simply stretch


What a simple but powerful word.

When I was thinking of my word of the year back in November this word immediately popped up.

It really hit me. I resisted first a few minutes. Like I always do when a word of the year comes to me, but then I went with it.

I love the meaning behind it:

be made or be capable of being made longer or wider without tearing or breaking.

What a definition. Being made more without breaking. Not pushing yourself so much as to cause damage.

Sometimes I wonder, since I talk about simple living and slow living, if people assume that's always about resting and not growing and being stagnant.

We even talk about stretching before & after a workout as if it is not a stand alone event.

Yet the subtle act of stretching - your body or your mind or your work- perfectly aligns with slow, simple living.

It's a way of growth that helps you step out of your comfort zone while still allowing your true self to shine.

Are you craving a more simple life?
