Where has the time gone? As I lay in a hammock on the beach listening to the waves crash I feel a sense of relaxation for the first time in weeks. I thought I was leaving for this trip to escape the 9-5 grind and be schedule free. However, that has yet to happen. Today is the first day which I can say I woke up refreshed after a full night’s sleep, with no alarm at 8 am and spent my morning how I wanted to spend it. Meditating, walking along the beach and really just taking in the last few weeks of chaos and reflecting on what I’ve learned.
In order for something to grow, you must nourish it. You feed your children, you feed your pets, and you feed yourself. If you want to learn a skill you must show up everyday and work on that skill. Nourish it until it grows.
If there is one thing that I have learned while being a health coach, it is that we must nourish OURSELVES as we nourish our business and every other aspect of our lives. Sometimes you can get so wrapped up in all the creativity, learning and excitement of running a business that you forget to take care of yourself.
Somedays I really wonder how women go through their entire lives with the pressures of society constantly on them.
Today I was chatting with an older women who was absolutely radiant. She looked happy as could be and was truly glowing. Yet the first words out of her mouth, to my surprise were “what ever you do don’t get old” – and let me just say I CAN NOT count the amount of times I hear this statement in a week. Mind you, I do live in a ‘retirement community’ (most likely because I am an old soul and I fit in here) but it still shocks me the amount of people who make growing old and even retirement sound DAUNTING.
What a week!
My vibration was ridiculously high this week which was no coincidence considering SUMMER SOLSTICE was on Wednesday!
For those of you who don’t know the summer solstice is the longest day of the year (meaning the sun is up in the sky longer than any other day of the year). It is the first official day of summer and it is a time to celebrate the light of consciousness. It is a time to reflect upon the potential for consciousness to awaken both in ourselves and within everyone else!
It’s half way through May.. where has the time gone?! I don’t know about you, but these past 5 months have been hectic for me. Two jobs, finishing up my last semester of school and starting my own business has kept me busy to say the least! I feel as though I was on an emotional roller coaster and I have finally gotten off the ride.
Thanksgiving is a holiday I truly look forward to each year! With the leaves changing, it is an absolutely beautiful 3 hour scenic drive ‘home’ to see my family.
As I sit here in the passenger seat mesmerized by all the magical colours around me, I find myself feeling grateful for all that I have experienced this year!
