Has it been a crazy week for you?
Once again, I’m shocked at how it has become Friday again. Slowing down has to be an intentional act for me anymore. I know that many are feeling the same way and I felt like today’s Friday Favorites was a perfect time to share some inspirational posts.
I’ve said these two words to myself often. I keep remembering what my body used to do, the workouts I did, the yard work I managed and how I simply lead my life. How many times do you compare the current you to who you used to be? This post made me stop and be grateful rather than criticize and I think you will feel the same.
Emily from Ember Grey spoke to me in every post she wrote this week but this piece stands out. I’ve been telling myself lately about situations”It’s coming. Just hang on.” The truth is, each of us are waiting for something to happen. Regardless of what we are waiting for, it sucks. This is a must read.
Lindsay from Bourbon, Lipstick and Stilletos asks us to think about who we share the table of life with. As women, it is so easy to fall into the trap of feeling we don’t belong and being jealous over what another has, be it looks or success. I still want to hope there will be a day that as women we genuinely look at each other and offer support rather than shade.
Sarah from Bitchy But Bubbly (don’t you love that name), encourages you to acknowledge that you can’t change where you are if you don’t know who you are. One of the first exercises I encourage a client to do is write a list of what they like and who they are. Just like a map, we can’t figure out where to go without knowing where we are.
I loved the shirt of this pajama set from Target so much that I traveled across town to get my size. inhale. exhale. dream is a great mantra for everyone.
What you missed from me:
Don’t forget to slow down this weekend!
