I have been finding my plate loaded with some awesomeness: really interesting professional work, bubbling creative endeavours and super-interesting crescendo of cranial sacral study all mixed into my usual blessed and full life (hello amazing partner, hello awesome friends,kitties, colleagues and dear family).
I hit a huge blerg. I got overwhelmed so I slowed down to take care of myself. Good plan usually, except that my to-do list & goal pile remained the same so peeking at both of them sent me into EEP mode. My eep mode looks like this: panic, anxiety, more overwhelm, freeze, hide under the covers leading to shame + guilt spirals with broad dashes of cranky topped with a few catastrophic "every thing is awful!" exclamations. I doodled some captures of my overtures. What do your blerg and eep moments look and feel like?
Peaks and valleys, natural rhythms of movement. They are also awesome moments to tend to my ouchies and mind my achilles heels (susceptible to guilt and prone to episodes of trying to do ALL THE THINGS) so that I have insight and can do better when the blerg recedes.
Thanks for reading friends!
First I must introduce you to a dear friend, Little Woo. She is a spiritual mentor and muse who is simply amazing. She's ingeniously creative and her deep loving commitment to our local community touches many peoples' lives. I have had the deep privilege and joy of taking some of her Epic Evolution workshops.
Marie Forleo is generally the awesome. I find MarieTV especially to be full of 6 minute wisdom smackdowns that are valuable and practical. Hells to the yes for this, thank you Marie!
