Where are you?

Right now, at this very moment, where are you?

Physical location, headspace, emotionally, spiritually?

Right now I am lying in bed, covers pulled up tight, watching the first season of Stranger Things, and wondering how I can invite God to enjoy it with me. I am home at home rather than at work as my body and mind need continued rest to recover from Covid-19, jet-lag, tournament tiredness, and all of these together.

I am comfortable in this decision, knowing that I need to rest and going about getting that rest.

Emotionally, I’m in a space where I need to choose carefully whether to spend time hanging out with others, or take some time to myself. It’s taking more energy than usual to spend time with more than one or two people at a time at the moment, as my body and mind are requiring a lot of energy reserves to rest and recuperate.

Spiritually I am finding benefit in doing less. This allows space for me to breathe deeply, and seek time with God in prayer, writing, and music.

Wherever you are, in whatever way you find yourself being there, I hope you can find the energy you need to be the beautiful you that you are.

Peace to you dear friends.

    I understand, Hamish. I’m glad you are choosing to rest in every way. I’m an effort to rest in every way you described, I closed my IG accounts yesterday. Fighting with faith includes rest….rest not just physically ( as you need, too!) but in all ways you mentioned. God is with you dear friend. 💛❤️💕

      I am on my way to a bit more of an equilibrium. Sleeping more consistently, writing more regularly, and enjoying many cups of tea in a slow and purposeful manner.

      Thank you for checking in. 🧡
