Get a Cup of Tea and Let's Hang Out Together!
We avoid it at all costs - after all, we were taught that in school, if we fail a test, or fall off the monkey bars, we're not going to pass our classes, we're going to be laughed at, we aren't going to be "cool", or "rich" or, "successful".
So we do...

Sometimes we carry too much. We say we will "deal with it later" but we don't. We push it down and then something else comes along that we have to carry, so we push that down as well, and on and on.
Here's the thing:
It's ok to let it out.
It's ok to cry, howl,...
Welcome to a new month, new week and new Monday!
This week will go the way you want it to - you have a choice to follow the flow or create your own reality.
What I mean is this: whatever happens, you have the choice in how you react to it. You can take any event - positive or negative - and look...
Today, take a moment to connect to the Earth.
You know, that big, blue ball that floats through space?
The one we live on, but don't always give a second thought to?
Yeah, that Earth.
Connect with it today.
Earth day is coming and we need to realize that we are more alike with Her than we are...

They say patience is a virtue.
I don't know who "they" are, but I certainly have days where I am really lacking in that virtue!
Here's the thing, though; we really need to learn it, especially when it comes to ourselves and our goals.

Take a quiet moment for yourself.
Place a hand over your heart space and one over your abdomen.
Close your eyes if you are comfortable.
Whether you are seated or standing, notice how you feel.
How do you feel, right now, in this moment?
What emotions are...
Let's take a moment, just a moment, and breathe.
Sit for a moment, finding your comfortable seat, so that you are sturdy and grounded.
Relax your shoulders away from your ears.
Place a hand over your heart space, another over your abdomen.
Feel your breath as you breathe naturally.

We've all been there.
We know what we *have* to do.
Maybe we even *want* to do it.
But we get caught up in the "how's", "why's", "what-if's", "when's".
We get so caught up in the nitty-gritty, and trying to make it all "perfect", or waiting...
It's a new week - how will you make the most of it?
I don't mean by "being productive" in our society's sense of the word, where you judge your worth by your hustle or productivity or sales.
I mean, how will you make the most of your week with YOU?
Move your body at least 10...
Happy Saturday! Hopefully this is a day off for you (if not, re-read this on your "Saturday", whatever that is for you!), and I hope you are enjoying being in the present moment, at least a little bit.
Take a breath.
Let your shoulders drop from your ears, belly soften a bit.
Close your eyes.

Really, the caption in the image says it all.
We rush through life, producing, hustling, rush, hurry, grind, cram.
Then we get to the end of the day, the week, or finally to our vacation and what happens?
We crash and burn, baby.
