I get it. Really, I do. Life seems like a pressure-packed existence with no room to exhale. Everyone I know is on the run – in a perpetual state of DOING. 

Learning to lighten up, ease up and let go of things that may have mattered…once…but are just weighty anchors now might be wise. 

But yeah, you’re right. I know what you’re thinking. That takes time, too. Time to process, mull and let your heart speak so it can guide your head. 

Summer is the best time to take stock. Do a little personal inventory of priorities and it’s easier than you think. Two steps: 

  • Grab your favorite cold beverage (I’m partial to iced tea, extra lemon) and stare at a few clouds; ruminating on how you use your time.  
  • Reconsider obligations or activities that aren’t productive — aren’t even a wee bit fulfilling.  Maybe it’s a recalibration of your expectations – for yourself or others?  

You have my permission – and encouragement 😊 – to shut down and listen to your always smart and savvy inner voice.  

I know I’m not telling you anything new.  Wisdom comes from the little ones, too.  The pic of daughter Delaney is evidence. At three she understood the objective – live large and laugh as much as possible!

I also love the wisdom from Ferris Bueller.  He said it best:  

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Be well!
