Summer road trips prior to 2022 were an escape. An escape from the story I told about the demands of the role I played in a school environment. When I took my own advice, and changed the story I told about the demands, the intensity lessened – it became manageable.

Road trips are now an experience.

cue.

An example of how to use MBK in day could start with the cues: shoulders over hips. look up. Now we have Alignment – mind can download into body for present moment awareness.

Because I didn’t blog last weekend, I neglected to share the animal spirit theme for the month: crocodile. For me, the main takeaway, or ‘power’ in this card can be whittled to one word: wait. If you are interested in more context regarding the ‘animal spirit card’ you can read the post deck. I suppose…
