fog and sun

fog and sun

Lately we've had a lot of fog and a lot of sun here on the mountain.

It reminds me of how life can seem so foggy sometimes that it's hard to think the sun is ever going to come out again. Last year was a lot like that for me. In the fog of the pandemic, like a lot of us, I've had a hard time finding the sun.

For me, the sun is coming back through mindfulness. When I started a mindfulness teacher training last year, I began to accept the fog of my feelings and use it as a way to begin to understand myself better. It's giving me a greater appreciation and gratitude for both life's sunny and foggy days.

For most of my life, I would have told you that mindfulness and meditation just weren't for me. I would have said that I'm a doer not a sitter. Well, a lot of that doing was an attempt to cover up a lot of pain.

Mindfulness has taught me how to accept that pain and given me tools help me start to let it go. In the coming year, I'm going to be sharing more about mindfulness here and have a big announcement coming in the spring.

Thank you so much for joining me on this journey. Your support means the world to me.

We also had a pretty incredible wolf moonrise this week. :)
