It’s been awhile
This is a phrase that has kept repeating itself to me recently so I thought about what that means for me: It’s been a while since I’ve seen and hugged people. It’s been a while since I’ve visited certain places. It’s been a while since doing the school run. It’s been a while since seeing clients face to face.
I went on to think about this on an internal level; it’s been a while since I have written anything, it’s been a while since I had a decent block of peace & quiet, it’s been a while since I asked myself how I’m doing. Not until a friend asked me did I stop to really think about how I feel, what life looks like right now and what impact that has and I thought to myself ‘it’s been a while’. It’s been a while since checking in with me, since I attended to myself and observed all that I have been experiencing.
So I took a mental snap shot of this moment in time, a check point internally and externally. I’m reminded of times of getting together with friends and family and that parting sentence “Don’t leave it so long next time!” and I said to myself, “Its been awhile, let’s not leave it so long next time.”
