Practicing

breathe. it's going to be ok.
As the waves of overwhelm rise and fall today, I’m practicing what I preach.

Brewing a batch of my favorite homemade Yogi Tea.

Stepping outside and breathing in the sun’s warmth.

Watching the voices in my head. Acknowledging the fearful panicky ones but listening to the one that says “Just keep moving. It’s going to be okay”.

Setting my alarm so I step away from the computer once an hour.

Letting the tears come if they need to. And the laughter.

Moving my body, even for one minute at a time.

How are you taking care of yourself today? I’d love to know.

    So beautiful, Alana. Wanted you to know that I also very much enjoyed your “I Choose Peace” post as well. Smiling your way, grateful for the reminder that you are practicing, too.

    On Tuesday evening a sudden, pretty high fever brought an hour of chattering chills. I felt so bad and wiped out that I stayed home from work on Wednesday and Thursday. While not “there,” I am feeling much better and gratefully, the flu-like symptoms have morphed into a bad cold. It’s been so good this weekend to be able to continue to slowly take good and gentle care by resting, sleeping, being, and letting go of a-l-l-l-l-l of the rest.
