This past week and month have been a blur, and just like that, we are a few days away from moving to a new city, adventure, and place. It blows my mind how much I accumulated in two years, but more likely it’s stuff I brought in from the last place. And so I let go, declutter, make space in my place, heart and soul for new experiences, new people, new things to talk about. Yet it seems far and close at the same time. So much to get done this week while also celebrating a friend’s wedding.
It’s hard to complain about my schedule when truly I am receiving the fruits of my behavior, from get togethers, to have the ability to move, to getting busier, and having to choose between events. Yet I also know that it is easy to get lost in going from one thing to another, easier to lose sight of my vision, to get buried in work and forget the reasons for getting into lawyering. It means remembering my why. To focus, to keep up morning routine to replenish myself so I don’t draw empty.
It means saying no more often, to putting up my hand and regaining my footing for my priorities so I am not just running from one thing to another even though I want to. I just know it doesn’t serve me when I don’t give myself time to rest and recover as well as heal. I am exciting as I about to begin a new journey to a new place, but also to my physical therapy, I can even allow myself to dream to get back to the gym. To not this 50th year of my life be just about recovering but of bouncing back, harder, faster and richer in experience and time with loved ones.
