Hello again! I’ve regretfully been MIA for a while. If you don’t know, end of May I quit my job to start my own consulting business (That’s the exciting news!). And it’s been a little crazy over here. I have the tendency to put my focus all on one thing and let others slide, in this case my spiritual and personal sides of life.
I restarted a podcast called the Intentional Advantage by Tanya Dalton. She absolutely hates the idea of work-life balance, it’s not reasonable. In one episode she compares life to riding a bike. If you are completely upright and balanced, you don’t go anywhere. You have to lean left or right at times to turn. This is like leaning into different areas of your life. But, of you lean to heavy or to long, you will fall!
This last part is what stuck with me. I’ve been leaning too heavy and too long into my work side and am in danger of falling if I don’t bring balance back. So, here I am! I’m getting up earlier to do my morning rituals. I’m going to bed earlier to do my lunar rituals. I’m seeing aside time daily to check in to the coven. I might more be as active as before but I’m making a promise to myself to at least be present for a few minutes a day.
Bonus points for being diagnosed with ADHD during this period of time at almost 41, lol. I have a follow up with a psychiatrist in November (earliest I could get in) to discuss treatment and next steps. At least now I know what some of my issues are.
TL:DR: I was out of balance but am putting measures into place to stop neglecting my spiritual side. And I was diagnosed with ADHD but have to wait almost another month before seeing a psychiatrist.
Blessed Be and have a great Tuesday!
