I'm writing this post hours before my boyfriend, Ballard, and I begin the Inner Art Creations: West Africa Project (to watch our latest update video, click here). The car service is picking us up in almost exactly 90 minutes and then all the packing, preparing and organizing will come to an end.
This project is a year and a half in the making and it is incredibly to be in this moment now, just before it becomes reality.
The past few weeks have been a gorgeous blur. In addition to preparing for our journey to West Africa, we traveled to Rhode Island to visit family and to Texas for a wedding, we connected with local friends in NYC and just yesterday I completed my first school year as the movement special teacher at Barrow Street Nursery School. Amazing!
I feel so honored and blessed - and so very sleepy! We will have a few days to rest up before we get to work so as per usual, the angels have our backs and all is unfolding in the best way possible.
Come Back From the Blur
Throughout the past few weeks I've been reminded of the importance of recording daily life. When life becomes so full, it's easy to get lost in the blur. But when you take the time to reflect each day, to sift through, to celebrate, to acknowledge - then the blur becomes a collage of beautiful snapshots, stepping stones and anchors.
Today's practice is a writing activity that simply provides you an opportunity to reflect on all you do and all you are. Remember to reflect on the positive just as much, if not more, than on any hiccups.
If you need help getting started, use this prompt:
Today I ____ and it felt ____.
