Sometimes it is hard to get family together. Work, finances, differences of opinion and more can prevent you from being together. Focusing on the true meaning of the holidays can cut through all of that.
Focus on the moments with the people you love and the joy of the season. Things are nowhere near as important as the moments and the memories.
Do you find yourself without enough time to achieve your goals? Are you focusing on the right things? The blog this week talks about prioritizing your time to achieve your goals.

This time last week we were freezing our bits off in Chicago ❄️ ⛄️. Fishing 🎣 on a peaceful lake at my mums house and watching the world go by. I vowed in those precious moments to not allow myself to return to the ‘run-ragged’ state of mind I’d been in pre christmas. Full of anxiety and stress, rushing thoughtlessly from one thing to another without pausing to breathe. It’s only day 1 but it’s a good start. 👍❤️
I follow and cultivate my own curiosity. I think curiosity is one of the top two or three human characteristics. It's something that I really like about myself. [...] I want to understand stuff! I want to understand people! Following my curiosity so frequently leads me to better life decisions and better business decisions but also - just feeling better! You're never going to feel bad about your whole life if you loved people and you were curious. I mean, that's kind of all I want!
I woke up this morning and just smiled... today I am back!!!
It has been a slow start for sure ~ but a gentle one, taking in the subtle changes required to reconnect with you guys: my beautiful soul family. Oh, how I have missed and loved you all!
I am standing in the kitchen listening to Of Monsters and Men, and the sounds of onions frying courtesy of Ollie behind me. There is singing and dancing and food tasting. This is it... this is life, in its fullest flavors!
My month away was both ordinary and glorious!!! It was:
birthdays and board games, cuddles and munchkins and wizard of oz plays, chilly mornings and cosy bed-nests, pens and pencils, connection and solitude, meditation in cold cars and on warm carpets, lights and night, and family gatherings and full moons and baths and laughter at nothing and everything!!! It was like a symphony made of all the colours of life.
I knew I needed that break, but it was more than I could have imagined... I didn't get to finish certain projects... I didn't even get to start the videos I have been planning for so long!!! Hahaha, but life moves in, and I am not perfect, but I am human and that is even better than perfect 😉. I learned in the most bodily way that I need to take an in-breath for every exhale ~ I need to breath in the world before I can continue exhaling my creations... and there are those pauses in between too, where the magic happens.
I learned that I need a few boundaries when it comes to time spent on here... actually let me rephrase that, cause I don't want you to think I am setting up walls. No way!!! I want to invite you all in with big bear hugs! But I do need to utilize this app as a tool, not letting it use me or carry me away from all those bigger things I have planned! I may not be able to respond to everyone from now, but know that I love you and I am thinking of you, and will reply when I can!!!
In the end of all things, it is just love. That is what happened. I dove head first into love.
I feel there is so much more to say, and I am sure it will come out in the next few weeks.
Till tomorrow, dear hearts...
(and yes, I have hole-y socks 😋)
Time will always be your enemy if you look at it with a fixed as opposed to a growth mindset. This is where you need to focus less on finding time and more on making time.
Many things are not equal
But everyone gets the same
24 hours a day.
7 days a week.
We all make time for what we really want.
I Give Thanks.
