yoga playlist. That is seriously no small feat for me these days! For the last year I’ve pretty much only made playlists for yoga classes. Lots of chanting and meditation music. I decided to step away from the yoga music today and create a summer playlist for fun. One day I might even share a yoga playlist here. Maybe.
