L A T E L Y | Rest
My apologies. I meant to post this two days ago, but seeing as how this post is titled 'LATELY | Rest', I've been doing just that.
It's a good and bad thing.
Good, because after this weekend i.e. family birthdays, and my going away party, on top of getting food poisoning, or something of that nature, AND teaching my last Sunday yoga classes, coupled with the cray cray start of this week (I blame the cray full moon from yesterday!), I've needed a break.
And the ability for me to even admit to myself, and even you dear reader, is a huge movement forward for me. I'd go so far and say that I can pat myself on my back.
Because taking time for me is something I've always struggled with.
I'm use to pushing wayyyy past my limit, and either have a breakdown (cue the tears) or just be beyond exhausted. Like, I am talking averaging about four hours of sleep a night sort of exhausted...
But I am older/have matured more ???/ am not in undergrad anymore ?!?
You would think that I would have my solution then. To not push myself?
Well, nope. The hustle to success is tough...
But there is a difference between hustling + getting somewhere (yay!) and hustling yourself to near death. There IS a difference, and I've just needed (hell - I still do) need time to differentiate between the two. And take care of myself, body - mind + soul.
Oh, back to the bad reasoning behind resting.
I NEED TO PACK.
For my move to Boston, which is one week away.
And to answer any questions I think may be coming up : No, I haven't started.
Please roll on the floor, laughing and crying your tears out. Cause I am too.
I am just putting it off because I need to 'rest', and 'sleep in', and 'check on insta'... the excuses go on.
But I swear with tomorrow, it is another day, and I can begin this rogue packing period.
It shouldn't take me too long now. I just have to pack those necessities, and do some online shopping for that matter.
My procrastinators have been on point though, in case you were wondering.
I have been enjoying prepping for my last couple of yoga classes here in the Valley of Phoenix / Chandler - where I actually teach.
And sending those necessary 'Thank You' cards to those who I have been blessed to interact with, and who have helped me tremendously as of late.
Let's not forget about refueling | recharging | resetting | and reviewing when it comes with resting. The 're' part of life, which can be linked with the phases of the moon, and Mercury's retrograde, provides that opportunity to look back, reevaluate (another 're' word), redo, make better, and pinpoint one's energy on something.
It gives us permission to just go out there and do that thang that we need to do. It clears the space that is stagnant, dull, lull, and heavy. And creates room for moving forward, being creative, and finally going after that thing that you so want/desire/want to achieve. Hence, me + this blog.
Other ways I tend to procrastinate - doing some cute shopping with my mum to make up for all of those missed mother - daughter dates because I am moving + won't see her for a while.
While, also getting the Mr. Demetri ready for this impending move. Can I just say that it doesn't even feel like I am moving? I just don't know how to describe it. It's not like I am going on a cray long vacay, because, usually on vacay, you aren't going to be doing a ton of school work (unless you are studying abroad of course). But back to Demetri. There's a ton of information on that topic, so there may be a future blog post coming your way?!?
Well, I just wanted to catch up with everyone on the going - ons happening in the SFG (Sol | Ful Goddess) land.
