Well, schools are pretty much out and it’s the Mom over-drive season! Whether you have a graduate and are looking at, “Yikes, now what?” or you have a full house or somewhere in between, this is the season to TAKE CARE of YOURSELF.
I need this reminder daily as I schlep, organize, drive here and there and back again to here and there. Don’t get me wrong I love this job and I know it is ever-fleeting but we cannot put ourselves on that back burner!!! How is that 3-minute meditation going? Are you doing it? Yeaaaaa!!!! If not no shame, no blame, no problem. Just jump back on it. It will make a difference. I promise you. Some days it is my salvation, my “Calgon”.
Do you remember that commercial, “Calgon take me away….” Hahaha. I don’t even know if it still exists but, man, we are still needing that break! At this time of year, I always feel like the energy is similar to the holiday scramble. Sooooo relieved to be released by the demands of the school schedule yet floundering a bit to find a rhythm. And one that works for all of us and so I don’t get sacrificed in the process.
I’ve found that especially as I have stepped deeper into entrepreneurship and new ventures, it has created a new “uncomfortable” around scheduling myself and everyone else. Life learning, life lessons, be kind to yourself! Meditate, chant (sing, if so inclined), walk, be in nature, girl time, laughter, animals and pets, podcasts, what else helps you? Tell me your recharge. What is it you do when you need to refuel your soul energy?
As we enter into the summer solstice energy with a half of a year in front of us, what do you want to do for yourself? What do you want the end of 2019 to be you can feel soooooo satisfied that you took yourself seriously enough to spend time on you and did _____________?
Let’s inspire each other to do something for ourselves. Let’s harness the summer solstice energy and create what we want for ourselves in the second half of 2019! Big, small doesn’t matter what but let’s do it and share it! Can’t wait to hear from you all.
Happy Tuesday and beyond!
