“New goals demand new eyes which see them and a new heart which desires them.” Carl Jung
In every aspect of life and nature there are cycles of rest and activity, stillness and movement, ebb and flow. When we honour these natural rhythms, we nurture our balance and wellbeing. Women naturally give so much of themselves away, and feel guilty needing or asking for times of self-care or solitude to restore their energy. Today’s culture often encourages and applauds an imbalanced lifestyle that focuses on constant busyness and the endless pursuit of more. We are subtly (and sometimes not so subtly) pulled in the wrong directions, with a never ending to do list to fill the void of not feeling good about ourselves.
When restlessness whispers divine discomfort is pulling at our attention; perhaps it’s the longing for a way to connect back to the source that energizes, a yearning to simplify life, an opportunity to explore the unexplored. The first half of life was about collecting things, relationships, and rewards. Far too often, we hang on to people, things, and events long past their expiry date. The second half that isn't defined by a number, it is a physical, spiritual, and emotional journey that involves the process of letting go, simplifying and uncovering our true essence.
Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it. ~Scott Peck
