💫 Kombucha 💫
Over the past few months I took a “break” from hustling to ... live. To breathe. To ground. To embrace stillness like never before. Even though I worked in the holistic arena, I was working in the same manner as when I worked for others in a professional business setting. Always rushing, always trying to prove something or become somebody. All of a sudden my body said STOP! STOP! This is madness, the addiction to business and to becoming as a way to escape life. Even “healing” can be an addiction. 🍃 So ... I began making kombucha (pictured here). I began exploring all of the trails in this part of the state. I cleared out my calendar from events and workshops. My clients and students were confused, and it didn’t matter if they could understand or not. To be honest - it still doesn’t! Those who are meant to work with me will find me. I know this to be true. 🍃I craved the stillness to hear my heartbeat. I craved silence. And I still do. I thought that this would be a reset, so that I could go back to “work” recharged. Now I understand that it’s a whole new world. A whole new way of life. 🍃 There’s no way I can or will ever go back to the chaos of rushing out of the present moment.
I’ve retreated into the woods to re-learn how to be human. How to take walks with my husband without thinking of a to-do list or marketing procedure to get more clients. How to enjoy my spirituality without immediately thinking of how I can “brand” it. 🍃 Today, with a deep breath, I recommit to stillness. It is where I have room enough to enjoy myself. To feel the life that is pulsing, breathing around me. To be alive. 🍃 And damn does it feel good!
