Our water heater broke this weekend and we finally got it replaced...and now I have more than 7 minutes of hot water to take a shower with! Hallelujah! I did a REAL contrast shower for some detox support for my lymphatic system (instead of the obligatory one I had to take if I took too long 🤦🏻♀️) and it feels amazing. I always feel so much more awake after a good contrast shower...and not cold at al with all the blood vessel dilation you get after the hot and cold water.
Since it's the fall and things are transitioning down to hibernation, I've been thinking a lot about the endings of things in my life. It's so often that it's easy to feel like endings or hiccups are happening to you and against you. When the water heater started leaking, it was easy to see it as a huge inconvenience, though it worked out as an overall positive thing. How often do we approach the roadblocks and endings in our life with fear and anxiety...instead of seeing them as opportunities to usher something new and better in our lives? I don't have a quick answer for any of this, I guess no one does...but it's worth taking some time to think about. This season of introspection can be really helpful if we choose to see it that way 🙎🏻Alex
