Keeping UP this March!


Keeping Up this March on Hvar

Holy Cow (or goat, in this case); It’s nearly mid-March and spring on Hvar!

While I spent most of February trying to stay on top of things (and feeling like a semi and sometimes complete failure at that, well, for the most part) the month managed to slip by without me posting a monthly blog post.

Ooops… shame on me! Here’s to celebrating my commitments to myself and my proud accomplishments, right?!

The thing is, I was a bit stuck with the topic for the month of February, which was related to the theme of love, a topic where a vast array of “experts” give all kinds of advice to the point that we often feel inundated with those tips and perhaps even depressed that we are not quite getting it right in one or more areas of the vast categories connected to love and loving relationships.

I didn’t want to add to the overkill, and certainly not make anyone depressed with my impressive insight on the topic (giggle, giggle), although I did want to share some thoughts on love, as that is the path I have chosen to lead me where I am today and it has brought many wonderful rewards and plenty of incredibly moving life lessons, so perhaps I do have something of value to share on the topic, afterall?!

All that in mind, I set about approaching the topic from a less-exploited angle, and I was getting somewhere (though not sure where, in fact, the whole piece was headed)... Admittedly, I never found the time to finish the post (perhaps I’ll get around to it in the future?). It had to do with the incredible love that is Universal Life Force energy and how it has ultimately influenced my path...

Blame it on the baby, blame it on the running list of things to do in preparation for the upcoming retreat season, blame it on the personal crisis I am going through on a daily basis of experiencing poor time-management issues (that surely many new mothers experience, too, right?!)…

Blame it on whatever, but the fact remains, I let myself down and missed the self-imposed deadline, again.

And, guess what? That’s okay, too.

If we don’t fail, it means we aren’t trying. And that means we are not growing. But when we keep on trying, eventually we will get it right! So onwards I go!

March is one of my very favorite and also one of my least favorite months and I am committed to getting a post out there. So here it is. (Allow me to ramble on...)

Why is this important to me, you may ask? There are no blog-police out there ready to arrest a person for failing to share their voice. And perhaps there are very few people actually following my posts, anyway!

The thing is, I do care, because I have made a commitment to freeing my throat chakra so that it flows more openly and meaningfully and broadly, as I am a communicator at heart, though I have not exposed myself intimately in a public way for a very long time (and for specific reasons, which perhaps I will address another time).

There are so many things I have wanted to share with you, dear friends, about life, about being an ex-“normal person” who rediscovered herself as a modern-day yogini, about being a spiritual being walking the path and sometimes getting lost or hitting a wall and having to take an unplanned detour, about what it’s like being a mom again after 21 years and running a business simultaneously at that, about what it’s really like to live in paradise - off season! - about what it takes to run and lead a retreat center… and about the essence of being a woman, or simply just being...

But, for now, I shall revert back to this post's theme, so beautifully inspired by the month of March.

Busy Bee, Keeping UP! (Early signs of Spring on Hvar)

And here you have it, the theme for this month is - Keep UP!
