As the seasons change and signs of Spring appear, it seems the perfect time for Reflection.
Taking the time to reflect is the 1st R in my book – “Reflect Renew Refresh” – the 3 R’s for an Inspired Life!
Before we can move forward, we need to assess where we are, what has transpired, and where we want to go.
For the last few days, I have been more quiet, more reflective, and somewhat staying to myself. I am looking at my routines and rituals, my likes and dislikes, my preferences and desires. I am reviewing what I would like to change up and what I definitely want to continue.
I am looking at what is working (right thoughts, words and actions, exercise, healthy eating, rest, spending time with my husband, being out in nature, pacing myself).
I am also looking at what needs to shift (spending more time reading, meditating, pursuing new and contributing to existing consulting clients, marketing my books, identifying charities and support groups to work with).
Take the time to reflect and jump start your Spring!
By taking care of yourself first, then you will be able to be your best self and can help others.
You may think that is selfish!
And that is okay – because It’s important to take care of yourself first. Many years ago, when I was in my teens, a dear friend said to me ‘If you do not take care of yourself, who will?”. That statement startled me, however has stayed with me and helped me to this day.
I give thanks for this incredible journey of Life! I do not want to take anything for granted.
So after my Reflecting, I can confidently move forward to Renew my commitments and to Refresh my spirit.
Happy Spring Rebirth everyone.
With Light and Love,
