This card makes me happy.
Literally, it’s my happy place.
It shows a human figure in a creek with arms wide and face up to the sky. There is a river otter that is much bigger than the figure also collaged in.

A river with otters, I could live there.
Play and rest are hard for me.
I have so many messages about productivity and so many gremlins that try to persuade me I can only truly rest when everything is done.
What I am reminded of with these images is that play and rest truly revitalize me, so that I can continue showing up in the world.
Nature reminds me that there are seasons, as well as daily responses of rest.
Water is so refreshing and cleansing and peaceful.
Otters always look like they are having fun.
The spirit of the otter reminds me to play well and allow myself the time to discover and explore.
The child reminds me to stay in that state of mind and allow my inner child time to play and rest.
What are the things that remind you to play and rest and not ignore our biological need for those responses?
This coming Tuesday in the WholeheARTed course we will let go of productivity as a status symbol and cultivate play and rest through movement, meditation, and of course, creativity. I hope you will join us. www.daringdiscoveries.com/wholehearted
