As We Rest, We Can Remember to Breath, We Can Reflect & Renew, We Can Be

The Lows, The Highs, and The In Betweens...

OOhhhweee so I don’t know about you, but on rainy days like today sometimes it feels good to just stay in a slump…I’m talking no makeup, partially stay in PJs…come up with random meals  to eat and be okay with not smiling too much and not communicating well – if you even choose to speak at all. And to be honest, Kicking it in the slump is what rejuvenates me for the next day – be it sunny outside or not. Now I know what you might be thinking….You? No way! Not smiling…and to that thought I respond – “HA! * Cue Erykah Badu * Didn’t Cha know, Didn’t cha know?!” 

Yes, I too experience the Lows, the Highs, and the In Betweens. But something that I have come to embrace about myself is that it’s okay, doesn’t necessarily mean I need to change my routine or crave some one to talk to..I just might be experiencing a transition, much like the inclement weather that occurs throughout the year. One day in the week, the sun may shine bright as can be, highlighting the leaves on the trees, lighting up the peaks of waves while breezing down PCH, and another day might be grey in sky, light drizzles and puddles galore, while another day could be a constant rain, clouds hiding the picturesque mountains, and flooding on the freeways. 

Such is life…and my mood – especially in the winter time. Oh Winter Season – a great time for Svadhyaya ( Sanskrit for the Study of Self). How do I respond to each of the different days? What are my patterns of behavior? Do I tend to stay inside or want to be outside depending on the Pop ups of Sunshine or Razzle Dazzle of the Rain? How connected is my breath, do I spend the day with intention or lack the energy to get as far as intent? Do I feel okay with an overall choice to rest so that rejuvenation may follow? These are all thoughts I am pondering now, and at the same time loving the fact that with this restful day, here I am at 6PM able to ponder and type it all out for a Blog I’ve had the intention of posting since January 2024. The irony! Hahaha Literally being revealed as I type. Grateful for Svadhyaya, rainy days, those good ole Lows, Nice Highs, and wavering wonderful in Betweens. 

Hope you’re getting to enjoy your rainy days this Winter Season and riding those waves of change, transition, and reflection as they come.
