21 Days of Self-Care: Re-Treat Yourself Well

It's time to retreat yourself well. 21 days of self-care

21 Days to Re-Treat Yourself Well

(This event is closed.)

The need for self-care seems to hit when it is most inconvenient. Life gets busy.  Life piles it on.  Someone you care about needs a little extra care….or a lot.  And you are lift wondering how in the world to make it all work without dipping into reserves that already feel shallow.

Several years ago at the height of “going places” in my career as a helping professional, I got a hard taste of burn-out. Finding my way back to center meant balancing my busy schedule of pursuing my dreams while also committing to a consistent practice of meaningful self-care.

I have found that weaving this self-care into the rhythm of life is ideal.  If we make plans to take care of ourselves the same way we plan for taking care of business, we can have both.  If we don’t, we are often left wanting more of life and not having the energy or focus to make it happen.

With that in mind,  I have woven a spirit of renewal into a 21 day self-care e-course with Re-Treat Yourself Well.

When self-care takes a back seat, you can feel low of spirit, low of energy, and challenged to find your way back to the bright side of life again.

That is why I have designed Re-Treat Yourself Well, a 21 day self-care e-course, in a way that helps you consistently schedule a tiny bit of time for investing in yourself in a big way.

Self-Care Practice: Let the Love In

self care practice permission

Self-Care Practice:
Give Yourself Permission

Simple self-care is essential during times of high stress.  We often feel guilty or unworthy of giving to ourselves, especially during the holidays.  We have so much focus on getting for others, doing for others, and the importance of being in service, that we forget to include serving our own spirit.

This is not about being selfish or ego centered.  Far from it.  It is about building yourself up to the glory of all you really are….just for the simple act of existing.  You are worthy of so much.

These self-care ideas are a great gift of love to yourself.

Mother’s Day: By Nature or Nurture

Mother Nurture

Whether you are a mother by nature or nurture, I wish you a beautiful Mother’s Day.  Today is the perfect day to honor all the ways you give to others but is especially good for connecting with how you mother yourself during the year.

I have decided to shake Mother’s Day up a bit.  Even though I don’t have children, I have always felt an extremely strong sense of Motherhood.  I am a champion of children (both young and old) and take pride in the fact that I can create safety for others to be the best they can be.  I also feel myself going through the birthing process with all the many projects that are conceived in my heart and imagination.

This year, I decided to start a new personal practice. On Mother’s Day, I am going to celebrate the Mother in me.  I don’t have a specific plan.  Instead, each year I will check in on what I need.   Perhaps it will be to reflect on how I have nurtured others during the year, how I might like to make mothering a part of the year to come, or even to create a celebration with symbols that are meaningful to me.

Grandmother Hummingbird

My husband woke me up this morning telling me, “You have heard of Mother Nature, right?  Well, I think you must be Mother Nurture.”  It was a dear gift.  So whether you are Mother Nature, Mother Nurture or a bit of both, I would like to invite you to join me in honoring the mother in you.  I know for many women Mother’s Day is a day to be honored by others, but I think honoring ourselves can be just as valuable.

Keep Creating….

Re-story-ing my Life

IWB tour 060

I made it up the middle of the country.  I am sitting on beautiful Lake Geneva in Wisconsin, looking out the window at the Abbey Resort.  The sky is light blue with puffy little clouds, the water simmers with a restless kind of calm.  The trees outside my room (which are not a variety I am familiar with) have long strands of gold that hang from the limbs.  At there base on the side where the morning sun has not yet reached, a light layer of snow snuggles around budding stalks of green that looks like it may be the beginnings of blooming bulbs.

I feel like I am blooming.  The journey here has marinated my heart in a mix of stories from my past and about my future all while I live this new story in the present.  I am learning so much about myself.  I am falling so deeply in love with who I am that it scares me.  Why is it that love can frighten us so.

seeking wisdom

I turned 44 a few days ago and as I have shared here before, I have been re-story-ing my life.  When I was young, I lost my mother. She died at 45 and although I have tried to let that number mean nothing in my own life, it has some hold on me.  This year I am bound and determined to make it a year I will never forget, so that even if nothing were to happen to me….and I believe on most levels that I will be just fine….I will have NO REGRETS.  I will know I gave myself the callings of my heart whenever I could, that I connected deeply with the ones I loved and with the ones life put in my path. I will know I danced, I wrote, I played, prayed, and embraced joy at ever turn.

My word for the year is GIFT….and that is what I intend to be for others and myself this year.

I have more to share, but the day is so beautiful I just have to go embrace it.

I want to invite you to think about the story you are living in your life.  What of it would you change if you could?  Now, do one small thing to put that into action today.  I am living this year as if it was my last so that I don’t have to be fearful that it might be. I encourage you to lean into life.  If you are like me, you will find some peace in living life a bit more adventurously because you might find yourself taking it in more fully and deeply.  Nothing ventured nothing gained?  I am venuring!!!
