The Saturday Night Fever edition.
If my math is right, I am at the half way point. I think there is 52 weeks in a year, and if you carry the 2, divide by 16, subtract 13. You.. Um, I have no idea what that would give you. Let’s just say 26. Yeah, 26th week is now under the belt.
It’s wild to think that this weekend will be the last weekend of August. With next weekend being Labor Day weekend. This year has just blown by. I guess when you are busy enjoying yourself and having fun, you don’t even notice the days zipping by. At least now when I look back I can finally say I have accomplished and did something. One of the biggest things about my life was that I had not much to show for it. That can be a depressing thing. Now I am making traction, and making things happen. I have achieved much this year, and am building for an even more exciting 2017. I can not wait to see things come into fruition in my life.
This week has been another action packed week and I would not have it any other way. It stated with Tuesday when I went for a Reiki session. For those that are not aware, Reiki is a form of energy healing, that uses hands on and off to balance the energy system in the body to help the bodies natural healing capabilities to work even better. That was an interesting experience. I have never had a session before. So this was a first. I am open to many things in the pursuit of healing my mind, body, and spirit. I know this will be a life long pursuit, and I am OK with this. I am learning many things, about myself, and about others. And it is bringing new and lovely people into my life. Something I never really had before. That has been such a blessing, and such a wonderful bonus. It has me doing things I never would have thought of, and is helping me gain so much from life. Such as hope and faith. It was a lovely session, I will admit I was a little nervous and anxious before hand, and well, old habits can be very hard to get rid of. So I know this may be a battle that may always exist. I really don’t know what the future will hold for me and my healing. I will take it one day at a time. I am glad that I did not allow my anxiety to cripple me, or cause me to put my head between my legs and high tail it out of there. I am glad that I stuck with it, and got the Reiki session. I felt really good afterwards and the next few days. I was a little sensitive, as energy healing can bring things up to be healed, and as someone that is very sensitive to the energies and the people around him, it can be a little jarring when it is riled up. So after a few days, and a ton of water, I feel much better. I look forward to my next session and continuing my healing journey. That is what this blog and my journey has been about. My healing journey. Trying new things. Going beyond my comfort zone. And embracing the chaos so to speak, instead of allowing it to defeat me.
Thursday was a meetup with some friends, at a place thirty minutes from where I live. We got together and talked, and had great conversation, and many laughs. Always good for the soul. That was another fun night with a great group of people, and I met new people. Another plus.
The weather was much cooler when the week started it dropped down to a cool 80 degree, which allowed me to go running twice this week, for the first time since the fourth of July. Then this weekend it decided to start another heat wave. Putting a sun block on much of what I was going to do today. I did not allow that to limit me too much as I decided to go out to Red Bank Battlefield.. Again. I think this is the 4th time I’ve been there this year. It’s like my new cool hangout. There was a lot of people there. A LOT. Many, if not most, were walking around playing Pokemon Go. Makes you wonder if that was the only reason they went outside today. I suppose if it gets people outside, that is a good thing. Though I think it is increasing people staring at their phones, and not really engaging and interacting with people. I got bored with the game and already deleted it. Since it was bookoo hot out, I tried to stay in the shade and near the water as much as I could. It did help. After being there I took a nice air conditioned car ride, and just enjoyed myself. Being in the moment. No cares or worries in the world. Then I went to cool off some, and then went out to the movies to see Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party… Which sounds kind of perverted saying it out loud. It was not a bad flick. Certainly not something you would want to see with your kids, even the teenagers. That may be a little awkward. Kind of like those parents that took their kids to see Deadpool.
All in all it was another good week. Tomorrow I will be out and about again, as I do some card readings for people. That will be a good chunk of the afternoon. I just recently started doing that, I would never have been able to do such a thing in the past. Life takes you in so many new and exciting places if you allow it.
