We’ve all heard that life is not about the destination, it’s about the journey and at times it feels like the transport we take is driving a bit too fast and needs a bit of a check up and service…!
Like so many of us I have been spending a fair bit of this year contemplating my life and where I am going. I also had some pretty major milestones (turning 50 for one and reaching menopause for another…). And tomorrow my first child will graduate from high school. Yes, that’s right he will graduate! Plus bizarrely he tells me that he is also singing a Cat Stevens song on stage with the teacher’s band…?!
And I will be hooked up to my computer to watch this event Live and on Facebook. Not quite what I’d anticipated after years of watching Lucas singing in Kindy productions, battling it out in Spelling bees (now that is stressful!) and racing around the track in the 800m at Sports Carnivals.
But as my friend Sue said this week – at least you can cry without anyone seeing you. But forget crying, I reckon I will be convulsing..! Yup, the thought of seeing Lucas and his peers going up on stage to receive their leaving certificates or whatever it is they receive will probably see me go thru a box of Kleenex. And wow it went so fast. Primary school was a slow burn, but High School – that’s a whole new level – it just raced by in the blink of an eye.
So life goes by quickly and we owe it to ourselves to take time out to care for our wellbeing and feel calm and centered. So I hope you are able to take some time out, do some yoga, go for a walk, enjoy a nourishing yoga relaxation, or practice some tranquilising pranayama – do something to keep yourself not just healthy physically, but mentally healthy too. These actions can help us press pause on our journey through life to reflect and enjoy the scenery… Let me know in the comments below how you press pause on your life. Love Katie X
