November is here with its the coziness and colours. It’s time to reflect and be present. It’s also the gratitude month. A long time I don’t write a gratitude list, I think about things I’m grateful for, but I haven’t put them on paper. Now it’s the right time for it.

Have a blessed November!

noticing how vulnerable i’m right now. a look, a word, a piece of clothing can make me sad and unfocus. i want to cry and to hide, i want that the night arrives fast so i can sleep and forget the day. i’m sure this is part of the recovering process. i’ve never imagined that recovery could have many phases, seems there is no end.  i hope a better phase starts soon.

hugs,

E.

i’m proud of myself! i’ve been blogging every day for 31 days! wow! it’s so awarding to notice that i’m really doing it. i’ve though in giving up many times, in the first days, but now it is part of my routine. i love to take a photo and write few words about the photo or my mood in relation to it.

this red rose is for you, for being in this journey with me.

hugs and love,

E.

Listening

img_2809

Taking easy, listening to the wishes of my body. I’ve learned I can’t hurry. I need to stop and check with my body. Listen to all parts of it and respect my limits.

My mantra is STOP, BREATHE AND LISTEN. I put these words together a few years ago. My intention was to listen to the things around me, mostly the sounds of nature. Now I know the most important sounds I need to listen are inside me; in my mind and in my body.

My morning has started slowly. I was still in bed at 9 am! I did heart space meditation that my friend Delicia posted on her blog today. It’s a simple but powerful meditation. You can find it here.

I hadn’t practiced yoga for more than 6 months, today my body asked for it. I felt ready to start this practice that was part of my morning routine for many years.  I was surprised at how well my body responded to the poses, of course, they weren’t perfect, but good enough to know that I’m ready to practice yoga again.

Now, after a healthy breakfast, I’m writing this blog post for you. How is your Friday going on?

Love,

E.

 

 

 

My Art Journaling Practice

Hello,

It is a lovely evening here in my part of the world. I can see the trees, they have a luscious green, and listen to the birds while I write this post. It has rained for the major part of the day, the plants needed it, we had few days of heat and dryness this weak. I like to listen to the sound of the rain, it’s calming, and the smell of the earth after the rain is refreshing.

I shared with you my journaling practice last week, you can find it here. This week I want to share with you few pages of my art journaling practice. Sometimes it is easy to express ourselves through images and only a few words, or no words at all.
