So, I’ve been a little nervous to say this, but I’m taking some time, my cutie friends.
Not because anything is wrong. In fact, it’s the opposite.
It’s to celebrate.
Weird, right? I know. It’s not something we really encourage as a society.
But, I’m gonna do it.
I’m going to be making some big juicy open space so I can actually relax, rejuvenate, celebrate, just be, and marvel at this wild-still-blows-my-mind-blessing that:
1) I’m so excited to get married,
2) to the love of my life.
And, the biggest gift that I would treasure when I’m 80, would to be to feel so completely and fully present with the people closest in my life, in this special little time.
Wrapped up in love.
I mean, sure, did I think about working myself crazy right up until the day of the wedding? Or until the week before?
Truthfully, everything in my bones would have screamed yeah-yeah-yeah-YES to that.
I love my job. Looove it. Too much sometimes.
I can’t stop it, most times. It oozes out of me. It’s all smooshed up in there.
Which makes it fun and also ridiculous sometimes. Ask Kyle how hard he laughed at the instagram husband video. It’s real, people.
My work in this world, is one of my biggest joys in life, and I get so much freaking energy from it and helping people make their lives better. Every client. Every program. Every event, every blog post. I’m smiling as I type this, thinking about it.
But, I hustle. Big time. I push and create and work some crazy hours. And I have to balance it with ease and flow and grace.
It’s essential, and I have found over these last 4 years, that I need both.
But that sometimes, those two things can’t always co-exist together.
Or they can, but you risk the ability to be actually present. And calm. And connected.
And so grateful in every little piece of your heart, because you mind is on those million emails that need to be answered, and the little fires that have to be put out each day.
So, space to pause.
I’m taking some.
Which is scary, if I’m being honest. And often full of little pitter-patters of guilt. Of letting other people down. Of feeling like it’s too extravagant to take time.
None of which would be walking my walk of a living a truly healthy (and happy) lifestyle. Because it’s a balance. A fine one. But a true one.
So this week marks my little sweet season of time off. To celebrate, to soak in this season, and to be fully present with the huge blessings that I feel so grateful for in my life.
All group programs, events, 1:1 coaching will resume late July, with waitlists that have started this week, in a first come, first serve kind of way. Just send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you covered.
The blog, weekly (ish) email, recipes, seasonal meal plans and instagram will all still be around, as usual, and for those of you that want to follow along with my travel and adventures. Because you know I can’t help it.
And so, I must ask you too: is there an area in your life too, that might be able to benefit from some breathing room? Some nourishing and regenerating space?
Or, is there something in your life that you should be celebrating or reveling in, but you’ve been too busy to make the time?
Because learning to celebrating the good things in life, is like having a practice of deep gratitude. The more you look for things to be grateful for, the more you’ll find.
And the more things you look for to celebrate, the more there will be. It’s magic, actually. However big or small those things are, or whatever season of life you are in.
Living an inspired (and happier, healthier) life could be as simple as that. And it’s yours for the taking.
