Whooosh. Did another week just go by? I know life is busy and inboxes are full so sometimes we don't take the time to take a moment for ourselves. I know I'm guilty of that. Today, I'm asking you to slow down, pause and breathe. Tune into your heart and ask yourself:
What do you need right now?
That's exactly what I did last week. I gave myself permission to listen to what came up for me, without self-shaming for wanting to indulge myself. I always think I *should* be doing something. While I don't feel like I've accomplished much on my *to-do* list, I did on my *to-be* list. It's been a really wonderful week. Why?
I decided to have more FUN.
I'm not really good at that. It's a direction I'm choosing that is more reflective of the woman I am, and becoming. I admire people who work hard and play just as hard. It occurred to me that I'm not enjoying life as much as I should. So to have more fun I'm going to prioritize and plan it until it becomes natural again.
Obviously, I've always craved fun. After all I married a man who has been making me laugh for 25 years. Scottie's mantra is *there is fun to be done*.
Comedy has been stirring Scottie's spirit and he moved toward it. He just finished his 25th stand-up comedy performance and won a comedy competition including a cash prize. He moves onto to the final competition which sends the winner on an all-expense paid trip to Austin, Texas to perform at a well-known club.
Scottie has inspired me to find fun new adventures - whatever those look like for me.
