A Summery Pace

A little wind passes through the open window. I am wearing the flowery dress that I bought in Polen, during my first summer vacation with Jeroen. I just got off the phone with one of my clients; we had a nice conversation.

It feels very summery today. Summery in the way that it is time for me to unwind. For two weeks, I will only work for 50%. The other half of the week, I am spending with the kids. I’ll probably get us to some water today. Or we will be lying in the shade in a park on a little plaid, playing some games. All fine, all good. Unwinding, relaxing, enojoying, hanging out.

Yes, I will get my taxes in on time. Let’s not get too summery here. Doing a reality check once in a while can be useful.

A place of knowing, enoughness and tenderness
Summertime encourages me to create from this soft place inside of me, a place of knowing, enoughness and tenderness. Very different from the getting-things-done-energy, that I’m also very familiar with. Equally important. It can definitely come in handy. But as soon as the getting-things-done-energy starts to take over the store, I know I’ve gotten myself into trouble. Instead of allowing myself the joyful pleasure of creating, I am forcefully pushing through.

The summer invites me to go at a different pace. Everything is already here. I only have to lean into it. And enjoy myself.
