Over the past few weeks we’ve had quite a few adventures with water. It all began with the air conditioning going out. Which doesn’t sound like it’s related to water, but the big of chunk of ice that formed in one of the pipes begged to differ. Next, I spilled a beverage on my Mac. Finally, our water filtration system decided to get in on the action and start overflowing.
At first I thought about the water deity I had been petitioning. Then, I realized that I hadn’t been the best with my emotions lately. Things had been backing up and hardening into resentment. I had feelings that needed to flow; to be expressed.
I would love to say that I am all expressed out and that things have stopped flooding. That wouldn’t be fully honest though. :). However, I have been inspired to be more vulnerable in my communication. I am learning to ask for what I need rather than sit in resentment. I’m also learning to talk about how I’m really feeling instead of sugar coating everything. The result has been a stronger, closer connection with my husband and more clarity in my friendships.
Hopefully I can keep up with the flow of honoring my emotions in the present moment.
Until next time, take precious care.
