I’ve been away from here, but much more present in real life. This is a blessing because usually it is the other way around…
During this time of year (right before my birthday) I used to struggle to stay present and I would write posts in this blog to ground myself in the present moment. Some posts would be short and others long. There were even times when I would reblog past posts to remind myself of the progress that I had made.
Lately, I have been grounding myself through a routine. Coffee in the morning followed by a workout shortly after. Those are my two main staples. After that comes work, then chores, and time in the garden. Some other activities and memory making with my love, then evening tea before a bath or shower then off to bed I go…
There are plenty of spontaneous moments mixed in there too.
Today, we assembled our newly acquired trampoline! We found out that they are rare on the island even to buy brand new. There are even years when trampolines don’t even get delivered here so anytime they are for sale on the FB market they usually sell out swiftly.
This week, I got to reconnect with one of my dearest friends. We haven’t seen each other since 2007, but have kept in touch through letter-writing and social media. Some seasons we are closer and others farther. It was a joy to catch up with her and I am so happy that we have connected once again.
Where have you been lately?
