“You need to be content with small steps. That’s all life is. Small steps that you take every day so when you look back down the road it all adds up and you know you covered some distance. It took me a long time to accept that, but it’s true. You need to have patience.”– Katie Kacvinsky
So, here I am. Back at work.
I did three small client sessions yesterday. 15 minutes. 10 minutes. 30 minutes.
I rested between each one.
When I was done, I slept for two hours.
It felt good to be working, but gee it tired me out.
Late in the day I prepared this blog post so I wouldn’t be under pressure to get out of bed early and write something if I’d had a bad night.
Meanwhile, I have to keep reminding myself that I am making progress.
I have to keep reminding myself to be kind to myself, and patient with myself. To not get frustrated, or depressed, or cranky.
I am making progress. I am healing. It’s slow, but it’s happening.
This week I’ll keep doing short stints at my desk. Followed by lots of rest.
I’m over pushing myself.
October has great energies for creating the kind of self-awareness and understanding that comes from deep reflection. It’s an energy that allows us to turn experiences into wisdom. Wisdom can transform our lives.
I’m transforming my relationship with my body, and my relationship with my work.
How about you? What wisdom can you find this month, and how might it transform your life? Let me know in the comments.
Biggest love and hugs, Nicole xx
