I knew on Friday that either a Full Moon or New Moon was coming up. The full moon is tomorrow. My energy has been slightly off. My body was physically tense and I gave myself permission to take the weekend ‘off’.
Exercising and daily movement of my body, honestly this is new to my routine. I am loving it. I am loving how I feel. I am loving how my clothes fit. I pulled something in my shoulder and I knew I needed to honor my body and allow grace and ease.
Yesterday, the spring weather was back. I am grateful I got out and captured some nature shots as this morning the temps dropped drastically and the dandelions were shriveled up!
I spotted this dude in our back yard, I could hear the distinct buzzing sound and found him behind our shop. I managed to get this picture before he flew up, pretty much looked at me and then flew in the other direction. 2021 the year of space.
I do remember this feeling all to well. Change can feel hard, guilt feels so much worse. Its something for me to work on and trust that this IS going to work out for everyone’s best interest, eventually. I do truly pray for this.
As much as our lives haven’t drastically changed, we both work in what is classified by the government as “essential service” and we work with my family, they are our bubble and have been the entire time. However this has been a toll on every single person’s mental health. As I journaled last night, I decided how I would shape my day on Sunday, with ample time for relaxing, reading, writing, downloading my photos. Some dedicated me time. Something we are all craving right now. Me time alone but also with others. Nature, Fishing, Art, Photography… truly grateful they all complement each other. Giving my girl and I some subjects and shots.
Another social media break today, which hits me, why does it need to be a “break”. Sure its great to see what people are doing, I love it for the photos. Honestly I am such a visual person. But it doesn’t need to be near as much time as I was spending. This tends to be my go to as I begin feeling heavy, which last week was beginning to feel like that.
If you have been feeling slightly off, not sleeping right, appetite change, cravings, irritability, anxiousness, frustration, anger — there is no “normal” right now. Take a deep breath and FEEL the feelings. Allow yourself permission, cry, scream, write, run, walk, lift weights, sing, dance, whatever you need to do to help process and move them through. Even a 10 minute meditation can drastically calm the mind.
This evening, I pulled this card,
INNER EARTH – You’ll survive this. New solutions and beginnings. ❤
Enjoy this Sunday evening, however your heart fulls pulled to.
