Mid Winter Recess

So here we are, 1 month into the year, about 5 or 6 snowstorms in and if you’re like me, you’re already struggling somewhat to stay motivated. Sure, the first few weeks of the year, I was moving mountains…then somewhere about the third week, the massive energy seemed to dissipate.  I actually read recently that the third Monday of the year is always one of the most depressing days  and when I thought about it, I realized that it really does make a lot of sense.

Anyone that does “process work” is familiar with what we call “the rubber band effect”. You reach this wonderful and unexplainable empowering level of consciousness; you resolve old issues and start anew with a whole new outlook on life.  Then sometime in the upcoming week or 2 there is the contraction. You wonder “Did that really happen?” Obviously, it did, but this is a normal human reaction. The ebb and flow of being human and perfectly imperfect can sometimes psych us out. However, just having the simple awareness of what it is you are going through can make all the difference in the world.
So during our “midwinter recess” while we’re stuck at home shoveling, rearranging our schedules and drying our snowsuits waiting for the change in season to “feel better”  or get motivated again. Don’t waste your time thinking about what you’re not getting done because that will just attract more non-motivation. Instead, while drinking that hot coco, think about where you’ve been and how you got there. Give yourself credit for taking risks and setting goals, no matter how big or how small. Allow yourself to regroup and move onward. For some reason, maybe we are meant to be in this reflective time. Maybe Mother Earth wants us to listen…to her…to ourselves…who knows. What ever the case may be, do your best to stay motivated and when you need some extra motivation take some time to turn inward. Listen to your self, your true self, your higher being. Remember the path you are on, even though its being delayed with the snow we are having, you will still get there…just not at the pace you had planned. And know that is alright….you are always where you are meant to be. The beauty of it is you always have the power to change it if you really want to. *Enjoy my friends*
