New Year New Moon New Me
It's my birthday today.
It falls right at the same time people are starting their new year's resolutions and filling up all my favourite exercise classes.
A new year, in more romantic-poetic
another trip around the sun
it's a time for reflection + for looking forward. It just so happens that both of my new years fall within a few days of each other.
31 has been one of my most unhealthy years I think. My physical + mental health, and hell I'll even throw in spiritual + emotional health hasn't been where I want it to be. Little things get me way too down + I just don't feel in control of my heart + spirit + body in the way that feels like
It's not that there wasn't so many wonderful things this year. But I'm not sure I got to enjoy them to my maximum capacity.
So I'm setting my heart's intentions to regain my feelings of beauty inside + out.
Kyle woke me up this morning with a kombucha + juice + told me that my gifts this year has a theme.
He got me a gold Möbius strip necklace made by a local designer, Wolf Circus, because it is infinite, bending + flowing, like the moon. (and a moon calendar)
Does this asshole get me or what?
I think I'm ready for a lunar eclipse in my birth month. Coming through a moment of darkness to find light on the other side. A reset.
There are two full moons this month.
Bright + wild.
And I tried to start this morning with the calming, soothing moon salutation practice. But I didn't read the description closely enough and instead I started with a rejuvenating mystic moon practice. Listening to "Fourth of July" by Sufjan Stevens. It was perfect.
Happy birthday to me. Girl, go get this.
