Ever had to untangle something? A string of christmas lights? A necklace? A skein of yarn? I don’t mind it – I actually find it calming. Well, when it’s an inanimate object.
I’ve spent the last while unwinding myself – shedding layer on layer of anxiety and worry and old patterns of thinking. In the last week, I’ve slept and ate more than I have in years – and I’m finally feeling quite human.
Here it is – Friday night – kids in bed – doors locked – I’ve said everything I needed to say and done everything I needed to do – for today. I’m actually looking forward to sleep tonight – The relaxation of the past few days has paid off – the knots in my neck and shoulders have completely melted away, and my body is working its way quietly into alignment again. It’s amazing how much energy you have when you’re not braced for impact 24/7. I can’t remember the last time I felt this safe and quiet. Maybe I’ll dream tonight.
