#ESMEINK : "Mother Earth" Day 26

{Mother Earth}

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

LITTLE FRUSTRATIONS

{rant}

Day 1 of going to bed early-fail. Things came up in the evening after work, and I find myself finally sitting down to write my day 20 journal at 11pm. I'm already tired. My head has been pounding since  3pm.

I've also been a day behind in my journals for a few days now, since the Canada Day long weekend was so busy. It's playing on me! I don't like being unaccountable.

 I didn't get yoga or a workout in today, which I was really hoping for.

I feel discouraged tonight for some reason.

Thank goodness though, I don't have bigger worries in my life tonight. If this is my only issue at the present time, then I'm ahead in life. Winning.

It was an amazing, busy day at work, with lovely clients.  Another win.

My kids had such a fun day at day home today, that they wanted to just stay for a sleepover! But we came home, and had lots of snuggle time before bed. Win, win.

We have another showing on our house tomorrow. Win.

I have the day off tomorrow to stay home. I will find time for yoga when the kids nap, or we'll do some yoga together!  {which would actually mean, I'm a mountain. Kids climb said mountain}

My candles are lit, and I'm finding calm in my head as I write. Win.

I'm going to crawl into bed in a minute to snuggle the man of my dreams. Huge win!

Good night world, that is all I have tonight.
