I was thinking about life's cycles.
My husband reminded me that even nature goes through a renewal period. Now is the "death" in nature and Spring brings rebirth.
Then, I caught Will Smith on Oprah and he said basically the same thing. That we think of life in a straight line of birth, life, death. But we should see it as a circle where those three things keep repeating. We experience death of people, death of old habits, etc. and must use them as a chance to recreate.
I remember going through a dark time like this last year and was trying to find it in my blog. I ran into this post from last year.
I know that my life's work is hard, yet fulfilling. But I must find time for renewal BEFORE I experience the feeling of loss/death. I can't keep waiting until my tank is on "E" before I refuel.
I am worthy of a break.
I am worthy of pampering.
I am worthy of the best in life.
I am capable of achieving great things.
