Ways to reflect on the year- Friday 5

Hey Beautiful Souls,

I actually hesitated on sharing any posts about reflecting on the year . I am not as anxious to reflect in the same ways I have been since the loss of my father this year.

However, I think being able to take a little bit of time or honor a ritual I have had for years (even if it isn’t the exact same as it has been in the past years) is important (even if it’s tender)

Here are 5 ways to reflect on the year…

  1. Write a letter to the year… Dear 2017… (so far mine feels like Dear 2017… what the f…..  since But I am still pondering it.
  2. Choose some photos that you feel tell the stories of the year coming to a close.
  3. Write it out… Here are some prompts:  Ways my word showed up this year, this year I felt, this year my most difficult time/experience/lesson was, this year I showed up /rocked it in/with, This year I created, embraced, released.
  4. Look through your planner/calendar and pull out what you felt stood out from the big moments to the little things and write those down.
  5. Sum up the year in 6 words (or some other limited number)

Permission- Self and Soul Care Saturday

Hey, Amazing Souls!

So many of us are living lives that are fulfilling what we think is expected of us. Sometimes it’s what we were told, what we

Give yourself permission to…

Stop

Start

To scan over a book and skip through bits and considered it read (unless your trying to do a book report :D)

To unplug

To binge watch

To try out that “woo woo” practice

To stick to what works and what feels really good

To ask for what you really want or need (this goes for asking yourself too)

To have a spontaneous dance party (of 1 or more)

To use the good stuff (ingredients, dishes, makeup, clothes, ideas) and stop trying to save it for….

To stop reading those personal growth books (blogs, articles etc)

To keep on reading those personal growth books (blogs, articles etc)  because you truly love it!

To add flowers and plants to your place even if you don’t have a green thumb and they may not thrive and that’s ok… enjoy it while it’s there!

To do this holiday season in a way that feels right to you, even if it’s not what your tradition has been or what’s expected of you.

You have permission to… (fill in with whatever is tugging at you!)

Super inspiring quotes-Friday 5

Hey Beautiful Souls!

I love quotes, they have the power to inspire action, contemplation, laughter, and tears. This week’s Friday 5 I wanted to share 5 awesome quotes with you.

You can copy and paste and print it out, put it on your inspo board, stick it in your journal (or write it in there) use it as a prompt or just soak in the goodness 😀

  1. “Stop treating yourself as an afterthought. Eat delicious food, walk in the sunshine, jump in the ocean. Say the truth you are carrying in your heart like a hidden treasure. Be silly, be kind, be weird. There is no time for anything else.” – Richard Gere
  2. Don’t surrender all your joy for an idea you used to have about yourself that isn’t true anymore. -Cheryl Strayed
  3. ““Why are you knocking on every other door? Go knock at the door of your own heart.” – Rumi”
  4. You tell the tale of your life by the stories you repeat in your days. -Mary Anne Radmacher
  5. “Between whatever happens to me and my response to it is a space.In that space is my freedom and power to choose my response. And in response lay my growth and happiness.”~Stephen Covey

Have you run across an inspiring quote lately, share it with me!!

What do you want to feel (this holiday) – Journal Prompt

Hey Lovely Souls!

Over here in the USA tomorrow is Thanksgiving (for those of us who celebrate that) and that often means there can be a lot of expectations (our own and others) and potential drama and overwhelm.

Ask yourself this one thing and let that be the main focus of your holiday coming up…

What do I want to feel?

Connected, Nourished, Present.

Don’t let the expectations be the thing that drives this holiday… There are some seasons in our lives where we just feel called to or need to mix it up (so to speak) in my little local family unit we are doing something totally different since it’s our first Thanksgiving without my Beloved Father.

I just want to feel connected this holiday season.

What do you want to feel?

Your worth- Tuesday Truths

Hey Beautiful Souls,

Your worth is not determined by how much you get done, how much money you make, what kind of car you drive… You are worthy as you are right here and right now.

You are enough, have done enough.
