Honoring Ourselves

I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that I’m only human (but not really).  It actually feels freeing to admit and bring attention to the fact (in case you haven’t noticed) that I haven’t blogged much the past few weeks.  Ok, more than a few.  It started in March, when I was sick and not up to doing much of anything.  I thought as soon as I felt better, I’d be back in the swing of things but that hasn’t happened.

In April, I was still recovering and every time I tried, I just felt like there wasn’t much there to give.  Then May came around and I was hosting our second Inspired Blog Challenge and I thought that would do the trick.  NOPE.

With that, came some guilt and shame over the fact I was the host and not participating fully – which is important to me.  I wrestled with the why’s and just knew I had to go with the flow.  I felt better physically but some things continued to surface emotionally that threw me for a loop and, between dealing with this old shit I was releasing and a desire to play, I’ve focused on doing what needs to be done and working around 8 hours a day.

This hasn’t allowed me time to do all I’d like to do in my business but I’m done beating myself up.  Sometimes we just need time to heal or we just need time to play…whatever the reason or need, I feel it’s really important to do what we need to do, honoring ourselves and the direction this journey guides us to go.  If we are connected on Facebook, you may have seen some of these already.  If not, here’s a sampling of what I’ve been up to this past month.

duluth deer

A last minute trip to Duluth with my best friend with no plans or hotel rooms until the day we left. This beauty appeared and stood as I took picture after picture of her when we got a bit lost looking for Enger Park.

lowry bridge

A random, last minute trip at nightfall to the Lowry Bridge on Memorial Day to take a few shots of the lights. The bridge is usually blue but the LED lights can be changed to any color.

Minnehaha Falls

Another random outing, this time to Minnehaha Falls. I found this beauty as I walked along the creek. She appears to be open and waiting for whatever comes her way.

Centennial Park in Edina, MN

This cute little guy was checking me out as I walked through Centennial Park before our Mother’s Day brunch at Pinstripes (awesome place)!


A last minute trip to the zoo. I love this guy!

And generally enjoying every moment in every space with every person, including myself.
