Foggy with a Chance of Sunshine

The Bay enshrouded with fog

The fog we had on the bay recently reminded me of how my brain has been feeling.

Since I got rid of gluten from my diet, the physical brain fog that used to ruin my days is gone, but I still have emotional brain fogs when I feel utterly confused about what I am doing, where I am going, and on and on.

Since I got rid of gluten, though, I know that this state of mind is one I have the energy to delve into and that it will, with enough attention on my part, go away. (The physical brain fog from gluten could go on for weeks and months with barely a break. Or more accurately, it was a fairly permanent state with an occasional period of clarity.)

Tomorrow afternoon, I leave for a mini-retreat, and I will be taking a small list of questions that Marcy has created for me about which I am meant to journal.

Spring seems the right time for this -- right before all the sun and heat and energy of summer.

Have an amazing retreat, C! Take full, full advantage of this opportunity and I'm sure you are going to come back with some refreshed energy and ideas.

Is one of the questions on Marcy's list "How are we going to responsibly care for THREE bunnies for eight days???" LOL

Funny, some mornings right now that's how Melbourne looks and we're supposedly in the opposite season to you!

Emotional fog, eh? Yeah me too. It's why my blog has been so quiet of late.

Enjoy your mini-retreat. I'm sure it'll be awesome :)
