A Second Wind

What a year it’s been! Back in January I decided to start to incorporate more self-care for and put myself on my list of things to do. As we fall into fall this week I feel as if I am getting a second wind.

In July I decided I had had enough and went on a food cleanse for 3 weeks. Let’s just say I was not enthused in the least to do this. However I knew it had to be done. Remember this was about putting me first on my list of things to do. It ended up being the very best thing to do. It wasn’t as hard as my mind had me believe. 15 pounds lighter enabled me to have movement and space in my body, mind and spirit. It was something totally different and new and it just felt good.  Now it’s September and fall will begin this week. I feel as if I am getting a second wind, a second act, or another chance. I have let my leaves fall and I continue to lose weight, feel better, have more energy, and space within my body.

I am grateful for all of it, and proud of myself for getting to this place. What have you done this year to free up space in your body, mind and spirit? Feel the winds, let go of your leaves that no longer serve you as Dr. Seuss says “Oh The Places YOU Will Go”.
