Ever feel like you’re stretched too thin? I do, too.
In the past week, I’ve been in “launch mode,” wrapping up loose ends for 2017, planning for 2018, re-branding, planning and promoting upcoming workshops and events, listening to a bunch of marketing podcasts to learn more about some things I just haven’t learned yet, recording my own podcast episodes, practicing the art of surrender when it comes to upcoming changes in life and business, holiday shopping, connecting with Josh, and snuggling my pup.
WHAAAAAT?! If one of my clients told me this story, I’d be like “Woman! Slow down! Take time just for YOU!” __
I’m sensing that a LOT of us are in this space right now, wanting to feel clear and freaking POWERFUL as we welcome 2018, and also that we have taken the necessary time and space for cozy comfort, connection, and reflection on a year well-lived, well-led, and well-loved.
How I’ve been navigating this space of end of year fullness has allowed me to NOT get sucked under, stressed out, or overwhelmed though, and there are a few reasons for that.
1️⃣ SISTERHOOD || I’ve been leaning into the support of women in my life who “get it” for lunches, dinners, yoga classes, barre classes, intention-setting, business brainstorming, & good ol’ girl talk and connection.
2️⃣ TRUST || If I thought entrepreneurship was uncertain before, then I didn’t know just how uncertain and up in the air life could be when you introduce the US government and a military relationship! Things change at the drop of a hat, it’s challenging to plan ahead for things, and you never know what you’re going to get. In those moments, I’ve learned to let go and REALLY trust with every fiber of my being that it’s all divinely orchestrated, exactly as it should be, and I will always have exactly what I need and BE where I need to be moment to moment in order to fulfill my life’s mission.
3️⃣ SPACIOUSNESS || I’ve given myself so much permission lately to do NOTHING, to sit on the couch in the evenings and snuggle while watching my guilty pleasure reality TV shows, and to choose EASE whenever possible. Dog park fetch vs. a 1.5 hour walk & meals from @greenchef delivered to my door are 👌🏽
