After January's whirlwind it feels like February has been moving at a snails pace. Yet even as I watch my friends and family keeping up their fast pace I am at peace with this slow down. I can be the snail for now. It is not negative, simply another state of being and I choose to honor it.
Last night my emotions told me I needed to be staying on top of my self care. Just because life has slowed a little does not mean I need less than my usual amount of meditation and sleep. So today I make my way at my own pace, doing what I need to do for me so that when the time comes I will have something to give to my clients.
I'm grateful for last night's reminder. I'm grateful for the book that has drawn me in and I'm grateful that it is one of a series so that I have a plan of what to read next. I'm grateful to go to bed on time last night despite working a little later than usual. I'm grateful for the quiet darkness in our bedroom that is conducive to deep sleep. And I'm grateful to wake up fewer times during the night than usual.
I'm grateful to set my own pace with what I know I can handle. I'm grateful to hold no judgment for this slower pace. And I'm grateful to have found this picture of a snail that I took at the park a couple years ago to give me a visual as I navigate my day.
What pace are you traveling at today? Is it a pace that is best serving you?
May today bless you with everything you need to keep pace and keep your breath. Have a beautiful day!
