Day 317

After my outdoor training session I am feeling so energized. I know the more I keep up with daily exercise, even if it is just a walk it will help me feel better. Maybe just not at the gym. I went to visit some lovely soul sisters for lunch today and it warmed my heart. I feel so supported and know that I don’t have to have it all figured out. I loved having deep honest conversations about life and where we are all at. I know that life isn’t a race and as cliched as they say it is about the journey. We are all looking for that shiny new thing or what our purpose is. The truth is by sitting in the uncomfortable in between void and surrendering to what life brings us, can some times lead us closer. I usually am always doing, doing, doing. It is hard to rewire my brain to spend more time just being. I know this sounds silly but I sometimes feel like I’m failing, when I’m not doing. I keep thinking this time I have could be used for something more productive. Then I snap out of it and relise there is a season in for all types of being in our lives. There are seasons for putting our head down and go, go, go just as there are times for rest and recuperation. It is winter here in Sydney, although the sunshine and warm days lately you would hardly be able to tell. I do feel like I have been in a bit of a winter in my mind these past few months. I have slowed down. I have stripped back everything and just sat in each day and surrendered. I haven’t been actively doing, other than a little coaching and writing. I have just allowed myself this time.

Hamish I am so grateful for you. Today I thought about our hearts beating together for those nine months. I will forever cherish those moments with you in my tummy.
