I’m feeling deep Summer vibes right now. Totally melted-sunk into it. Like sitting deep into chair pose in a hot yoga class when it’s all aligning and feeling good and not awkward and you feel like to you could hold it forever, definitely longer than you know the teacher will ask you to. Strong, flexible, healthy, empowered, it all makes sense and you have it figured out….for that moment, at least.
I’m kind of feeling happy AF. Eating beautiful, clean food, exercising, having fun, soaking in some sun, shopping a little. I have a career and passion projects. I’ve been laughing a lot (I love my friends, I’m grateful for all of them), de-cluttering my apartment and keeping it open and clean, seeing new places. I’m loving the city I live in and the life I get to live here, I’m feeling super blessed and super charged. Not exactly sure why, but these times of life come – I’m high on life and I’m feeeeling it.
Waves, though –
Like even during the crazy happy times the world is still the world and things happen, bad news can come or people you care about can be going through something. So I’ve got waves of feeling happy, content, excited, and then of feeling grounded, my feet on the ground, humble, a touch of sadness even. Maybe it’s compassion.
That all just pushes me into drive and motivation and the need to make my dreams come true. It keeps me in touch with everything I have to work on, improve upon, make time for, make happen for myself. Even when I’m feeling up, I’m never taking it for granted.
It’s like, bad news happens sometimes and the realities of this big-ass, complicated world keep things in perspective. But the punches can’t knock you off your stride, you have to be stronger than that. That’s what it’s all about. That’s the point of having a healthy lifestyle and a routine and always remembering that we’re human. We are not invincible, never, not even during the highs. The key is to ride the highs of feeling amazing and soak it in and enjoy it and feel the inner peace. But then still be in touch with the various different energies that may come – and use that part of the game – as cues, for how to navigate and move forward and know what to do next and where to use your energy.
Because if we’re not moving, we’re dying. We always have to be evolving and looking forward and changing. We need to keep inspired and interested and curious to be happy. We need to give back, and take care. We need to give and take. And move. Eb and flow and navigate. Steer. Course correct. Feel on top of the world and humbled to our knees all at the same time. Always knowing that life is highs and lows, ups and downs and that’s just part of the game.
So use that thought for stability, know that it all just allows for each other – and just keep going. Keep living. Enjoy. Every day is a gift and not to be taken for granted. If we are alive and well then we are blessed. No matter what you’re feeling, ask yourself: what you do with your time and how you contribute, what you do that’s meaningful? If you can’t answer that, find it. If you can, then grow it, make it flourish. Work towards it. Towards something. Work.
Connect, learn, take time for yourself. Over do it. Rest. Exercise the balance of things and find what works. Get in touch with yourself and start to know yourself. And always refine. Don’t get too used to things, keep changing. Diet, habits, relationships, career, passion projects, everything.
This is life, find solace in the weirdness and enjoy the ride. Always be happy, even when you’re not. Cause it’s all good, it’s just the human experience.
