So, the weekend before last, I did something I probably wouldn’t have done had I not been on this journey to self-healing/self-love.
I got a little…spontaneous. *said in my most seductive voice with wiggled brows* hehe.
Life was getting overwhelming, my kids were acting like the wild monkeys they are, and I had just wrapped up on the last book of my series. In a sense, I felt accomplished that I had written so many words in one year, but at the same time I felt sort of lost and didn’t know what to do next since I was no longer writing or working on that series.
That’s so bad, right? The fact that I rely so heavily on writing to feel complete? Not that writing isn’t my favorite thing to do (because it is) but I knew I had to find something to do that would fill my soul up, even if it were only for a few hours. Did I have to come out of pocket? Yes. Was it worth the spiritual investment? HELL YES. I got to get away. I laughed. I got a little tipsy. I ate an amazing meal. I danced with my fiancé. I sipped on coffee ever-so-peacefully the morning I left and stared at the skyline. It was bliss and I loved every single moment of it. I drank it up like it was the finest wine and cherished every moment in that room with my fiancé.
There isn’t much to this post, other than to encourage more spontaneous moments. I will encourage people to take that trip, or jump in a lake butt naked, or even to buy the shoes because, Damn, girl! You are rocking those!
One thing people forget is that life is way too short. We have to live in the moment. We can’t get so caught up with work and stress that we forget who we are.
As a wiser person would say, we are working to live, not living to work. We were not put on this earth to be slaves to a job. We were put here to live the life we were given, so let’s do it, yeah? Next time you’re feeling like life is too much, grab it by the balls and figure out what sets your soul on fire, and then slay it! Live it up! Free yourself. I promise you, it is so, so worth it and a moment you will never forget.
