Hello there! How are all of your new years intentions coming along? I was doing a good job at getting my new year underway, working through my say goodbye to 2012/hello 2013 .pdf, de-cluttering, putting away holiday decorations, reving up the Vitamix Santa left, and then everything unraveled.
A few nights ago, while assembling a Lego Friend City Park Café with Special K , head and back hunched over hundreds of tiny pieces of Legos, I received a huge bear hug from behind and something crackeled and popped in my upper back. While this mama loved this love offering, my 40 something body didn’t.
So for the past few days, shooting pain down the arm when there is too much tapping on the keyboards, and a similar experience down the back when I sit for too long has not only pinched a nerve, but my work flow. So instead of fighting it, I’ve tried to make friends with this sciatica pain this week.
Curious as to what brought this on, I googled Louise Hay ‘s heal your body website. In her book Heal Your Body, she relates upper back pain to feeling unloved or holding back love. Hmnnn….got me thinking, new year, new opportunities, am I holding myself back from anything? Am I feeling a lack of emotional support? Do I have a hard time asking for help?
I fretted this morning for a bit. “My Tuesday blog! “ “Those emails I must return” my mind went slipping into the spin cycle. Then the tingling of my right palm gave me pause and reminded me to slow down. Slow down and accept what is. A slower pace for right now. The house is messier, this blog will be much shorter, and it is all okay.
So in the spirit of learnings, lessons, and self-growth…how is your year starting off so far? Has anything happened to give you pause? Reflect? Slow down? The best thing I’ve learned when plans de-rail is to just take a deep breathe and love myself. I also know it’s a perfect time to practice receiving and asking for help.
I am still putting the finishing touches on my goodbye 2012/ hello 2013 .pdf and have gotten a few emails about it.
As part of my intention is inviting more community this year, AND to heal my back by infusing it with more LOVE, I would love to gift 5 FREE 15 minute laser coaching if you would like some support with completing your pdf. You can also use your 15 minutes as a clarity laser coaching session to get closer to whatever dream awaits you this year.
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org this week and we’ll jot something in the calendar to get your 2012 completed and 2013 started! My apologies for not having å timedriver installed yet, I’d love some recommendations for a MAC based software (also on my hello 2013 list) Drop me a note below and let me know how your 2013 is so far <3 !
Until next week,
Lots of love!
