A little wiser today….
I did something revolutionary today by deciding to not talk on the phone all day with that the caveat that I did talk to my sister whose birthday was March 28. I love you sis and know that I love you and I am your biggest cheerleader!
Nevertheless, the impetus behind my silence his was that the Michigan Policy Summit is happening May 10th and April is going to be an extremely busy month for me. So before I faded to black, I wanted to take a day to center myself. I should also mention that my cell phone is my work and business phone so I am literally on the phone from sun up to sun down between meetings.
I hadn’t realized how much I don’t listen to myself until today. I felt like I have been trying to get through to myself but I was so busy dealing with work that I didn’t click over to talk to me. I feel very much at peace with the world right now as I listen to Jamming by Bob Marley with the sweet smell of candles filling the room. Hopefully, I am the last person to catch on to this but if I am not, be intentional about taking time to listen to you. I will have to find a way to make this a regular part of my routine because the unchecked mental voicemails I had were overflowing.
Stay up fam,
