As the lesson year is drawing closer to its end, I’m reflecting on the importance of taking it easy. We labor hard all thru September to June. We get up early, brave the chilling winter temperatures, work for our buck (or Starbucks, ha ha) – giving our hearts and energy to our employer. We’re good people who want the best for our loved ones. So, we also deserve a break. We deserve to get up in the morning and have nothing of obligation to do. For once. For a brief moment.
As July ushers in, I challenge you to make time just for you. Celebrating the year gone by. All those moments when the going got tough, but you pulled it thru. You were tougher than you thought you could ever be. You made magic happen in your own, unique way. Pamper yourself with things, people and places you like. Smell the flowers. Sit under the tree. Most of all, grant yourself the permission to chill.
