Catching up with Myself

Over the summer I spend many weeks in intense engagement with the outside world through teaching, hosting workshops, and traveling. In between, when I’m home at Skyote Mountain, I catch up with myself. Not that I don’t spend time connecting with myself while I’m away – if I didn’t I would not manage those trips and events very well. But it’s very structured time with myself when I’m away, just because there isn’t much time for it. I’m very disciplined while traveling in terms of doing my workouts first thing in the morning, and spending some quiet reflection time just before bed.

When I’m home, it’s all very unstructured, and the time can get away from me. There are so many loose ends that need tying, and various chores that need doing, and emails to catch up on – not to mention going through mail and reading. It’s easier to miss my workouts when they don’t have to be so carefully scheduled. I’m not ready yet to structure my flexible schedule on days at home, but I am exploring how to make sure my workout time does not get lost in the looseness of the full days.

  1. Selene, your meals look lovely as always! Looks like you have reduced your quantity a bit, or am I wrong? I really hope you’re well and getting enough me time. We all miss you heaps at FYM my dear! take care, love Karen

  2. Thanks, Karen! I think I may be a bit lower these past few days -it tends to balance out over the course of a week or so. I feel like I’ve been eating tons of fruit! But I am not tracking calories right now, as my software program for doing that is not available while my laptop is out for repair. So I’m not really sure. I’m so glad you stopped by! I am doing well, but miss all of you over there, too!
