Here we are again!
It’s the first day of summer and I’m sitting on the deck of my lake house, taking in my surroundings and savoring the beauty of the morning.
As I sip my coffee, I see butterflies and hummingbirds enjoying our newly planted flowers. I see squirrels playing around a tree. I hear the honking of geese flying across the lake, and I hear a symphony of birds singing their songs.
As I reflect on the seasons of my own life, one word emerges: PRIORITIZE.
You might remember I chose prioritize as my word of the year – and it has been an appropriate choice!
This spring, I prioritized creating my online course, Stress Less & Love More. It’s been a dream of mine to have this course on a teaching platform so that it can be available to help people year-round. (If you or anyone you know are interested, you can find the details here!)
As I immersed myself in creating it, I found myself unable to do much else. I exercised less. I meditated less. I journaled less. I hardly posted on social media, and I paused the writing of these notes to you. None of this wasn’t intentional, but I found I had little time or energy for anything other than the course and my family.
I was tempted to criticize myself for this. But then I realized this truth: We can’t do it all and we’re not meant to! Sometimes the big things in our lives need this type of attention, commitment, and sacrifice.
I'm wondering if you might consider:
Is there something in your life waiting for you to prioritize it?
How can you give it the time and space it needs?
What’s most important to you in the season of life you’re in?
In this next season – SUMMER – here’s what I’m prioritizing:
taking care of myself
savoring time with my family
getting back in the flow of expressing & sharing ideas
1:1 work with my clients
Let me know what you’re prioritizing in your season of life!
Love and light,
