I read these words by Nancy Leilah Ward a few days ago in her September “energy vibe” report and thought to myself… “thank goodness, it’s not just me!”
I’ve noticed in myself – and heard reports from other people – that there’s a feeling of ennui that many are experiencing. Feeling unmotivated, as if we’re swirling around in an eddy of energy, not going anywhere, just spinning in the same spot. To move out of this, I am receiving messages to do what is fun, what makes me feel good.
September has always felt like a time of doing and newness for me…the result of many years of both being a student myself and then working in the elementary and post secondary educational systems. It’s a time to sign up for courses and think about what activities I want to focus on for the coming winter months. It’s a time to shed summer flip flops and start pulling out the knits, a time to put some structure back into my life.
But this month I’ve been feeling like I’m walking in circles and can’t get quite get a grasp on anything to pull myself out and into a new direction. It feels like I’m in a holding pattern, circling the airport and waiting for a slot, to land.
So…the remedy seems to be, to do something fun! OK, I’m up for that! For me, so much of my fun centers around being creative and today I’m playing with script…as in writing. I’ve joined Kal Barteski in her Script School which started yesterday. I love the easy flow of her script and think it will be fun to add it to my own projects…or just use it as a meditative practice.
And yesterday I had fun with a friend teaching me the basics of jewellery making…which was lots of fun and something I’ve always wanted to do.
"If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good".
As always dear friends, thank you for stopping by…you are a each a beautiful blessing. Stay in wonderment.
