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.
At the end of the day, just do your best and be true to yourself. It’s really all we can do, isn’t it?
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.
You make the best plans and set forth, only to find after many of life’s diversions and detours that you feel lost and off course. It happens to everyone, even with the most carefully laid out plans and the hardest work. Consider that maybe you aren’t actually lost, and heading somewhere else, somewhere even better, somewhere you were truly meant to be. Thank you to my friend Chloe Ashley for spotting this lovely goat near Cromer, UK.
Confidence can be hard to summon sometimes. I recommend using some positive affirmations, putting your best possible face forward and just fake it until you make it. You might surprise yourself!
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.
Sometimes life can be really difficult and it can feel very unfair. By no means am I an expert in how to handle every challenge, complication or adversity that we encounter throughout our lives. However, even in the darkest of hours, perhaps when it is time to say goodbye to an ideal or a dream or a reality that must end or will never be, there are always glimmers of hope, like streetlights shining on puddles in potholes. For example, tiny, baby goats.
