After the collisions of last night and submitting my assignment which I felt like there was no point spending my remaining energy on, I spent my most of my morning in my bed and then lied on the concrete outside my backyard. I didn’t realize that all I needed was to be outside, with the sun. I don’t usually spend my mornings too long in my bed as I would often associate it with being unproductive (yes I don’t have an off button), but I just laid there, in my blankets, curled up, warm and nothing could harm me. I know it is a beautiful day outside and usually I would let the sun into my room upon waking but today, I just rested in the darkness and still, I felt safe.
The sky is clear today and the sun is showing off its usual beauty, touching everything in its expansive path, shining light, love. I was born in the early morning and wonder if that correlates to me being a morning person, my desire to always want to be outside, and always feeling better after lying in the sun. My friend had mentioned this to me before. She was born in the night, and says she is so much more productive in the evening. For me, I am ready to settle into my night time routine by 9 pm.
I welcome the sun to bathe my body. It feels like I am a battery being charged. I feel grounded. Laying on the concrete, I am reminded by what Annie said, there is the same energy in all of us. We are everywhere and in everything. And laying there, I felt all of it, I felt like I was in the sun, in the ground, the air, even in the leaves of my mango tree.
Me being the usual planner that I am, I laid on my stomach and wrote down what I want to achieve for the week. This month, I am fully aware not to put so much on my plate and set out realistic goals. I added in a massage appointment for tomorrow also. I get two days off and tomorrow I will purely dedicate it to treating myself, giving myself a lot of love, taking things slowly and help mum out with the cooking. It’s been a while since I’ve looked forward to a day like this. As I write, I get a hint of how it feels to be in alignment again- purposeful and in the flow of things. I can’t wait to share my next feature article which is something close to my heart and look forward to others reading it. This one is for girls and women.
This feels right.
Tonight, my family was blessed with food cooked by my Aunty. And given that I am becoming more open to food from my culture, I am eating more and seeing food in a different light. I am still working on developing a healthy mindset with food. There is so much conflicting information out there, and fed up, I began to make my own bliss ball recipe at 9.30 in the evening. Its been a while since I’ve experimented with cooking. But as I started adding the ingredients into the processor, I felt like I was in my element and I just knew this recipe was going to turn out well. And it did. This welcomed my mum and my sisters into the kitchen where conversations arose about my favourite topic- food of course.
One of the highlights of the night were the conversations I had with my youngest sister. She was inquisitive about what I was making and that lead onto me talking about food and health which always raises my frequency. She also expressed her enthusiasm to help me film recipe videos in the future and that got me excited also. And she continued to mention that she is looking forward to seeing me carry out my work, my purpose, my business. I was so enlightened because I had always been the one excited and adding my beliefs to other peoples work, yet rarely received it. And this, coming from my youngest sister was such a treat.
Food literally brings people together and this was just a reminder to why I love being around food and a perfect reminder of my purpose.
