Empty

A bit empty here…no photos to post (forgot my cord!), and running a little low in spirit. I’m in Oregon, one of my most beloved places on the planet, visiting friends and heading to what I can only hope and dream will be a fabulous art retreat. Yet, I’m feeling a bit empty. And a bit stressed with news about work that I got yesterday. I’m distracted now with thoughts of what I “should be doing” and feeling guilty for taking a break. I didn’t sleep well last night, waking up throughout the night feeling anxious. But here I am. In Oregon. About to venture on a retreat I’ve been looking forward to for months. So, I *need* to shift…I need to refocus and bring my attention to “be here now.” If I don’t, when I return to Nebraska, to work, to all of my obligations, I’ll only regret not being present and not enjoying this gift of a retreat. Maybe the universe is unfolding exactly as it should, and perhaps this is the *best* time for me to be away and attending a retreat. I’m on empty and I need to fill up.

    Enjoy Oregon, and enjoy being filled. One of my favorite quotes is by Ray Bradbury: “We are all cups, slowly and quietly being filled. The trick is to know when to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.” Oregon is a lovely place to fill up, and to tip over.

    May you sink into the present and embrace the JOY Retreat, I think it’s no coincidence Liz’s retreats are titled “Be Present” retreats.
