Have you gotten back in the swing of things, or are you still in a post-holiday coma? I'm somewhere in the middle, with work actually having started this week.
Finding a rhythm and routine feels so daunting after a hiatus of some non-structure. There's this fine balance in life of finding joy in structure and non-structure. How do we lean into both and truly listen to what our beings are telling us? There is a natural craving to slow down and speed back up, but how often are we actually listening? Do we know what to hone in on?
I was a little late in my intention-setting for the new year. I think I gave up on resolutions a while ago, but intention-setting is the new resolutions. Right? We call it bhāvanā in Sanskrit, and there's something about sending your intentions out into the universe that really clicks with me. I've always been a believer of the universe being on my (your) side. With a little faith and surrender to whatever it is that you believe in, I whole-heartedly believe your dreams will come true. Of course, effort is required on my side, but that's a given.
Anyways. I spent my evening today and yesterday just thinking through what it is that I am seeking this year. If you follow me on instagram, you saw that there are 5 main categories that I'm looking to live into and show up as a better Nishita in: health, work, personal, relationships, and spiritual.
I hope that y'all don't mind my reflections every now and then. But life often awes me and brings me to my knees, and for that I am grateful. If anything, I have a sincere hope that my thoughts only spark something within you to dive deeper into our path of true happiness. ANYWHO! Shall we?
