“You are a super star parent!!!”
Thank you for waking every morning to wipe another tush, cook another meal, make another bed, fold ANOTHER load of laundry, cook another meal, fold MORE laundry, snuggle, read a book, drive to soccer practice, make cupcakes, fold…….” Let’s just say, “Thank you for everything you do, everyday!” It might feel like it all goes unnoticed, but it ALL matters.
As the longer, warmer days drive us into action, it’s important that we continue to nurture ourselves so we can give more fully to the world. To most people, self-care might involve baths, saunas, yoga, massage, meditation, and other practices that require advance planning or money. How about we pause and instead look to the free and bountiful natural elements for inspiration? In our fast-paced world, we often times forget to access the simple beauty of nature all around us.
How are you all holding up this winter? Hopefully, staying warm, cozy, and healthy all around, but also savoring the delights of this darker, inward season. As we continue to gain more hours of sunlight and parts of the country experience unusually warm weather, it may be tempting to jump into a spring mindset and to start launching new projects and ideas! However, we are still two thirds of the way into our natural cycle of winter (from the solstice on Dec 21 until the vernal equinox on March 20) and it’s the perfect opportunity to embrace this slower, more mindful period of the year.
