I’m sitting on a ebook by Dr. Peter Levine – In An Unspoken Voice, so my butt does not get sore sitting on the rocks. My canine is sniffing within the timber, on the lookout for one thing both to chase or eat, or um… each.
This is my Monday! My Mondays did not all the time appear to be this, however they’re increasingly more reflecting the nurture and luscious dwelling I have craved for years.

I simply pulled Peter’s ebook from underneath my bum and noticed one other quote that’s helpful right here:

Addictions to drama, meals, religious override, struggling, extra video video games, over-spending, over-working, persistent negativity, intellectualization, psychological rumination, relationship and train addictions, fixating on our limitations, and so on. retains us over stimulated and thus separate from the sacredness of the physique and better thoughts.
