The morning is here. The sun is peeking through the curtains as if to say let’s do this, you’ve slept enough already. The blueness of the sky has returned, the clouds seem happy to not be filled with rain and the air looks deceivingly warm. It is not warm. I am in the Blue Ridge Mountains where snow fell in October just the other night. It is 31°F. It is October and I am not mentally prepared for winter.
Winter preparation means preparing my mind for massive amounts of self-love and discipline. It means massaging my heart just as good as I massage my kale and enrolling a serious circle of accountability to support me in my healing protocol. The journey is a blend of adventure and routine. Letting go of old habits and forming new ones, especially new ways of thinking, is not for the weak. Although I at times feel weak, I know for sure that I am strong enough to accomplish my personal and professional goals. Oh, and then there’s the work to prepare for the book release, but that’s another post for another day. Today is Sunday, a day I shall use for going within.
I am revisiting my video blog, Healing Naturally, as a way to keep myself accountable and to practice sharing consistently. I started out strong then stopped posting even though I was still recording posts. Exploring and exposing my fears, anxieties and areas of weakness just didn’t feel cool. Authentic sharing requires lots of courage, a willingness to be naked and let it all go. Well, I made myself the promise of a huge break through by the end of 2014. I intend to live and love boldly. The break through is not going to happen with me standing on the sidelines, hiding under the covers or sitting quietly in the corner pretending to meditate. Nope, my purpose was revealed to me at 10 years old and I’m about that life of honoring it. Look for posts once or twice a week on my youtube channel.
