Last week was VERY difficult. I don't yet feel free to explain exactly what is happening, but it is shaking my world.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing: the way I've been living has been unsustainable for some time, & it needed to change. I am experiencing profound peace in the midst of it all--a moment-by-moment clinging to God & a sense of safety at the deepest level.
I'm sorry to be cryptic; eventually I'll be able to say more.
This week our challenge in the Heart-Healthy Bootcamp is to be proactive in reducing stress. Always needed! The hourly reminders to "get up & move" that I've programmed into my work computer are serving me well in this way. Just now when the 11:00 one came up, I stood up, opened my window blinds all the way, & took big marching steps in place & swung my arms wide as I gazed out at the sky. It felt great!
I think I'll add a "breathing break" for half a minute or so after each movement break . . . just taking big breaths & giving thanks for my life.
Thank you all for being my Sparkfriends!
