Welcome to Your Week!
Spring encourages us to make changes. Instead of overwhelming yourself with an "Extreme Makeover," think of starting small.
When we go away for a weekend or a business trip, returning home is bittersweet. Remember to be kind to yourself on that Monday morning!
Thank you for starting your week with us! We encourage you to bring loving people into your life - listen in to find out how to do that today.
What will you choose to do today? Think about what you love when deciding! It will improve your energy and keep you moving forward!
I found this incredible inspiring and appropriate for what I am going through. Trying to reconnect with what I am passionate about, the last few years for me have drove me into an alley where I left no room for my "life". So in this new journey I am widening that path, making way for what makes me vibrate. It is not an easy task, and it is definitely slow, but I am certainly on for that ride. I am a great dancer, I love sunsets and the vastness of the sky, I love to teach kids how to swim, I love spending time with friends and family, I love learning and of course so much more (but of course this time I am taking it easy, realizing that I can't do it all) Enjoying what I can do, in the moment that I can do it.
Thanks for your words; they painted a delightful picture of this process of choosing for me, Aida
Great messsage, and wonderful words from Aida. I feel what you wrote: "drove me into an alley where I left no room for myself". And, Reggie, "if you spend all your energy in self improvement, there's nothing left for enthusiasm". I know that's paraphrased, but it applies to me. And I'm pretty darn stubborn about breaking those habits. I have to learn and re-learn. Someone has to tell me every day. My "job" is to find a real way to tell myself that each day.
Aida, how wonderful that you love teaching kids to swim. I can imagine how joyful that is when they float for the first time, or cross the pool the first time.
Thank you, Reggie and Aida.
Seeing the children I have worked with progress from being stick poles, many times frightened and clinging to me with a powerful force, to enjoying themselves as they enter the water and to see them floating freely and joyfully is very empowering.
It is very interesting that as I am describing this to you, this is what I feel I am wanting for my life. Not to live in fear or with lack of confidence, but to enjoy myself more in the process and learn to be. AHH!!! This has been my ahha moment for today: Learning to Float in the pool of my life :) :) :), so here I go floating away!!!
Thanks again, Aida
