A critical element of success on the Heroine’s Quest is unplugging; getting away, taking quiet time to unwind and clear one’s head. (Vision Quest Retreats is in fact partly based upon this notion.) With so much work and other demands it is easy to get swept away in striving but this must be undone. Too much effort and striving leaves me out of balance, stressed and in danger of fatigue and burnout. Finding moments of rest and quiet help me rejuvenate and open me to greater creativity and joy in my work.
This weekend I was blessed to get away to Martha’s Vineyard (in the off season) to spend time with my cousin who I don’t often see and to spend quiet time exploring the island and just getting to “BE” with no particular agenda.
I drove all over the island just taking in the beauty and the quiet. I stood on the beach and let the cold blustering wind sweep from my mind the cobwebs and dross accumulated there.
