“An empty lantern provides no light. Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly.”
With only a few months until Christmas, are you feeling a little anxious about getting everything done in your business before the end of the year? If so, then you are not alone.
This is often the time we take stock of how far we've come in the year, and how much we still need to do in order to tick everything off on our yearly to do list.
I myself have started to do this, but with a few projects on the go and home and family life being a little crazy, I haven't had a chance to do it. In fact I'm feeling a bit tired juggling all the balls. And with the juggling I must admit I've dropped a few, and haven't kept up to speed with my weekly posts recently.
It's also come to that time of year when we go away for school holidays at one of the most beautiful and unspoiled places not too far away...Brooms Head in Northern NSW.
There is a big group of us, adults and kids and we have a wonderful, unplugged time just being in the moment, swimming, walking, talking, creating, laughing and eating.
There's nothing like coming together in the spirit of community, and at the same time allowing ourselves some space, and the gift to switch off from the outside world, switch off the time clock and be fully present to each other and nature.
So I thought I'd just let you know I haven't forgotten you. I'll be back on board after the school holidays with regular posts and information. I'm off for much needed rest and restoration for my heart and soul (and sanity) in the spirit of self-care. And upon my return I start a new health and wellness program so that I can feel like my old self again.
How about you? Are you in need of self-care? If so, I encourage you to take time out from your busy schedules and make time for yourself. The world will still go again and it will be there when you get back.
Ciao for now...
