A ritual is defined as a prescribed rite. Sometimes we lose sight of the important part: the reason for prescription, the need to be filled. I’ve long known self love and continual self exploration is essential to my well being. Yet have been guilty of thinking the important part is the rite, the steps, the 2pm sharp, the hot water before coffee.
Those things are nice but not of the essence. The ritual (for me, you can sub for yours) is reading, writing, yoga, breathing while whispering “I love you”, looking into strangers eyes. At 2pm or 1am, before or after, do it when you can and not when it isn’t possible.
All the love, Luz
