Retreat time is approaching although I will be extending the start date by a few days. I will now begin on April 26th and go until May 9th. The reason being that Easter Sunday is on the 24th and my son Carlos will turn 30 on April 25th… Not making an Easter feast or the traditional birthday lunch would not go over well with anyone, least of all – me!
While on retreat, I am going to continue working on my book; do Yoga, walk and swim; I have other books to read and DVDs to watch.
And I am going to do a Cleanse – no bad-for-me food, no alcohol, plenty of fruits and vegetables, gallons of water. Have any of you tried this? Were the benefits worth it? Any recommendations?
Since deciding that I will be out of commission for two weeks, I’ve had many emails and calls – all supportive. I wonder why I never thought of this before? As the idea matures, I see it as a very positive life affirmation.
So what am I doing to get ready? I’ve prepared a few entrees and frozen them. I have my email inbox all cleared out and I have done some socializing that was long overdue. In a way, getting ready for the retreat is like preparing for a trip… lots to get done before “going away.”
I also have a few posts prepared that I’ll program for publishing at regular intervals.
A week today… it’s going to be great!
