I've been feeling a bit guilty for slowing down. These past few years have been intense. I've had to retrain my body and mind to take things one step at a time, and I am having to push myself to operate mindfully when it comes to delighting in my senses, taking breaks, living "care-fully," & existing directly from my heart space. I've always been an extreme multi-tasker...falling into the false belief that doing more is better. I'm enjoying being more present, taking more time outside; alone or with family and friends, finding that small patch of moss and allowing myself to relax...all the way down to my toes ~ releasing the guilt ~ knowing that I am solely responsible for creating the life I desire to live.
