After dedicating much of my teenage years and 20s to my work and career, I have finally allowed myself more time for self-care and fun.
Time with mom.
I am on a new journey of self-care. Total self-care. Physical and Emotional well being. I am setting to a nightly routine and disconnecting from social media after journaling. In the morning I am trying to read and exercise. I am noticing that i am more productive during the day and READY to sleep. I am grateful it is going well as it is motivating. I have ready studies about productivity when you get up early and take time to wake up and start the day with intent. I am grateful for a husband who acknowledges that this transition is going to make me grumpy and conflict with his as well. I am grateful that he is supportive of me and has decided to join me on this journey.
so pleased you have a buddy on board. learning myself about self-care and its practices. i am seeing results. blessings on your self-care journey..
I’ve been out of shape lately, but I was able to run at my 10K pace without stopping for about 2 miles during my workout today.
Visiting this site – the quote of the day by the author of Kitchen Table Wisdom, the Lounge, today’s question.
I am grateful for life. Because if I didnt have life right now I wouldn’t be living the best life ever
The winter sunrise today is a glory. I think the birds agreed. They all sang gleefully.
My morning “practice” is going well. Waking up grateful, listening to the birds, stepping outside for sunshine on my face, breathing deep, ringing my serenity bell, making coffee, writing in my morning journal, praying & spending time in meditation. Yoga and walking as the day progresses. I am grateful I have the time and space for this “practice”.
“ All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.”
― Julian of Norwich
one of my favourite quotes, Nancy.
Such a wonderful quote by a wonderful woman – thanks, Nancy 🙂
If I choose gratitude this very moment, then this moment is a happy moment. it is a grace choosing gratitude
I am grateful for medical insurance so my husband can go to the doctor today. I know so many do not have this “luxury.”
Right now, in this moment, all is well in my life. I have a safe home, I have the help I need and the quiet I need and migraine tablets(!). All my needs are fulfilled right now. Wow, how blessed I am!!
So many things! After an extended rainy spring we finally got a day of glorious warm sun on Solstice yesterday. I went for two long walks, one with my sweetheart, holding hands as we always do when we walk. We have good friends we can ride bikes with who enjoy sitting and chatting with a beverage and who live nearby so it’s easy to hang out spontaneously. My work is productive with a lot of past effort beginning to pay off in a big way that is going to make positive change in my entire state. My health is good and so is my husband’s. My daughters have people who love them and work they’re good at. I finally have traction in my planning for a much-needed kitchen remodel and–miracle of miracles–the appliances I want are actually in a nearby warehouse and will be delivered in 4 weeks. I just had a wonderful “sisters weekend” with my sister and sister-in-law and got to talk, laugh, eat, shop, drink, and explore a small town for 3 whole days, including going to their first-ever Pride parade and cheering. I am fortunate to feel so much goodness in my life these days.
Yes, happy Pride Month! 🌈
Reversing the question, I have noticed that my daughter has consistently, for several months now, responsibly chosen the path of good health and wellness, including/related also a more positive outlook about “life”, and I am deeply grateful, and happy for and proud of her.
