Returning to me


I said I was taking some time off from blogging in June, and while I'm not quite ready to come back completely yet, I'm dipping my toes and testing the water, because pretty soon I'll be jumping back in with a splash.

The quiet has been good for me. I was running on fumes before, and I've given my mind time to settle down.

I'm seeing posts about summer goals and reading pledges and for the first time I'm happy to simply read about these challenges instead of needing to participate in all of them.

My goal for May was to be kinder to myself and I was...physically.

But June is about being gentle with myself emotionally. I'm okay with coming home and reading a book, instead of getting on the computer; not stressing about a blog post but rather making dinner, and letting myself re-discover this magical year.

This summer is going to be health-focused. I'll be working with a Holistic Health Consultant (more on that later) in addition to changing how I look at eating and exercising in an effort to mitigate PCOS symptoms

I'm going to be kind to myself, relax, and let go - which I think is going to make for some interesting blog posts!

How is summer treating you so far?

I can't wait to hear about the Holistic treatment. I'm a huge believer in Reiki.

I am glad you are taking some time for yourself and being kinder to yourself for emotionally and physically! That is so important, but not easy to do. I really was tough on myself in the month of May as I prepared to take the CFA because the material/tests are so dang hard, it made me start to question myself/my abilities.

But the test is over and my summer has started and I am loving it already. :) It's been great to fill my calendar with social activities. I have a quiet weekend at the lake coming up and I can't wait to curl up with a good book!

So glad you are back (even if you are just tipping your toes in the water). I missed you!

Was thrilled to see this update on my FB status last night. It's SO necessary to be kinder to yourself. I took a week off from blogging not too long ago and it was so nice. I kind of wanted to keep taking a break, to be honest.

I'm trying really hard to just do what I can do, which sometime is not that much at all... so I just keep putting one foot in front of the other for the time being.

Can't wait to read what this summemr has in store for you!
