I thought by now life would have resumed much of it’s pre-2020 look and feel. That’s what the provincial “restart plan” told us, anyway. Instead, I feel like I’m in an old movie where the walls are slowly closing in around me.
It’s heavy and it’s getting heavier and now we’re heading into the dark months. I don’t know about you, but as much as I’m looking forward to fall, I recognize the need to prepare for the changing season by intentionally putting into place practices to strengthen and support my emotional and physical self.
Mine will be grounded in faith. I will stumble, but I’ll get back up.
I’ll make intentional choices.
Embrace the power of the written word.
Keep my eyes and heart open to simple, ordinary joy sparkers that will will maintain focus on what matters.
Figure out how much is just enough of the news, and be mindful of where I get it.
Keep my home as a sanctuary.
Make no apologies for saying no. Or yes.
Eat healthy. Stay hydrated. Up my intake of Vitamin D. Be mindful of my carbohydrate intake(this one is tough).
Go outside to quiet places where I can hear myself think.
Establish a new routine and allow it to flex as needed.
Pray and keep watch.
What are you doing to prepare for the months ahead?
