Growth can be permanent or temporary but does require work, I may try things on for size and decide they just don't fit with who I am. This is the time of year for growth, and a great time in my life for growth. It is amazing watching my boys as they grow and change, try things on. It really brings it all home and I am so enjoying taking it all in. Taking in the process in my life, taking in the process in the lives of others, is just amazing to observe. Having my daily self care rituals truly helps me stay grounded in the moment, and rooted in my life, rooted in the things that I know to be true for me, while at the same time providing a base for trying on new things.
As I do try new endeavors, I find that I need periods of rest as well. Maintaining my rituals, and caring deeply for myself, provides a constant refueling. Taking it all in at times doesn't look like an active process. I need down time to evaluate how things are going, check in with myself. But it is all good. The growth and the reflection, progress toward a truer sense of self.
Beautiful candle and charger. Gift from a friend, and I love it. It is just so peaceful.
