This week I had a really bad dream and yesterday I learned something from this bad dream when I took the train home.
It has been one of those weeks where I feel like I have nothing to give because I am just trying to get from one day to the next. Today I want to encourage you and help you make it through those weeks, days or even months and I have a few tips of what I do when that happens
Friends, it is here! Your fall bucket list with all the big and little things you could do this fall. Every year around this time my Instagram starts filling up with all the cute pictures of people apparently doing #allthethings like apple picking, pumpkin buying, fire making… etc. etc. you get the point. The list I am giving you today is more of an inspiration to break out of the day to day to do lists we have in the fall and enjoy the beauty of the season.
I remember a few years back when summer was ending and I was still totally enjoying every second of it but before I knew it, fall was here and I was in the thick of it not knowing left from right and always thinking about the next thing. I was not enjoying myself and was not enjoying the beauty that fall has to offer. After that year, I said no more and chose to make a change and I am sharing my tips to make it through the busy season with you today.
Maybe you are thinking right now, «why is she writing about the importance of rest when fall and the busiest season of the year is ahead”?
Because I believe that before we can handle the busy seasons in life we need to learn to stop and rest and do all the things out of a position of rest rather than a position of stress. When we are well rested, we can achieve more and contribute more.
It was about two years ago and I was sitting on my green chair in my living room thinking about life. This question came up on the inside of me asking, “Are you willing to give it all up, the life you have created, your independence?” And boy oh boy was that a hard one to answer because I love being single. I love my independence, not having to ask anyone about anything and I love having time by myself.
Today is about encouraging you to make the hard decision and stick with it.
The past six months I have looked back on decisions I have made which brought me to where I am today. I already mentioned this on my birthday and I knew I wanted to share one of those stories with you today. It’s getting up close and personal.
Well, I made you a virtual cake we can have with our virtual coffee 😊 but really I just want to celebrate the journey so far.
This blog is turning 1 year today and it has been the most incredible year. It has pushed me to be creative. It has pushed me to be more vulnerable, to share my life and to let go of the lies that tell me I am not good enough.
