It’s a strange feeling as my workouts drastically decrease in intensity and length… it feels so counterintuitive to slow down, when only two days from now, I’ll be giving it all I’ve got. Muscles resting, thoughts percolating, hopes and deep wisdom integrating.
It’s like the calm before a storm.
There’s really nothing left to do to prepare. You’ve battened down the hatches, brought the flower pots in, stocked up on groceries. Now it’s time to savor that one little patch of deep blue sky, the smell of ozone in the air, the way the trees bow down as the wind picks up, the cows calling in their young… and breathe. BREATHE.
It’s time to let go and let the universe take over.
