You’ve made it through the school year during a global pandemic! Kudos to you – Be PROUD of yourself! Regardless of the platform you utilized during the school year – you did it – you are here at the heart of a new beginning – SUMMER!
Instead of focusing on what you gave up in 2020 (and some of 2021) – Ask yourself – WHAT DID I GAIN? Do I want to return to something I miss? What am I ‘ok’ leaving out?
Try reflecting on your EXPERIENCES this past year…
REFLECTION is a great way to learn something about yourself…
You might find you have gained resiliency, patience, or how you adapted to stay connected to what matters most to your heart…whatever it is what did you LEARN about yourself?
Notice what feelings came up and what was difficult, what was easy? Want to change something? Maybe you want to try something different…
Here’s what I noticed – it was difficult to stay on a schedule – adapting to changes I was not ready for – some unsavory habits were created (and some good ones I will keep).
Now try reflecting on what you want to see different – where can I create new and more fulfilling habits?
Here’s some fun and simple ways to CREATE your summer and stay connected to what matters most to your heart:
Look at summer as relaxation, renewal, rest, and maybe a RESET to CREATE what sings to your heart.
What are YOU looking forward to this SUMMER?
Proverbs 27:19 NIV, As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.
