Finding Stillness is a weekly series on ways I find stillness without meditating. Follow the tag to read the other posts.
Throughout my life I never listened when my body said I needed to rest up. I have driven myself into chronic pain flares and deep fatigue through that
Now I relish in rest.
As I write this, I am almost ready to head out on an epic trip. When this is posted I will be back home and resting up.
Resting up and finding calm in just laying about isn’t a failure. It isn’t a sign that you are lazy. It is a sign that you allow your body to have what it so desperately needs.
It is a sign that you love yourself, deeply. That you love yourself enough to lazy about for a day because it will benefit you in the long run.
This way, finding Stillness is a gift to me and a gorgeous lesson in surrender
