Who knew before kids that time by yourself could feel so precious. It’s been 5.5 years since I’ve boarded a plane by myself.
Heading to a 2 day parenting and 3 day silent meditation retreat with @drshefalitsabary at @1440multiversity. 1440 is a brand new facility nestled in the redwoods outside San Jose, built with a focus around nourishment, mindfulness and healing.
My soul is lit up with joy.
I set an intention this year to fill my bucket first so I could be more present, grounded, loving, compassionate and oozing vitality.
It’s not always easy, in fact it’s easier to default to my people pleasing tendencies of putting my family first, (using their needs as a distraction) however since setting this intention and taking action, my awareness to when I’m in or out of alignment has been significantly heightened. I’m so grateful because it allows me to self correct much quicker.
And if I find myself wavering I lean on my biggest cheerleaders. Sukhi, my mom, my BFF’s to remind me.
I actually considered canceling this retreat when I discovered Sukhi was going to be away the exact dates, he got an opportunity to do something super awesome I felt he couldn’t miss so I considered changing my dates and doing something else. I didn’t want him to miss his trip and I didn’t want the girls to be without both of us for 5 days.
When I told Sukhi he was like if you feel you need to cancel I won’t go. Then I talked to my BFF @larakozan and she was like oh no you don’t, the girls will be fine, you are going. 🙏🏻🙏🏻 Sometimes I need those little extra nudges to be reminded what’s good for me is good for my family.
Do you have people you can lean on to support you in living to your highest potential?
What can you do to fill your bucket?
