12 Mar Spring Break
Good morning from Barbados. I have sand between my toes, there’s a salty breeze, and my hair is braided in fun Dutch braids.
My wish for you this week is to find time. Find time— be it an hour, a day, or a week to relax and recharge your soul. How are you able to give 100% of yourself to your job, your family, your significant other, your community… if you don’t take care of yourself? This goes back to last week’s article titled “Number One”. If you don’t look out for number one who does? Most people are celebrating spring break this week (or next week). Now in my 30s, so spring break is slightly different from when I was younger. LOL. But that doesn’t mean I don’t take a break. I have been working nonstop since Christmas, and before that Thanksgiving, so this is exactly what I needed.
I inspire you and send you this wish of love, compassion, and grace with the intention of you finding time for yourself to recharge. If something is important to you, you will find time. Please do this for you.
Especially if you live in the northeast, where the temperatures are still freezing— maybe just go to a day spa and enjoy being in a hot tub, the steam room/sauna and get a massage. That sounds like an amazing mini vacation to me. Or maybe you prefer curling up by the fireplace with a good book and your dog. I love that idea too.
Whatever this looks like for you, make sure you just do something. If you can’t go on a trip today, that’s ok. How about you plan for your next trip? Book your hotel or flight today? Now you have something to look forward to.
Sending you love, sunshine and positive vibes from here in Barbados. XO, Laura
