A week from today, several of us will wake up in a beautiful villa in the South of France, ready to enjoy our first full day of Retreat together. We have no class planned for that day, just easing into the time change, getting to know our little village - and our swimming pool - and eating delicious food prepared just for us.
What's not to love?
Nothing, really. It's all a big batch of upcoming yumminess and I am beyond thrilled to share my home country with a great group of people.
Yet, at three in the morning, stuff was moving around in my brain, moving around enough to wake me up.
Leaving takes some work. Lists, delegating, preparing, preparing for what we can't anticipate, too.
There is the Center to take care of, my home, the Airbnb, the kitty (and having just lost her sister, she needs extra love)... a whole other bunch of goodness to put in good hands, making sure these good hands have everything they need to do their job.
Hence the waking up at three in the morning, mainly with one particular situation doing some funny cartwheels in the dark.
Knowing it wasn't going to stop on its own, I turned on the light and grabbed a pen and paper.
"Finding the Thread" saved my night. This super simple process is really powerful, I am telling you.
Within less than 5 minutes, I had my answer. Just like that.
And so, even though I already shared this with you recently, I am sharing it again this morning. Because I feel it is that good, and because you may have missed it, and because I want to.
Next time, your mind starts to make swirlies, give it a shot?
Wishing you an awesome day!
