I’ve been down here a few days now, but I’m still working on getting the hang of this. I have to keep reminding myself: I have no schedule (aside from working a few days a week). The days are left to me to decide what to do. This feels very strange and is something that will take me a few weeks to settle into. I am physically not yet relaxed, my body thinks there is still some appointment we have to make.
Before I started this trip, most of my days were spent rushing from one thing to another: work, then the dog park, then salsa class or an evening out with friends or something else. My body is still in that mode of rush rush rush, so slowing down and having all this free time is very foreign yet. I feel a lot of resistance to it right now. I know at the conclusion of this trip, one of my goals will be to better balance the rushing and relaxing.
