After more than six weeks of quarantine, and as we head towards the halfway point of the year, we’re still navigating uncharted waters, not knowing exactly how this crisis will play out, or exactly when we can expect our lives to get back to normal.
And I don’t know about you, but all this social distancing has reminded me of how important it is to stop and reflect every now and then. You see, it’s so easy to get caught up in checking off all the things, and always on the go-go-go that we end up losing sight of what it is, we set out to accomplish in the first place.
So, in the midst of celebrating Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, warmer weather, and the (albeit strange and somewhat anticlimactic) end of another school year, it’s the perfect time to not only celebrate YOU but to share some of the best tools that help support you in honing in on what really matters.
Because even in the midst of this crisis, we’d love to see you simplify and pair down so you can spend time doing the things that fill you up, the things that matter most, and the things that will change your life. So praise yourself for accomplishing what you have so far (yes even the little things count), soak up all the good books, people, and beauty life has to offer and step into living a life you absolutely love. You deserve it.
Here’s what you’ll find in this month’s issue:
