I’m back from my 2-week journey through India.
I turned 40 last week. (Thanks to everyone who helped me celebrate!)
Everything feels … different.
It’s hard to explain.
I saw things in India I’d never seen before.
Felt things I’d never felt before.
Ate food I’d never tasted before.
Bought a silk caftan I’m so excited to wear (OMG so pretty).
Wore bindis on my face.
Sweated my ass off.
I planned to write this post and record a podcast episode with this theme for a few months now. I even wrote a good part of it when I was in India and thought I’d finish the piece last week … but I simply didn’t have the space inside myself for it.
Self-care had gone to another level during my time in India … and I didn’t want to revert back to unhealthy habits of pushing myself too hard in a quest to prove myself to the world.
My theme during this cycle is WORTH, TRUTH + LETTING GO.
I’m honoring this even when it feels hard.
What are you ready to honor even though it may feel hard?
What new moves are you ready to make?
Questions to ponder today …
You may wonder why I am so obsessed with India. My answer >> she speaks to my soul.
The book I read by Stanley Wolpert called “India” captures my feelings pretty well …
“Ah, India, who can fathom your depths or reconcile your complexities?”
She’s mysterious, beautiful, heartbreaking and oppressive.
Grand, dilapidated, simple and confusing.
She’s everything and nothing all at once.
And she set the stage for the ushering in of the next decade of my life and the next level of my teachings.
Here’s what flowed through me on the evening of the FULL MOON (May 10, 2017) about India, Sobriety + Turning 40. Soak it up ...
