I plan on taking it easy on myself today. It’s a weird stance to have when I am staring at a 14+ workday. But where I can, when I can, I plan on resting and being kind to myself.
Because Brad came over New Year’s I didn’t do the prayer I had wanted to do. It ended up being better last night anyways because I did it with my daughter’s. They watched and participated in a ritual prayer for the first time with me.
I laid down a salt circle put 12 candles, representing each month, and prayed for blessings, light and love for the incoming year.
It was so special and sweet to me to include them in it. I’m so glad to be getting back to my spiritual roots.
I ate way too much sugar yesterday, forgetting how sensitive I am to it. Not that we all aren’t. But as I laid down to sleep I could feel my heart racing and my joints felt so tight and sore. I indulged way too much and paid the price. It’s not a huge deal. The body resets itself given proper nutrients and care. Thankfully.
Well. Off to start my day.
Be kind to yourselves.
