As i get older, I’m learning to embrace imperfection and know that life is a journey and not everything always ‘works out’.
I’ve been trying to live in the moment and be more present. I am constantly trying to stop and be aware of things around me that I may have missed before. I’m noticing beautiful flowers and birds – so many birds flying in a flock and dipping and swooping without bumping into each other. We could learn a lot from birds. I know I’m guilty of falling into automatic pilot and being oblivious of a lot around me.
Lately I’ve been feeling more and more invisible. Not to myself necessarily but to others and in different situations as I’ve been observing this recently as I take it all in. I see being invisible as a good and bad thing and thought I’d dive into this a bit deeper.
We’re a small company with amazing individuals and I wanted you to know – we’re a company with heart and we care.
I just finished reading an amazing book, Total Focus, that put so many priorities in perspective in my life and I felt like I needed to share this with my people. You’re my people.
We all have a tribe. You do. Plus you really need your tribe. It keeps you just a little bit more sane than you would be otherwise without one. You’d be floating around in nothingness. No one likes that feeling.
I’ve been paying attention to some of my tribes – I actually have a number of them when I think about it. We all do.
In my morning yoga class – where I find my creative inspiration – the teacher ended the class with some inspiring words that really resonated with me and I’m already implementing his strategy. S.T.O.P.
I can feel an amazing movement in the energy all around me. This feeling of hope and something bigger as we come together in a common ground of connection. This change in both women and men enables me to literally feel the groundswell of humans coming together and wiping the slate clean to start over.
I keep having conversations with friends, family and even acquaintances and there is a common thread – everyone is feeling overwhelmed. This is an epidemic! How can we help this anxiety and worry and stop the self-talk in our heads from making things so much worse than they are? Or even if they are really bad – and we all come face to face with unfathomable challenges – how do we get through the day and feel like we have an element of control back in our life?
I love a good list of rules and there is always something else to learn! Who doesn’t want to be a better person? Or be liked just a little bit more by others?
C’mon, we all do! I heard these rules on a podcast the other day and I just had to share them.
Better yet, what’s your partner or child’s love language? Do you know?

I’m a mum. I know how easy it is to look after everyone else in your family and just keep going. One foot in front of the other and whoosh, the day is over. You collapse into bed and are fast asleep in seconds. You don’t know why you’re so tired and have no energy. You get overwhelmed so easily and find simple things so difficult. I always thought tomorrow I’ll start looking after myself, I can handle this. Then the wheels start to fall off.
As my children get older I am more aware of building memories. I see them pulling away and wanting to spend more time with their friends in their own endeavors which is natural and normal. But it makes me aware of how precious time is and making the most of each and every day.
