I just returned from a wonderful singing workshop with the divine Maggie Wheeler and Arnae Batson at the Art of Living Retreat Center (join them and the amazing Heather Houston for a virtual song circle October 10th!). I lead community song circles and loved this powerful opportunity to connect with other women through voice.
Stepping away this past weekend helped me realize that my schedule is too full. Yes, I’m a work-life balance speaker, self-care author and coach/advocate for living intentionally. I practice what I preach, and still, I pack in too much. Today I’m spending time with my calendar and saying, “No. Or, not now,” to some things so I can say, “YES!” to what matters most. Check out my two minute video below and consider joining me as I explore the power of the PAUSE!
Want more? Read Is Your Pace Sustainable? and perhaps carve out some time reflect on where you’re directing your energy this fall. My favorite mantra? Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Drop me a line, I’d love to hear from you.
