Last Tuesday I was tired, grumpy, emotional, over it, done. I had a massive headache and could barely sit up to eat dinner.
So I rescheduled my online clients (thank you for your understanding) and deep dived into self care. That looked like having a good cry, sitting with and feeling all of my emotions to allow them to shift through me. I love the practice of having a cry to let all of the emotions come to the surface and leave my energy field. It feels so cathartic.
'Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going'.
I came across this quote a little while ago and I deeply resonated with it.
I'm sure I am not alone when I say that I have had many times when I have started a new practice extremely motivated and with great intentions, only for it to fizzle out in a matter of weeks or days.
The other day in lockdown I decided to mix things up.
The kids were was soooo over home schooling and were resisting it to their best efforts. Instead of trying to convince them to do it, I sympathized with them that home schooling sucks and I get that they'd rather be at school. Then I realized that we needed to shift this funky energy, so I suggested a game on the trampoline.
