From My Head to My Heart

Hello, I took a must needed break from social media through the summer.  I am back and want to share why I took the break and what I learned.  It was around my birthday in May.  My life was stressful and I was not intentional in my actions.  I just reacted to everything.  Mindfulness wasn’t in my actions.  I was reacting day to day to people, events, and news from my head not my heart.  So, I had to stop.

During the summer I took time to reevaluate my life.  I started therapy and began writing in my journal again.  I learned that I was such a people pleaser and codependent that my life was absorbed with others needs.  My needs were not even known to me.

So, I began looking at what my heart needed and wanted.  I found that I needed to be by the ocean and I hadn’t been lately.  IMG_1569

I also became aware that I wasn’t stopping and noticing the beauty around me.

I spent time with family and friends.

I also began writing again and hope one day to have a biographical fiction to publish.

I learned from this hiatus from social media and my unintentional life that I miss a great deal when I react instead of being present and let my heart lead me.  When I do that I can appreciate so much in my life every day.
