Saturday's, for me, are supposed to be all about letting my hair down and doing as little as possible when it comes to doing things for others. It has recently occurred to me that despite all of my health issues my family lean on me just a bit too much. As my husband pointed out, I really am too kind hearted. With this in mind I planned to extend the Sunday ritual that I have into the entire weekend.
On a Sunday I always do at least one restful thing, mostly it is a little time spent meditating or visualising and it is the only day I ever seem to actually stick to my guns on such things. With the recent Super moon I feel more exhausted than ever, the energies have been greatly amplified and dramas that would never normally be dramas have knocked spots off the usual dramas!
I have had my fill of family daftness this week. I call it daftness, well, because it really was only daftness. The energies of the Super moon seemed to intensify the daftness and turn it something it didn't need to be but it has drained me so much that I thought it was high time I started saying no - more than I do.
You know, I'm full of good advice for others when it comes to problems and dramas in their lives and generally family and friends rally to me for that advice. One of the most common pieces of advice I give is learning how to say no, yet here I am not heeding my own advice and feeling so run down.
So I decided last night that my weekends are now going to be all about relaxation and restfulness and meditation and other stuff like that. Next weekend I will be doing my Reiki level 1 and I want to be in a good space, emotionally, for that.
