In less than two weeks I will be setting off in a plane to Costa Rica.
In less than two weeks, for the first time in at least 27 years I will be responsible for no one other than myself.
I will not have siblings, roommates, friends, husband, children or family depending on me.
I will not be in a position to help, care for, tend to or pick up after anyone but me.
For the first time in as long as I can remember I will be able to focus solely on myself, my growth, my spirit.
There will be no distractions, no life tasks, no one to answer to but me.
There will be nothing stopping me from sitting in the stillness of my breath and truly hearing spirit.
There won’t be a need to check five calendars before making a decision. Or the need to double check everything to make sure we haven’t forgotten someone’s hockey/ski/tae-kwon do before going to the grocery store.
For the first time in as long as I can remember, my focus will only be on me. And that is scary, and so exciting too.
I will have 28 days to examine my personal and spiritual growth, experience new growth, and not have excuses.
I will be immersed in self care, yoga and meditation, allowing healing, self love and acceptance without outside judgement.
This opportunity is not one that I take lightly. I am ready to take full responsibility for the gift spirit has given, and allow myself to be open and accept what it will bring.
I am grateful, I am blessed, I am responsible.
