An update from my week...
A friend of mine back home is going through a really tough time right now.
And as I live abroad, I haven't been able to do much to support her.
I was looking at my son today, and thinking how much of being a mom is about balance.
I was watching him play, as he lined his cars up and made little “brrm, brrm” noises, and I was filled with an overwhelming sense of love.
And other times - as I’m sure you can understand - it’s super tough.
Sometimes I write a newsletter I’m really proud of: I’m pleased with the content, and confident it will help people.
And I might get zero response to those newsletters!
My in-laws stayed with us for three weeks over Christmas... and while it was lovely to see them, having guests for three weeks is tiring!
I'm starting this post with a sad tone, but there's an inspiring message I want to get across.
Over the course of this year I’ve unsubscribed from a ton of newsletters.
Some I didn’t read any more; others I had outgrown.
But some were bloggers whose work I used to love!
Today I want to share a simple exercise to help you feel good.
A friend told me about it, and I think we can all benefit from it.
For many of us, the topic of work comes up a lot.
More specifically: finding work we love.
Today I want to talk about something I expect we all do from time to time:
Putting off little jobs, until they become HUGE jobs in our head!
While I’m still feeling sad from the past few weeks (when I lost a friend), I also know the importance of looking forward, while keeping loved ones in your heart.
This week I’ve been thinking of ways I can honour the people I’ve lost... and one of those ways is to make our lives as rich as we can, with them in mind.
