It's been quite a while since my last post. About 2 1/2 months in fact. I haven't disappeared. I've been healing. I've been putting all my energy into trying to nourish myself, be gentle, allow time and space for recovery and growth. All non-essential energy-using things went to the back burner. I had to really focus in on my priorities, and when I thought about writing, it felt like too much energy. And instead of beating myself up about it, I just gently put it to the back burner and told myself it was ok.
My healing and growth has really mirrored the growth outside this spring. Just like my garden, I've found myself slowly but surely returning to life. I've slowly been feeling a bit better day by day, and I feel a sense of returning to myself. Returning to life. The transformation is constant and I'm trying to take it day by day, but for the first time in a long time I feel hopeful that my time to bloom and be back in my fullest version of myself is close on the horizon.
