Last weekend I got to spend a fabulous weekend with a girlfriend just enjoying relaxing, connecting, and having zero plans! Let's just say our day ended with a hotel picnic of yummy goodies, wine, and a lot of Bridget Jones! Perfection.
She told me a story about her 4 (almost 5) year old. He was curious about who was on his mom's friend list. So they shared who was on each of their lists. Proud to say I made the 4 year old's list!
And then her son looked at her and asked the best question ever. He said, "mom, are you on your own list"? Out of the mouths of babes.
ARE YOU ON YOUR OWN LIST????
Right now I am thinking about this in terms of self-care through the holiday season. I also think this is a good year-round question, but for now, let's tackle the holiday's.
What are you doing to put yourself on (and perhaps even at the top) of your own list? You know that airline instruction, "put your own mask on first"? Kinda like that.
Take a few minutes to write down what your intentions are for the holidays. How do you want to feel? What do you want to experience. After you do this, turn the page over and write down all the things you will do to support you these intentions.
