I know you all are on the edge of your seats wondering why there was no Wellness Tip of the Weekend or blog yesterday. (Please note a hint of sarcasm.)
While I know this probably didn’t make a ripple in your day, it was the first time since last September that I had not met my goal of having a wellness tip and blog posted Monday through Saturday.
The great news? I didn’t freak out or even stress about it. That my fabulous friends is huge progress! In the past I would have ruminated on it all day and killed myself trying to find another way to post. I love that I was able to let it go.
And I’m following up today with a short blog to let you know what happened. So I’m still meeting my 6 blogs-a-week goal.
The silver linings are endless!
So what happened?
Not to be anticlimactic or anything, but when I woke up yesterday, our Internet service was out. It was only restored about an hour ago.
This time without Internet access was truly a gift as I was able to get a lot of other things done, rest, and have some quality time with my husband.
We are often so scheduled and planned in our lives that we don’t allow the Universe to lead us to the opportunities that might fulfill us at a deeper and more profound level, or truly move us forward to who we are and what we want.
The Internet being out was my signal to let go of control and look for other meaningful ways to spend my time.
If you’re focused on your priorities and still get interrupted or side-tracked, throw away your to-do list. Do your best to go with the flow, keeping your eyes and mind open to the gifts that are coming your way.
Together we can do it!
Whew! I almost called to find out if you were all right! But I decided that my lovely daughter would call ME if something had happened and I old just wait!
Next time just call. Don’t want you to worry. Love!
Yay, sounds like this was a huge step for you!
Thanks, Sandra! Appreciate the comments.
When I first started writing my blog i used to feel under pressure to write everyday and I did. But lately, because I’m feeling better from my illness more everyday, I’m able to get out and about the live. So I don’t post on my blog everyday and it doesn’t stress me now. I haven’t been able to live my life properly for 6 years due to illness and now I’m taking every opportunity.
As you should! Congratulations on your increasing wellness!
I love this. We had a similar experience last night. It was kind of romantic to be disconnected…I want to try and incorporate more of that into our lives. Thanks for a thoughtful post. I love your Wellness tops but forgive you for anytime it can’t happen.
Love it! Yes, incorporating time where you are unplugged is a beautiful things. Appreciate your support–and comments! Thank you!
