Necks direction

neck

Good morning everyone!! Today I struggled to wake, slowly shedding some dream that seemed to have all the answers to my waking questions, as I slipped from sleep into the day. I eventually succumbed to wakefulness, emerging from the nest of pillows and duvet to notice sharply a pain in the neck. It’s a familiar injury that reoccurs from time to time, and I like to joke that my brains are too heavy, but I know that it has a more emotional etiology. So I carefully slipped on my cosy robe, and made my way downstairs for coffee.

It’s another grey day in London, but it’s not raining or snowing; and there is a quietness that feels like a gap in time, though the clocks are still ticking. I sat quietly for a while, just listening to my heart, and noticed those feelings of being stuck in a situation. Of course we are rarely really stuck, we simply struggle with what we have to compromise to move on, sometimes this is just the recognition that things aren’t as they seemed, and sometimes it means letting go of things we must release to move forward. Sometimes it’s just admitting that we’re being stubborn Change can be difficult, that’s not to say that at the same time it’s not exciting and liberating, but when we focus on what we’re releasing rather than where it leads us, it’s tempting to cling to the familiar, hoping it will get better, because we’re unsure of what the future holds for us.

So today I am focusing on the possibilities, and imagining the wonderful adventures just waiting, I’m rubbing my neck and wondering, really, what’s the best that could happen? ..and then I realize that being patient with myself would be a good start, so I’m being careful with my neck, but I’m facing forward, and I’m smiling! I hope you have a wonderful day, whatever you’re up to, and that if you’re making changes, or even just decisions about changes, that you focus on what you’re gaining in opportunities for growth and relish the new directions opening up in front of you!

Blessings & love, Hxx
