sometimes, you have to loosen your grip on what you love.
Hmmmm....this feels so brave.
I keep hearing/reading/thinking about the fallow time as necessary...and I do believe that. Mostly? I think? The Death card in the tarot and all that.
But to have the courage to actually stop. ("Dead in my tracks" is the phrase that jumps to mind.) To just stop the efforting and allow the vines to grow around me as I stay still. Yikes, that feels terrifying...and terrifyingly potentially liberating.
I hope you'll someday come back and report in from your experience. And I hope that reading your commitment encourages me to give it a try.
I didn’t see that coming, don’t be gone too long. I going to miss it
oh no - I really enjoyed reading that and didn't anticipate what was to come. But I understand where you're coming from. I've been a big believer in 'emptying out things', letting them be, "surrendering to the universe" - so I totally get it. But hopefully you'll be back soon - with the same old new woo. Whatever shape that woo takes...
Do what feels best for your soul:). Even great couples take a break before getting back together. Time away can be just what you need. Way to follow your heart.
I hope your break is exactly what you need. We all need that fertile space sometimes don’t we? I’ll look forward to seeing what you return with, whenever that is.
oh i think this is BRILLIANT!! yes...let it go ... see what pops up when it pops up how it pops up. Life without guardrails and structure can become addictive ;)
see ya on the new less traveled roadway
Beautifully written exit. I hope your time off is just as lovely.
I have a lot to say about this, I'm going to email you soon, my lovely friend. You and I are experiencing the world, our creativity, in a similar way. I've been "dark" for about a month now (not creating content, not working on The Rebis). I think it's perfectly natural to embrace a winter cycle, buuuut it feels fucking terrifying to admit it and to actually honor it. I agree with Amy, this is brave. (Thanks, Amy, I appreciate that perspective!)
