Monday morning after a long Easter weekend... although for some in this household the weekend stretches one more day. I set my alarm for 5:15 and although awake I did not immediately rise up. It is always a internal dialogue for me. One that needs to change but, today I opted to sleep a bit longer as I had a restless night. Sleeping in past 6am generally means I lose out on quiet time to reflect on the day; for prayer and meditation which is essential but, in this case since I am the only one up and who needs to be up... it still works out. What gets sacrificed is the workout time.... but, I am gearing up for this 2nd quarter battle. I will use this as the situation I bring to the coaching class. It is a real challenge.
This weekend was very quiet. It was just what was needed after a rather tumultuous March where it seemed every weekend I was on the road or at the very least not at home. There were plenty of silent moments. I was able to study and reflect on the learning in my course. I had good conversations with my sisters and my husband. I was able to check in with myself and listen to what was happening inside and what I was feeling and experiencing.
I have always been a fairly intuitive person. If I listen and heed what my intuition is saying it generally works out.... the story may not be exactly as i envisioned which I have learned is OK. The challenge is to actually sit and listen. Sometimes I get caught up in activity and forget to listen. This year since my word is DECISIVE - I need to be aware and check in regularly with myself; trust my intuition and take action quickly.
