Summer Salad


Welcome, friends!

So happy to be sharing with you all this week!  

I just want to encourage everyone who is fighting for that daily gratitude and presence(not always easy) and also continuing to press on towards their dreams and goals. Life is hard sometimes, and to all those who embrace it, I applaud you! I find it is something I am struggling with lately. Blessedly, I have little ones who remind me that all we know we have is the present moment and to really lean into it, and glean from it.

So, we addressed being present but how do you keep making moves toward your goals without allowing the future to steal your present?

Making intentional “you” time each week or each day a priority, is a fab way to begin. Take action steps during this time, be it research, to do lists, etc. This is a form of active self-care and it is hugely beneficial and very rewarding. 

If you are one of those that continually thinks ahead, make sure to write little post it notes for yourself or set reminders in your phone to be grateful for your present! Gratitude paves the way for clarity when thinking about your future and peace when you are focused on the moment in front of you.
