My sweet friend Denise (also part of my phd cohort) brought me a fun surprise this week—tarot cards! Tucked away in my office after class (remember we are “scientists!”), she let me play with the cards and explained a bit about their background. I was completely intrigued. One of the cards was so completely accurate—I am carrying an overwhelming burden in the present. [Yes. Yes. Yes.]
So much is happening in my life, so much reflection and learning. I’ve been writing a lot…lots of dig deep soul-inspired musings that I want to share on here. They are lined up on my desktop, but it’s all so “heavy”. Yet, I know, there are others out there on their own journeys who could benefit from these words. The posts will come, the meatier words you expect from me—it’s all here, waiting its turn for my attention.
My focus this weekend will be on this burden I’m carrying. How can I lighten the load? I began to journal about this topic last night and shared my words with my husband. He’s only allowed to look at my journal when I share it with him :). The words were so meaningful to him that he took a photo with his camera so he could read them in the future. For me, that is the best cue that I’m moving in the right direction. I’m listening to myself and devoting value to what I hear.
Share with me, a little message you hear within yourself. What do you hear when you listen?
… I’ve also started to fall in love with instagram. I share snippets of my life that I haven’t captured before, the ordinary and the profound. I love looking at others’ lives and seeing what a beautifully unique community exists. My username is @crubenstein and I invite you to come take a peek and say hello :).
