My word for this year is build. My focus is on three areas, my work, my connections with people who share the same interests, and my health. Towards the end of the month I take some time to reflect upon what I have accomplished. It is so easy to get caught up in the every day drama of life that we forget where we are going. So this year I promised myself that I would not forget what I wanted to accomplish but actually celebrate each step along the way. This month was again focused on health. I have been building upon the foundation I started years ago. I am more conscious of the choices I make and the way that I am taking care of myself. I am building and keeping a healthier lifestyle one choice at a time. What I have noticed is that people are so willing to share what works for them. Sara, from A Sharing Connection wrote that she keeps a pretty pitcher of water on her countertop. Since I have never been able to make myself drink enough water, I thought I would see if this makes a difference for me too. It does. Having the water in a pretty pitcher reminds me to take a glass. Thank you so much Sara for not only reading my blog for taking the time to make a suggestion that makes a big difference.
Self-care is an important part of leading a creative life. When we eat right, get enough sleep, and exercise it is easier to create and build the life we want to live. I hope that you will take the time to take care of yourself. And if you have any tips that will help me continue to build my healthier lifestyle, I would love to hear them.
When you share your gifts and your talent with the world, magic happens. Let the magic begin!
