I don't know if it's Monday's or the pull from the mega energy that that moon of ours throws around, but what ever you believe, both had me crushed yesterday. I surrounded myself with support, some good uplifting toons suggested by this article, Will This Soundtrack Help Freelancers Manage Their Time Better?, and tried not to beat myself up to much. Tuesday, today, the actual full moon date has got me back into the hustle mode instead of struggle mode. So it goes.
"Struggle mode" was induced by my need to push past some fears around being my truest, best self.
We never know when your inner demons, the patterns, the stories we tell ourselves, will surface and advocate for us to change. For me, it was yesterday (and everyday, since I'm always inviting them to go ahead and TRY ME.) But some days I can rise to the call and sometimes I fall under. BOTH ARE OK. But, I have to be honest....

I got up at 4:30am last Saturday to bring Nick to a bike ride of epic proportions. (He does that on the regular.)

(Actually, this question is very answerable... go watch this weeks Q&A Tuesday with Marie Forleo where she interviews Arianna Huffington about her new book on sleep.

I am advancing in leaps and bounds. Do you feel that energy too? The spring and summer are so potent this year!
These days, I feel like I am learning more than usual. And I want to be better. And I want to make more. And I want to do more, see more, travel, learn, read more, discover more, find out about myself - more. But, in all honesty, all those things happen in life whether we seek them out or not.
