There are many memes about 2020 being a do-over. I laugh too, but I always add an extra punch line: There are no do-overs. There is only what we are given and what we do with it.
Many people have buried themselves in a fog these past six months. It’s the mind’s natural response when faced with too much: COVID-19, racial reckoning, the cruel joke of online schooling, presidential disasters, wildfires…
The mind may be able to ignore things for some time, but the body experiences everything with alarming clarity. It comes out as weight gain, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, migraines, aches and pains, panic attacks, insomnia, flatlining libido. There’s not enough wine in the world to make all this disappear.
I want to offer this nugget: It is possible to emerge from all this stronger. Not just physically, but emotionally and mentally. I’m not talking brute strength but the kind that comes from listening to your body’s inner wisdom. Snuggling up with your body’s responses, stories, and demands and finding out how to meet or mitigate them.
This is the kind of process that drowns out negative self-talk and makes your dream for a do-over into a legend.
Curious how to do that? Meet my newest child: BodyStory, a journaling journey guided by Ayurveda. This is a six-week online program designed to give you the space to process your body’s experience and share Ayurvedic tools to heal what ails you.
I’ll invite you to check out the site that has full details, but I bet you will probably say you can’t join this course. You are managing online schooling, a job, and trying to not explode every hour. You will probably refuse, but I invite you to keep reading. Because, answer me honestly:
How much longer can you possibly ignore what your body is saying before it gets much louder?
When will you finally make (small, doable) changes that will bring immediate results?
Is it really a choice to ignore this wake-up call any longer?
Each week we journey through one part of the body, learn practical Ayurvedic tools for inviting life into that area, and write together to break through the fog and welcome self-approval unlike any you’ve ever experienced.
Because I know it’s easier to come out of the fog when you’re holding someone’s hand, I’m offering a 2-for-1 early bird deal. Join with a friend by September 28 and you each get $70 off.
This is not a year for a do-over. It is a time to remake the story of your experience this year into a legend. We start October 6. Learn more here.
