How are you starting again?
Just before the new years eve, I did a short silent mindfulness retreat at home to welcome the new year in. I had a very busy end of the year and so when I stopped; the mind was unsure what to do with itself.
It got lost.
I notice the same lostness now as I reengage with social media and the work life, as I’ve been mainly offline for the last few weeks.
What should I say?
This is change.
In the retreat and as I do now, I’ve learned to allow in all my feelings and thoughts. Sometimes I get caught up with them and most of the time, I notice them.
I am present to them.
It is the ability to notice and be present which has helped me and the clients I support to be with change, uncertainty and the willingness to adapt.
By noticing the lostness, there is also the option to respond to it.
What I have found helpful is just to do one simple act or movement, the next step, even if it does not quite make sense rationally.
I find doing something joyful can really help with this.
The thing that brings me joy is connection.
Thank you all for the comments and connections I have made on LinkedIn and how they have contributed towards starting again in each moment.
I’m starting again by sharing my new LinkedIn photo – thanks to Kirsten Groeneveld www.ineenflits.nl for the photo
What brought you joy over the festive period?
