Taking the time to do the things that are “good” for you can be easier said than done.
Writing helps me process all of my fast, wild, and varied thoughts and emotions. It helps me express myself and connect with others.
It helps me build community, offer support and guidance, and be of value.
It reminds me that creativity (from someone who never thought I was creative) is actually a part of me, and it’s an essential element of my vitality and aliveness.
And yet, weeks go by when I don’t give myself the time and space to be with the words, to share them with you and others. Because taking the time to give ourselves the things that fuel us can be challenging. I am the first to admit to my perpetual doing, doing, doing way-of-living.
And yet, sometimes I find the self-grace to forgive myself for what I haven’t made time for, so that I can then make the time for it… In this case – Write. Create. Share.
Where are you so busy doing that you aren’t making time for what’s “good” for you?
How do you want to spend your time connecting with yourself, your loved ones, your creativity, your leadership, your contribution, your community?
What would you have to let go of to make that happen?
Please take space and time to fuel yourself this week.
I’ll be doing some writing, reading (OMG, have you read American Dirt yet?!), and visiting (family in town for the first time in over a year!), and walking in the Spring dirt between the soccer games and flag football practice and birthday parties.
Thinking of each and every one of you.
Thank you for showing up, being a part of this conversation, leaning into your courage to live a more “naked” life, and exploring how you live, love, and lead.
This is a remarkable community.
Much love and more “nakedness,”
