§ We came to this world to LIVE OUT LOUD.
I still remember how terrified I was before I clicked on ‘publish’ to make public my first blog post nearly four years ago. Palms sweaty, heart racing, I knew there was no going back. I was coming out of the spiritual closet.
Over the past couple of weeks, my adopted country has been in chaos. Protests, looting, violence, roads blocked, supplies not getting through. All as the pandemic here has reached epic proportions. This has really tested my ability to be flexible and go with the flow. It has also taught me a lot.
I’ve never been a morning person. I can stay up all night but mornings, ugh… I wake up tired, grumpy and low in serotonin. My roommates, and as I got older, my husband and kids have learned to stay away from me until I do my 4-step morning routine.
The other night I went to bed only to find myself unable to fall asleep as my mind raced through all the things I had to do. I then woke up at 4 am thinking about everything that was on my plate. And popped up at 5:30 am, still anxious and overwhelmed.
I have a new spring in my step this week. Even more energy and zest. I’m more hopeful than ever for a better, brighter future.
I’m a firm believer that how we start the day influences how that day flows, how we feel and what we achieve.
People often tell me that I look a decade younger than I am.
I’m not trying to look younger. I’m 50 years old and I’m proud of every wrinkle I have and every bit of wisdom I’ve gained.
Just like for many people, one of the hardest parts of the past year for me has been the need to social distance. It’s actually been the most difficult part of a challenging year.
When I’m upset, I have a hard time sleeping. No wonder I woke up at 5 am this morning after only five hours of fitful sleep.
