Invest in Yourself
It’s the week after fall solstice and I’m suddenly super tired. I went to sleep at 9:00 last night and woke up at 4:30 this morning. I rolled over, put my earplugs in and listened to my morning meditation. After a half hour of that I did my Qigong and now I’m sitting here writing to you. I’m coming off of the intensity of summer. It’s time to sort through the harvest, can the veggies and fruit and compost the rest.
Except I don’t know how to can yet!
I’m sharing this because it’s a metaphor to how life is meant to be lived. When we are following the laws of nature life, becomes fluid. We can evolve into our true purpose in life.
Why am I sharing this?
I hear so many excuses and reasons why my clients cannot invest in themselves. Whether it be time, money or feeling relied upon, the biggest resource we have in life is the fruits we reap from nurturing ourselves.
I’m a single mother, my youngest son just started kindergarten and man is that a huge gift of time. I get up generally before them and when I don’t, I take a half hour after they’ve gone to school. Sure I have a ton to do but I have some secrets for you... This is where the magic happens!
The treasures that come when investing in yourself.
Tedious tasks become easier and are completed faster. I like things done quickly and I know if I push myself when it’s going against the grain inside of me, nothing is going to get done and I’m going to feel frustrated. If I begin with my Qi Gong or Meditate, I’m then ready to tackle the “little things”: like dishes, laundry and vacuuming!
A Little Bit Goes a Long Way. This is my motto because I’ve found it to be true and it’s a great reminder. This is what I tell my clients. Even giving yourself the first 5 minutes of the day will change your life. It’s the butterfly effect. It really doesn’t take much!
Naps are not a luxury, they’re a necessity. If you can’t find time in your day to close your eyes for 20 minutes you’re not following your purpose. I don’t personally believe we were put on the earth to suffer through life. Life is meant to be enjoyed.
When you take the tiny moments to take care of YOU, you will become more efficient. Your true self is unveiled. Little clues to the puzzle piece of you will become apparent. The reason in which you came to earth, if you believe that sort of thing, which I do, will be discovered.
And my last treasure is FREEDOM. One of my biggest values and one that I wish for all is freedom. And Freedom begins with you. You get to choose, this is your life, your experience. Wherever you think you’re shackled, I believe there is a way through.
And so I have some amazing ways for you to invest in yourself. Beautiful gifts I created from striding in my own purpose and true path in life.

As I complete this it’s now 6:00 a.m. and I’m about to go blend what I call my ‘Happy Drink’ (I will post the recipe soon). My kids should be awake shortly. I will be taken care of so I can be a fully present and energetic parent for those two beautiful beings They deserve the best version of me that I can give them.
Lots of Love,
