I apologize for being so absent in my blogs, I have been coast-to-coast over the last few months. I spent Thanksgiving with my family in North Carolina, and returned the beginning of December. In the last few months, I have been incredibly and overwhelmingly busy.. But in the best way possible.
From my grandma’s porch, I wrote my next chapter that will be published next year. I became teary eyed, because every time I have written a piece that was going to be published, I’ve always written from a pivotal time in my life. When I wrote this chapter out of love, I wrote it from a loving space in my heart, but also from a loving and welcoming home as well.
Experiencing an actual season of fall felt like I was living in a painting. The foliage of the trees were so beautiful and almost felt unreal, the breezy days of raining leaves felt like I was in a mirage. I have never seen or experienced such beauty or appreciated nature as much as I did watching the leaves change color, and fall in such a beautiful way. As I watched the leaves fall each day, it reminded me how beautiful it was to let go.
I let go of any stress and expectations. I lived in the moment of each day. I woke up early in the morning, made myself coffee, and watched the cows graze, I got to feed my friend Donkey in the pasture behind my grandma’s house. My family and I watched some classic Christmas movies, and best of all, we got to celebrate Thanksgiving together.
I was so thankful for this trip, as it was a much needed step back from reality. Before I left for my trip, I had a huge book launch, 365 Days of Self-Love. At the time, I was struggling to get out of bed because of the amount of physical pain that I was in. As it turns out, I ruptured a disc in my spine. I am on my way to healing and recovery. There are still some struggles and challenges along the way, but I am taking life day by day. I am thankful for my journey of healing, and learning how to heal my mind and my body.
Can you believe that 2021 is coming to a close? I am in disbelief that this year is almost over. But I am ready to embrace the new and exciting changes to come in 2022.. Especially for the next chapter I will publish! If I don’t get to write before the holidays, I wish you all a season of love, joy, a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
