Today’s post is not so much a blog as a resting place. I am busy in the world and yet creatively stalled. I expect to be in a January mode–which I see as focused and resolute (as in, moving towards resolutions)–but I suddenly feel unready for the rush forward. I’ve thought of so many different topics for a blog post, but none of them really interested me. It’s been like looking at a menu and saying, “Not that. Not that. Doesn’t appeal.” Maybe I’m not hungry for those outer experiences at the moment.
So I’m letting myself have an off week. To rest. Who knows what will come up to the surface?
I offer these few words as a point of connection to you. Wondering whether you relate more to the picture of the gray, wet weather or the fiery sky full of emotion. Know that whichever space you occupy, you are entitled. Sometimes we just need to be inward and private. That is one kind of balance.
Questions for Reflection: What is your energy this first part of 2013? Are you in a period of excited energy or finding yourself in a more withdrawn space? What are you hungry for today?
Writing Prompts: “My energy so far this year is ______” (then keep writing); “When I feel gray and withdrawn, I react by ______” (then keep writing); “I relate to the fiery sky by ______” (then keep writing); “I allow myself to go inward by ______” (then keep writing).
