The Reason I’m Taking A Blog Savasana
For the past few weeks I’ve wanted to do nothing besides crawl under the covers of my bed and sleep. And watch a little Gossip Girl. And then sleep some more. Feeling I was on the risk of becoming a recluse, and having Chuck/Blair/Serena/Nate/Dan story lines showing up in my dreams, I realised it was time to assess things.
My life is feeling crowded, and instead of saying no to commitments and putting in place necessary boundaries, I’ve just had the urge to hide away from it all.
As my health has improved, I’ve taken on project after project and commitment after commitment – excited because I now have the ability to work for longer than an hour without making a juice, and I can actually leave the house. However, after lying so low on Gerson Therapy for the past two years, I didn’t realise how much I would feel the effects of a rapid life re-integration.
I’ve reached a point now where I’m exhausted. I’ve been feeling flat, and unenthused about everything (except Gossip Girl). My writing feels lacklustre, my ideas feel bland, things I really want to manifest for myself just aren’t happening. I can’t even commit to reading any one book.
I was starting to feel really down until my friend Susana pointed out my problem. I’m feeling so crowded that there is no room for anything shiny and new to show up. My to-do list is too long, there are too many un-read books on my nightstand, there are too many un-read emails in my inbox, there is too much stuff on my desk, and there are too many things I still want to achieve.
I need to create some space.
And so, that is what my blog savasana is all about. I’m taking the next four days off posting to get back on top of things. I’m tired of feeling rushed, and compromising the quality of my work because of it. I want to stop chasing my tail and get back to living from a place of inspiration and enthusiasm for what I am creating.
As silly as it sounds, making the decision to take a week off was really tough. Writing to you every day makes me so happy, but I know that a teeny amount of time apart will make our relationship even stronger. While there will be silence on the blog front, I am going to be working away behind the scenes on some amazing content, a mini site upgrade, and – most importantly – The Lifestyle Transformation Guide. I’m also going to do a huge life de-clutter to make room for fresh ideas to bubble up and new opportunities to walk through my virtual door.
I will still be sending out my Friday love letter to those of you on my newsletter list, so if you’re on there I will chat to you then. If not, see you next Monday!
Where can you simplify and create space in your own life for fresh opportunities and possibilities to show up?
Positive affirmation for the day: I am filled with silence and peace.
