Why? Well I realized that I had returned to some of my bad habits - barking orders at my kids, getting overwhelmed by to do lists and trying to control things around me.
By taking the time to reflect about what I was feeling and experiencing in the moment, this bubbled up with such clarity. I want to lead from the heart, connect meaningfully with those around me and break free from the "have tos" and "shoulds".
While I may have known subconsciously that this was going on, and my tension filled body certainly knew, I hadn't given myself enough space to process the feelings and shift my actions.
So, here she is, my inner Surfer Girl, Lee. She's carefree, she loves the freedom of the open waters and she lives her life fully connected to her heart.
She won't always be leading my life, but I'll certainly call on her when I need to "chill out", lay back and enjoy the little things.
