I’m revisiting the concept, the theory and the practice this week.
Monday I flew up to spend, much-needed, time with my daughter. I haven’t seen her in months. How did so much time fly past?
Thursday, while she’s working, I’m hopping a seaplane to squeeze in a quick visit with my brothers.
Yesterday’s travel was a total cluster.
Up at 4:15, too little sleep, I raced to the airport.
Flew to LAX where I cooled my heels for 2 hours, while they located a flight attendant.
Jumped a train to the city, and fell asleep. Missed my stop and had to backtrack.
Although I’d tanked up on caffeine during the flight, it clearly wasn’t enough. I exited the train and realized it wasn’t a Starbucks sort of day. I headed for a glass of wine, while I waited for my daughter to get off work.
I realize I’m racing, flying, jumping and hopping. Too busy, too fast!
This morning I had 89 new emails.
Enough…in fact, too much.
This doesn’t mean I don’t love you. It just means I love me more and I’m taking a breather to rebalance.
I need to get back in touch with what my body and spirit needs. I need more slow living and downtime to chill.
In full disclosure I will admit, I passed a hat store, on the way to the wine. This hat wanted to come along with me, and I didn’t feel I could let it down.
Relax, recharge, breathe deep and I’ll see you…
Thanks for reading and gave a great day!
