Move your mind, Move your body, Move your soul.
Maybe it's the current phase of the moon, growing towards full on the 30th. It is a time for action (1st quarter moon) and refinement.
PLUS, it's Thanksgiving week. Many are gathering differently this year. Many are also considering Thanksgiving in a different light as more shed the true history behind Thanksgiving. What it is. What it never was. And what it could be.
Maybe it is also because of the phase I find myself in, nearing Mid-Life. Rather than having a full on Mid-Life Crisis or "Awakening" (a la Brene Brown. I love you, Brene!), I am having a Mid-Life Re-Write. I'm coining it right now.
For several days I've been scribbling about my old stories. With 43 years perspective layered on those past experiences, they don't sound the same when I speak them anymore. Re-writing them feels like taking my power back.
A re-write doesn't have to be writing, but of course, I love to write. I spent a couple of days imagining that every single thing in my life happened in my favor. Even the bad stuff. Even the regrets and the resentments. What if it was all for my benefit? And then I wrote the story of my life.
You gotta feel it to heal it.
