With that said, here is a list of this past week's highlights!
This past weekend I was asked by my doctor to lay low and not do much work. He said the reason I wasn't getting better from this terrible, no-good, awful cold was because I wasn't resting. At first, I was upset because I am not very good at resting or sitting still. However after an hour, I revisited the idea with a more grateful heart. It was an opportunity to slow down and listen to my body.
|Pieces of my meditation altar!|
I have been thinking about creating a meditation altar for a while now and while I was visiting my parents, I was able to go to Andover Metaphysical Bookstore, Circles of Wisdom near their home. I found some beautiful pieces as well as a shelving system at Pier 1 Imports for the altar itself! IT. IS. PERFECT. I often have trouble meditating and in creating this space, it allows me to find my center.
|Sleepy Puppy, Apollo|
Another blessing is our kitty Digger! He has finally begun to adjust to our new home even though we've been here since July, and is beginning to cuddle even more than ever now. It is so nice to have him back in full swing - fitting in and adjusting to everything.
