Yesterday marked a milestone in my life. It was the last day of business for my shop of the last ten years: Purlescence Yarns It was a rousing party and much fun was had by all! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to chat, purchase items, and bid a fond farewell to the creative space we built.
This morning I find myself wandering around my house with some interesting feelings. While we still have packing up to do at the shop, the time there is now just tying up loose ends and moving out. Consequently, I am experiencing both a feeling of lightness and a sense of being lost. I notice myself starting to ramp up into the tension of "I Must Get (name activity) Done ASAP!" and must remind myself to breathe, to center, and remember that I no longer have that pressure in my life. I can afford to sink into a spinning project without feeling guilty about taking time away from some critical business task. My wonderful offspring, Kit, keeps reminding me to Dance Party whenever the stress creeps up. I feel so grateful to have such wonderful family!
Today is about resting and recovering from the last few weeks of mad activity that led up to the final retail day. I know I that I must take time to rebuild myself. I cannot continue to do the Work of my heart without replenishing the stores of my body temple. The wear and tear of the last few years has taken quite a toll, and it is time to find balance.
After a nap I'm sure I'll find this new adventure much more exciting!
