In her post "Slowing down, again, more," Nimue Brown writes "T Thorn Coyle explores the importance of desire, of following the calling of your soul." That's what I loved about going on the walk today. I was following the calling of my soul. I saw things that called to me, so I drew closer to them.
She goes on to say, "I’m so used to pushing my body to exhaustion and beyond." Yes, that's what I have to do every single day. I can't live if I don't. For my survival I depend on income from a job that demands more energy than I have, so I have to keep pushing myself past exhaustion.
And then I go home, and I have to prepare food and wash dishes and get groceries and do laundry and pay bills. My body says no, but I have to do it.
So that's what my life is every day. Pushing my body.
When I get to follow the call of my soul, those are rare and precious moments.
