Day 5, 6, and 7 of Eco Village Intensive: my brain is fried sorry, I can’t do it yet

Walking on the beach at sunset has not refreshed me

Even a sunset beach walk can’t take away my overload this week #over50 #wellbeing #selfcarefail #Australia

6.30 am now in Australia. This morning is Day Seven: a walk on the actual land, meeting under the giant fig tree. Last night was the Farewell Talent Night- not because we’re losing our talents, but because the Intensive is finishing. Seven days, 9-5, plus nightly optional activities… plus our real lives/work/families/blogs etc on top of that.

MY BRAIN IS FRIED. And yes, I’m shouting a little bit there.

So I’m pausing for a couple of days to recalibrate, then will write about the remaining days.

Because, of course, The Blog Must Go On.

But not at the expense of my sanity, which I’m sure you support.

In gratitude for the Pause Button when I need it, and much love, G xOΒ 


  1. Eh, real life comes first, so I’d say just write when it’s time to write. We’re big enough to go play quietly until it’s time to read this blog again–I hope! ahaha!

  2. No matter what an ‘intensive’ is about we always need downtime afterwards … it’s not possible to sustain that hind of intensity without a cost.

    … have fun … see you on the other side. πŸ˜€

  3. Oh, Gabrielle that’s so smart! I realize that it’s super important to take time to integrate, to relax, and to take care of yourself. Still working on it. πŸ™‚ Have a safe trip home. Be well!!! Love, Debbie
    ps – I’m looking forward to you sharing your wisdom ❀
