Women need space and silence. We too quickly give away our energy. There’s something about holding that richness.
Today my body reminded me of this truth.
I had a week full of ups and downs, lots of new contacts and yesterday more phone calls than usual.
Although I did my Taoist exercises and remembered to breathe I woke up with lots of tension in my neck and a terrible headache.
Nothing I did seemed to help – I don’t take painkillers – and my todo-list was full.
So I had a nap and did more exercises in the afternoon – and it got better at last.
I will give myself more space, so no plans tomorrow, just me-time.
What gives me space and helps is writing. Writing connects me to my thoughts, emotions, I can explore new opportunities, I can have adventures – on paper everything is possible.
Writing gives me my energy back. Writing puts me back in my power.
Writing is therapy and artform. No matter how I feel – excited, calm, sad, angry, in love or heartbroken – writing clears, writing soothes, writing is what makes my heart sing.
What do you do to claim space and silence? What makes your heart sing?
