“Smell the sea, and feel the sky. Let your soul and spirit fly.” ~Van Morrison
The world may be gearing up again, but I am slipping into summer mode and slowing down.
My actions now include:
- Inhaling still moments, versus rushing to busily connect.
- Savoring rich connections from afar, not quite feeling right to be in crowded restaurants, airports and planes (still love those off the beaten path type of local places to eat and meet).
- Taking exquisite care of myself —body, mind and spirit.
- Making time to be fully present to all those I care about, listening more thoughtfully.
- Observing more of life, from a higher perspective of a bigger plan.
Peace and calm are my new driving forces this summer, after a hectic 18 months rebranding my business.
To help us all take in more appreciative moments, I am thrilled to have Kristi Nelson, Executive Director of A Network for Grateful Living as my podcast guest next month. She is also the author of Wake Up Grateful, released just last November. Her book is a perfect summer read.

INSIGHTS ON TAKING IN/RECEIVING
Taking in is so much deeper and transformative than intentionally opening our hearts to receiving. It entails reaching for what we want, need and deserve—then accepting it in.
Sometimes, we need to sit back and spend time getting clear on what we really want—and integrate our deservedness by claiming our worthiness to have our desires fulfilled. Email email@example.com to learn more about my six-session “RECLAIMING THE WORTHY YOU” coaching package and give yourself a summer treat of self-care.
Respite is calling to me now for the next couple weeks…looking forward to seeing who will pull up a chair and join me in extended moments of tranquility.
Wishing you all a joyful, soulful, and happy summer.
With love and blessings,
