I've been spending close to about two weeks with family...
I missed my family.
Their quirks....their likes and dislikes...
I found myself shedding my skin ...
Emotionally exposing another side of me.
I returned to my home last night.... Briefly.
To clean....
To pray...
To establish my energy.
My home is beautiful.
I'm thankful for it...
But if I wouldn't have left it.. I wouldn't have appreciated it. Missed it.
I find that to be incredibly unfortunate.
Especially since I was actually saying "thank you lord for me home"....
That's why balance is so essential.
Go home weekly.
Stop in and say hi...
Or if you don't have a family or a family home...
Go see a friend...
Or go to a Church...
Take a long bike ride..
A walk , a drive...
Whatever... Get out of your routine.
Make your life your own.
This concept I would preach but I would not follow.
It's nice to see it now for what it is....
I made plans to learn how to dance bachata Friday night...
I made plans to learn how to surf Saturday...
And I made plans to ride a bike on Monday...
Each week... I want to dedicate my time to something I've never done or have always wanted to do.
And that's how I am goin to live my life this year...
The local restaurant and bar will leave you full with a headache the next day. But exploring new surroundings and establishing new energies will help you in your growth....
Explore your madness...
Balance it out.
