A trip back to the homeland this Summer reminded me how to come back home to myself. It's pretty easy to get caught up in business when it's so close to home, and when it's literally taking over my home. We can't even think about hosting the holidays this year because our dining room is packed to the ceiling with lip balms. But since we've been back, I've been strictly taking nights & weekends off and sticking to a schedule this year. I feel lighter about it all, and things are still moving at a nice speed. I have to remind myself that building this big brand is a marathon and not a sprint. If it's effecting your happiness, ability to enjoy the most important things in life (family & friends) then life really does just start to pass you by with less meaning. I'm so thankful to Greece and spending two amazing weeks awau for this beautiful reminder. Oh, and meditation on the daily, it's a freaking game changer.
Wishing you all a very peaceful pace & happy year ahead! I'm feeling more at peace in the present moment than I have in a long time. It's a beautiful feeling to sit in gratitude everyday. 🙂
