Isn’t it a bit ironic that the last apple was about health, and then the day I was sick, and I had to pause from this practice for a whole week?
As if my body wanted to remind me that to write or think about something is not the same as doing it.
A lesson is learned only once it becomes actions.
And my body reminded me just that.
I was so focused on some aspects of my life that I forgot about others.
I wasn’t whole. As a result, my defences were low, and I catch a terrible cold that forced me to stay away from those things that were so important and urgent.
And you know what?
The world didn’t stop.
While I was lying on the couch thinking of all the things I couldn’t do, the world kept going on. Some of the things I thought were so important and urgent were not. Projects that I thought would stop without me kept going on.
How many weights am I carrying that I don’t have to?
How often do I take ownership of something only to feel important?
I always believed there is great power in simplicity and subtraction.
Yet, it’s not so easy to transform such a belief into behaviours.
Luckily, my body sometimes is way smarter than me.
