A week ago or so, a friend told me that someone else (an acquaintance of mine) assumed that since I had dropped out (I like to call it “letting go”) of so many things that I used to be involved with – I won’t bore you with the list, but, really, it was crazy – that I had cancer again and that it was BAD. Yes, I am a cancer survivor, but I am very well. It has been almost 10 years since my diagnosis (the 10 year anniversary of that lucky day when I was in a car accident that led to an xray which revealed tumors filling my chest is coming up in just a couple of weeks…wow). Thank you very much for the concern. I really do appreciate it. And I do recognize that I was doing way too much these past several years. But, no I am not sick. In fact, I am very, very healthy.
For the past couple of months, I’ve been in hibernation. I’ve been slowing down a lot. In a good way. Reconnecting with my home, my family, NOT spending hours sucked into my computer, but spending “quality time” with my family and with…myself. So maybe it has been hibernation from the online world and from the world of volunteering for this, that and the other thing. And it feels GOOD.
I’ve been doing some cleansing too – of the body, home and soul. I am feeling lighter every day.
I really did intend to write every day on this blog in December and do the #reverb10 prompts (which I really, really like), but then more powerful intentions took over and I just went with it. I have been writing, just not publicly. I’ve been journaling and taking notes. I’m taking a class in Ayurvedic living (yoga off the mat) and am immersing in Anusara yoga. I have been working (as a lawyer for a tech company) – not a ton, just a perfect amount. I’m not taking on new clients. My intentions for life are stronger than they’ve ever been. My kids are happier. My house is more in order.
On this blog, I won’t be writing anything remotely commercial any longer. I’ve taken down some links (I’ve kept some) and I hope it cleans it up a bit. I’ll likely do some more cleaning. The clutter of a busy online life has added to the STUFF in my life. I am changing things up. I’m not sure exactly where it will all go, but it is changing. I am going super simple, simple, simple.
