taking the edge off


living true

hello all, how’s your week going? if it’s anything like mine, you’re probably super busy with summer and trying to keep it all together.



spending time with my family gave me some introspective/perspective downtime and that’s always good for shaking things up. i’ve been going full force for so many years that it seems i have developed a sharp edge, maybe i’m a little too rushed, maybe even (gasp)! brusque.



i’ve always been a bit of a party/work animal and am starting to realize just how much i take my body for granted, and how very delicate it really is. we’re only water after all!



between the brain waves,



the synapses



nerves and neurons, we’re just little whispers of a thing yet we’re so hard on ourselves in every way!



there’s so much i don’t know about how my own body works. funny to be sort of a stranger in it since it’s right here all day every day!


now that i’m back home i’m going to try to be a bit more conscientious about this little temple that’s my one and only possession that matters; what i put in it physically as well as mentally, by concentrating on what i think about and what i eat and drink.




so here’s to taking care, hope you get a little time to yourself this weekend, i know how much you do and am sending good vibes your way this thursday!

    So wise of you to slow down a bit. But not too much. I love what you do and don’t want you to stop completely! I’ve had a few health challenges lately and it is so true, you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone.
