Wow. It has been a whirlwind kind of month. May flew by with my birthday celebration mixed in, a new garden, lots of time with The Man, and planning/getting ready for summer camp, a very exciting time for staff and kids alike. Also, I just returned from my trip to Colorado where I got to see and be part of my best friend's wedding. It felt so good to be back in the mountains again. While on my trip, I finished the book by Gretchen Rubin, "The Happiness Project," and really enjoyed it. In Colorado, I got a lot of great "Jen Time," lots of walks, rocking on the deck while drinking some yummy morning coffee, yoga, walks, and thinking time.
That's what happens when you travel alone.
So today, Jamie Ridler asks: What Do You Wish To Begin? which is an absolutely perfect prompt.
I wish to begin...
...my morning yoga & meditation practice. To have consistency in my practice will allow me to get in touch with my spiritual self over and over again.
...working consistently on my finances and budget. My goal is to really find a system that works for me, that is sustainable and that induces joy and abundance rather than fear and lack.
...going to bed early and making time to read an journal. I also want to begin gratitude journaling, a point that Gretchen Rubin talks about in her book.
...experimenting in the kitchen more and planning meals for The Man and I so we are eating healthfully and local. Yummy!
...a volunteer project/opportunity of sorts. Whether that is in the area of mental health advocacy, a field I am super passionate about, or reading to kids on the weekends, I don't know. But what I do know is that I need to start giving back.
All in all, this is what I am working on and also, so much more. Here is to an amazing June!
