There’s something about a slow morning. About embracing the idea of rest and flow.
I remember being in the throughs of my insane work schedule, building my business as fast and as hard as possible. I would go to bed at midnight and wake up at 4am in a complete panic.
Racing through my ‘to-do list’ and springing out of bed to pump my body with as much caffeine as I could get.
One of the hardest things in my journey of detoxing my life of workaholism, has been knowing HOW TO REST. I know it sounds so silly, but many of us have guilt/shame/resistance to rest and going slow. Or we feel like it’s a huge deal to be in rest, like a celebration. What it is really is about carving out intention for rest, we’re not meant to ‘be in harvest’ all the time.
This morning I’m sitting under the fluffy doona laying next to my daughter. Slowly waking up to the world, being gentle with the day’s agenda.
I wonder what it would be like if we were all more intentional with having more slow mornings. Agenda-less days, without any sense of guilt. Being more in the flow that life has for us.
This morning I’m relishing the slow. I know that I have things I need to get done, but right now it’s just being.
