Find a partner who nourishes your soul and you will never go wrong.
It is ok to take some personal space sometimes to recharge. This weekend, make sure you carve out some time just for you to spend with yourself.
One of the best parts about starting Goat of the Day is that my friends living in different parts of the world sometimes send me pictures of goats they encounter during their adventures. My friend Lena sent me a photograph of this goat in France on an island called Noirmoutier near a chévrerie where goat cheese is made. Although only bound to the pasture by a single rope, this goat was content where she was. Take a moment to find contentment exactly where you are – and remember a boundary is only as firm as you want it to be.
Whew, sometimes the weeks feel like they go by so fast! Take some time this weekend to pause and take an inventory of all the amazing things in your life. It is hard but sometimes remembering a special detail here and there can highlight the best bits of life that can easily slip under the radar and be taken for granted.
If you find yourself overwhelmed, take a moment to check in, relax, and just breathe. Find a comfortable seat, close your eyes and listen to your breathe and let the moment pass. Summer can be lovely, but it can also be super busy, so make sure to look after yourself amidst the holiday adventures.
I have said it before when I am running late, and I will likely say it again in the future. Sometimes, if you save something until the very last minute, it only takes a minute to do.
When things don’t quite seem to be working out the way you planned, just focus on the present moment. There is nothing you can do to change the past, and the future has yet to be written, so just allow yourself to enjoy all the beautiful things of the now.
Sometimes you just have to find your opening and sometimes you have to nudge it open yourself. There is always a way forward, even if sometimes it feels like it’s going to be a tight squeeze.
It is never too late to start something new or make a big change. Rest today and prepare for new opportunities and developments for the week ahead.
Take some time to reflect back on all that you have accomplished. Whatever your journey, or your intended destination, there is no doubt that you have achieved a lot along the way. Be proud of yourself – you deserve it.
