I've been busy preparing for September. September is going to be a significant month. I will either be residing in Calgary or Chilliwack, and it's still not going to be determined until August 30th.
So, I've been busy preparing for a fresh start no matter where I may be. I have a few little classes in the works for mid september. My focus has been so much on the preparation of the future, that in the past week I haven't put time into my journals. It's so easy to forget to take the time to take care of 'self'. My mind races to find journal ideas, and i've forgotten to just go with the flow.
This weekend I spent lots of time barefoot and free in mother nature. The sun kissed my face, and my feet felt grounded. My kids went for their longest hike with us thus far, and wildlife was plentiful.
I know, that whenever I'm feeling a bit lost-in my self, in life, in my work, in my purpose, in my future, that when I turn to mother earth, she speaks. The only thing that matters is here, and now. She calms me.
"The mountains are my bones, the rivers my veins The forests are my thoughts and the stars are my dreams The ocean is my heart, it's crashing is my pulse The songs of the earth write the music of my soul" -unknown
