This re-entering the world is an “interesting” thing.
I am staying on top of doing the weekend homework – and that helps a lot. We went through so much during those 7 days – so much to integrate. But in a good way.
I find that I have been slowing down in some ways – checking in with myself more and making sure that how I respond or behave is authentic. So far so good.
It was reassuring to read in the workbook that re-entry can feel awkward – not just for me but for those around me.
But one of the most important things I have learned and am clear on is that I will find many opportunities to forgive myself and to keep on going. I am not and will never be “perfect” (but wouldn’t it be nice?) but what is essential (for me) is to be open and vulnerable and to you use my voice and to speak my truth.
Putting into practice that you have to nurture and love yourself first. This is not selfish – this is self-full.
And so I had a lovely walk today in warmth and sunshine with Abby and I bought buckets of blueberries.
I have more packing to do.
I am hiking tomorrow.
I am connecting with Alisa on Wednesday – so excited and happy about that.
Making a list (checking it twice) that I have all my moving day ducks in a row.
They say that moving is one of the most stressful things you can do. I intend to handle it with grace.
