The Beauty of Doing Nothing

This post may seem like a a counter intuitive post, but let’s talk for a moment about the beauty, and even importance, of doing nothing. 

Modern society tells us in order to be successful we have to work nonstop. Taking breaks are signs of weakness. But I’m saying forget all that. When we need to take breaks, we need to take real breaks. And that doesn’t mean going on your phone and social media for half an hour. I’m talking about unplugging. Doing absolutely nothing. 

I just woke up from a long and unexpected nap and I don’t feel the least bit guilty about it. Yes, I have lots of work to catch up on, but without stopping when it is needed, we are much more likely to burn out; and then comes the crash and burn. 

Busy work can be done even when tired and burnt out. But if you are looking to go beyond busy work and past the rat race, you need as much of yourself as possible to be able to create that. Your well cannot be empty. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of doing nothing to fill it up.

Screeching Halt. Shifting Gears.

Confession time. I’ve been putting myself last on the priority list again. I’ve been getting used to my new schedule and kicking ass at work, spending more time with the kids, being very productive.

Grateful Heart

I’ve been posting less because I’ve been absorbing more. But I will be writing and creating more vlogs in the coming weeks now that I’ve arranged my schedule to free up some of my time.

Tonight I just wanted to share how grateful I am lately. I’ve truly been able to see with a clear heart how blessed I am. No matter what uncertainties life is throwing at me right now, there is still so much to be grateful for. And a grateful heart is a much healthier heart, not just in spirit, but literally and physically. 

All of you have at least 3 things to be grateful for. Try your best to let that gratitude take over your heart. With each heart beat, that grateful energy will improve your heart chakra. Any improvement in energy will help you, even during hard times.

Sleep well everyone. Sweet dreams, and peace. 

Now I’m Craving Potato Pancakes!

Potato pancakes are kind of a big deal in many homes, and everyone has their own method. There’s a lot of speculation as to what goes into making a good pancake, and my guess is that’s because it’s easy to mess up such a seemingly simple dish. Too many eggs and your pancakes are rubbery; […]
