This evening I spent hour after hour trying to catch up on work as I am recovering from being sick for almost a month. I am almost caught up and it feels like a great relief.
Self-Love would tell me I need to finish my work in the morning and give my body a rest, as it does so much for me. My passion would tell me to push through so I will have more time to do things tomorrow.
Passion can be a tricky thing—so tonight I play with the muse of the trickster telling me I am passionate about my work and want to complete it because I deeply care about myself and client’s. I also know that my new found passion is learning to love and take care of myself and hopefully one day be passionately in love with myself.
Tonight I chose this passion to self-love and go to bed over the other as I know self care must come before any other to re-fuel my spirit and soul. Tonight I leave you with the lyrics from a unknown artist.
May you walk in beauty
each and every day
May you walk in beauty in a sacred way
May the beauty of the air
help you lift your prayer
May the beauty of the fire
fuel your sweet desire
May the beauty of the Earth
bring you sweet rebirth
Love and light,
