Several times this week I have had the privilege of encouraging people to claim their voice. Speaking our mind can be challenging, and yet, if we don’t, we often end up feeling powerless. Though it may be anxiety provoking, courageously speaking our truth, creates a life aligned within ourselves.
Fall of 2018 has brought a bit of frenzy into my life. Our household is in flux, as our kidlet entered kindergarten and we now have a firm schedule which we are all learning to adhere to. Though for many years September has not brought an official start or change in schedule, I have always found there is an energy about it, as projects that were on hold over summer restart and a different pace takes hold.
They do say time flies when you're having fun! I hope that you have been enjoying the longer days of sunshine and making some time for self-care. As you may (or may not!) have noticed, my self-care has continued to involve limiting my screen time, opting instead for other ways to pass my time. What have I been doing you ask?
Well... the past month I have really embraced the concept of minimizing.
It is hard to believe that it has already been nearly one month since I came home from India! What a fabulous trip - full of amazing family visits (including a traditional Indian wedding), some great sight seeing (like Elephanta caves) and unexpected wonder (such as the chance to visit a remote school run by a volunteer group - pictured above)!
