Turns out, my next right thing includes more writing. More creating. More TikToks. More singing. More reading. More sleeping. More dancing. More laughter. More fun.
Adapted from several sources including MakseLife and Emily P. Freeman's Next Right Thing Journal, I try my best to do a monthly (and best practice- weekly) reflection. In that reflection, we should ask ourselves:
As I reflect on the past 6 months of my life, I wonder where the hours and the days have gone. I made such a huge life change that it almost feels like I experienced some type of time warp. The only way I can describe it is by framing those 6 months as a rebirth, a metamorphosis, but also... a hibernation, a recharge, an INHALE.
When we run so fast and so hard for so long, we don't know how to stop.
We have to schedule time to cry and time to laugh.
Time to talk to a friend uninterrupted and time to touch our spouse.
Now that I am seeing patients closer to their last days than their first, I know deep in my soul that I will never resume that pace.
The little things are the big things.
The best things in life are free.
Sleep is a beautiful thing.
All the cliches are true.
So in reflection, I deem:
I encourage you to have a Fall Reset. Fall Reflection. Fall Recharge.
Holidays will be here soon and being less stressed and more rested is GOLD.
Allow yourself an inhale this October.
Shed your dead skin. You know what needs to go.
And if you can't even think about focus or reflection, just stay on the couch scrolling.
It worked for me.
And now I'm back. 🥰
