Summer brings on new experiences and the chance to declutter. During the winter months, we tend to hunker down and almost hibernate. Summer, on the other hand, offers a time to explore, change things up, and live a little more freely.
With summer break in full swing, Emma left for a week long camp in Lake City, Michigan about 6 hours from where we live. I was feeling a little anxious about sending her. She’s been to camp before but never 6 hours away. This mama was definitely feeling out of her element, but I knew that she was in good hands and also knew that she needed to live and enjoy new experiences.
I’ve always loved my birthday month. May is such a beautiful time of the year. I enjoy the excitement in the air. Everyone starts to come out of their homes from the long winter. Trees and flowers start blooming. Kids are finishing up school. Just so much is happening during this time of the year.
I want to share a powerful experience I had earlier this month. During my morning meditation, I became completely overwhelmed with Love. I tapped into an experience that was the opposite of what I believed it to be. As I felt this emotion tears filled my eyes, and it felt like I had released years of self-BLAMING.
Happy January! We’ve made it through our first week of 2016. Yeah! I find starting a new year exciting. I get the chance to reflect, plan, and think of some fun things to do over the next 12 months. Self-reflection is one of my favorite things to do, and I like to do it at the beginning of the year instead of trying to cram it in at the end of the year.
