Welcome back to Reboot!
We’re at the point in our camp where we can begin to lose focus or momentum. Or, maybe we feel like we’re not doing things perfectly, so why even bother. Or you may be on track but feel like it’s hard to keep track of everything.
First, wherever you are is awesome in my book! Our well-being is always evolving and means something different to us each day. Reboot Boot Camp is not just about me giving you challenges but also about you becoming aware of what you need to feel good each day. Some days this may mean finding some stillness in your day and some days this may mean walking 5 miles. You are the expert on you!
As we continue to work on our Week 3 goals, today, our camp is having some down time today and talking about Wabi Sabi. Your challenge today is to bring this forward into your day and into our boot camp.
Embracing Wabi Sabi.
Loosely translated, wabi sabi is a way of living that celebrates the profound beauty of imperfections, the impermanence of life and the even the incompleteness of things and life. Often at a Japanese tea ceremony, there will be a crack in a cup or other imperfection to illustrate this way of living. There is always beauty in the cracks, the imperfections, and and in things getting older, including ourselves.
How does this apply to our day to day lives? Take a look at thoughts or judgments that you may have about yourself, your life, your home or maybe other people as well. What does it feel like if you apply this concept of wabi sabi to your thoughts? What does it feel like if you view yourself and your life with the concept of wabi sabi? I’m guessing that everything feels a LOT better! Try to embrace this same way of living and recognize that there is beauty in imperfection and celebrate the here and now. Give yourself permission to celebrate your wonderful, imperfect self!
