I just returned from a wonderful and much needed vacation. My guy, Jeff, and I took a week off to frolic in Cabo San Lucas Mexico. We immersed ourselves in sun, sand, and ocean! And, today having returned to work, I can truly feel the benefits of taking time off. You all know how much I love my work; but even for me, the break did wonders for my heart, mind, and soul.
Slowing life down a bit, redirecting our attention to nature, the outdoors, ourselves, and to those we love allows us to recharge and replenish our souls. And usually during these times we give ourselves the time and space to play. Even as adults, playfulness is vital since it reminds us to not take ourselves too seriously, and to rediscover that carefree spirit within us.
So while you are taking care of everyone else in your life, don’t forget to nurture and nourish your soul. Here is my Mantra. I hope it becomes yours too.
Rest with Tranquility
Play with Abandon
Laugh with Spirit
Love with Passion
