Oh, Lovelies….I’ve missed you guys, I really have!! My week-long meditation hiatus somehow turned into a 2-week absence. I hope you can forgive me. These things just happen from time-to-time I guess. You unplug, you travel, and before you know it weeks have gone by…
To be honest, I’ve been ready to come back to blogging for several days now, but then I suddenly suffered my first true bout of “Writers Block.” I felt incredible pressure to write some epic story of my travels to Canada and my meditation retreat. Every time I sat down to write a post, I felt like I needed to detail the fun, the feelings, the experience…and words just wouldn’t appear. That’s classic writer’s block, right? (Thank goodness I’m not actually a writer!)
So, long story short, I finally realized there is no true pressure. My experience is personal and I can reveal as much or as little as I want. So let me say this – my trip was incredible. Deepak Chopra is an inspiring and wise soul. Whistler, BC is one of the most beautiful places on earth (a must visit – especially in the Summer!) And meditating in nature, detaching, going within and giving yourself permission to just “be” is a gift that all of us deserve from time to time. It doesn’t matter if you consider yourself spiritual, religious, or neither, making time for yourself and refreshing your mind and soul in whatever way you please isn’t useless or selfish – it should be mandatory.
Life is precious and short, so live your dream and don’t settle for anything less!
I hope you can cut me a little slack while I get my blogging groove back.
