{Re FUSE}

There is in the heart of acceptance, the beat of refusal. To refuse is to decline anything that continually goes against your well being. To say yes to wellness might mean saying no to the extra glass of wine or the third cup of coffee or the chocolate bar that is languishing in your fridge. […]

There is in the heart of acceptance, the beat of refusal.

To refuse is to decline anything that continually goes against your well being.

To say yes to wellness might mean saying no to the extra glass of wine or the third cup of coffee or the chocolate bar that is languishing in your fridge.

To say yes to wellness might mean saying no to the same old argument that you keep having with yourself, or with your partner or your children or your parents or your friends.

To say yes to wellness might mean saying no to the many hours you spend on social media poring over an endless feed of other people’s lives feeling dissatisfied about your own.

To say yes to wellness might mean saying no to the business that you started that is draining you of your good intentions and your bank balance.

To say yes to wellness might mean saying no to the many long hours you spend at work trying to climb higher forfeiting the chance to catch up with your family instead.

To say yes to wellness might mean facing the fear of insignificance knowing that your presence is more than enough to overcome your absence.

To say yes to wellness might mean facing the different ways we have willingly and unknowingly sabotaged ourselves.

When we find the courage to refuse, we start the journey to {re fuse} our lives in the many ways where we return to the world stronger and more embodied. We glue back together all our broken pieces, acknowledging where we have been, how we have been and come to a deeper understanding of where we wish to go and how we wish to be seen. We infuse, invigorate, invoke with grounded intentionality.

In returning to ourselves we get another chance to move into the bigger arc and the fuller circle of our life.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
