As this month comes to an end I spent some time this evening reflecting.
Mostly on who I am. Beyond my “normal roles” of wife, mom, business woman…
Purposely stepping back from electronic usage. The eye doctor check up and ability to actually see without strain and discomfort has been a beautiful reminder to be grateful but also always trust your inner knowing.
This month has energetically been challenging. In so many ways. The month felt heavy as soon as it started. Unfortunately as it went on, we encountered more challenges that we could not have imagined…
Once I got my husband home mid-week last week and we got settled into our new routine for this time being, I literally felt the exhaustion hit me – hard! I slept a LOT on Saturday. Ive processed alot, have sat in silence. I also took out a big distraction, as much as I truly do enjoy Instagram… “social media” isn’t “social” at all. Its isolating. Don’t get me wrong, it can FEEL social… but in reality it really is not. Its simply consuming our minds with a lot of “stuff” that we maybe do not need.
So this past weekend, I unplugged and it was great!
You know why… because social media is not what I would call an ally. Especially if you are emotionally charged. We were rocked back in October. That was when it hit me PTSD is a very real thing and it can hit you when you are least expecting it. It reared its ugly head again back in October after my husbands accident.
Truthfully. What I find hard, might be easier for someone else, just like what I find easy, might be hard for someone or our “hard” and “challenging” times may be like nothing to someone else. What matters is how I am feeling in the moment, or if it was for you, how you are feeling in the moment. No one can tell you how you should or shouldn’t feel, that’s simply not realistic.
Much like, every bit of our individual lives does not need to be publicly shared. I truly am grateful for my blog – Ive got some fun plans to freshen up my website with things better organized and relevant to ME! To also set an example for our kids. Taking a step back into my true self… who I am before any of my “labels” of Wife, Mom, Office Administrator…
Which is coming more into alignment every single day. I looked over and saw this sunset, where our dog was laying and it was just the perfect image for this post… Especially as I pull myself back into alignment and embrace. All in divine timing.
Good Night May – The energy for June feel’s bright and beautiful! ❤
The importance to me of living an authentic life.
