These blog posts are my commitment to you and an honouring of our relationship.....whether you are coming in to see me or not. I have committed to remember you and provide you with musings and information that help to create resilience and hope if you are struggling with things and you're experiencing 'bumps in the road'. And during the very week that is hardest for most people.....I forgot.
I'm sorry. That's all I've got. Seriously. I could make excuses about how busy it's been etc etc, but really, that's just 'stuff'. You matter and my commitment to these blog posts matters and it didn't scream loud enough to supercede my attention being drawn to all of the material things instead. And besides....."I'm sorry with excuses' just feels inauthentic and is lousy to experience on the receiving end .
Yes. I will forgive myself. As I have said often, that is the only way that we move forward. Notice. Forgive. Learn. Decide. Then choose to move forward having integrated the new lesson.
This has inspired me too re: my blog posts for 2017. Mindfulness. As we continue to live in a culture of 'hurry up', 'do more', 'be perfect', 'pretend everything is fine', 'buy more' and negate the importance of our relationship to ourselves and each other.....it continues to be difficult to 'swim upstream' against these constructs and make mindful choices.
So, my 2017 blog posts will be dedicated to mindfulness!
Stay tuned and here's to a more mindful, and hopefully more joyful, New Year as a result.
