Fall Sessions are Over- Hello Winter!


This past week was challenging.  Many clients, friends and family expressed this common feeling. We know that things will escalate as we get closer to the Holidays.  It is dark, it is busy, we are tired…..BUT…..

I’ve decided to face the end of November with the upmost POSITIVE attitude and sense of excitement.  This will be challenging as there are struggles to fit everything in and still be good at what we do!

You know what?  There are many things to be excited about, and here is how I will try my best to be POSITIVELY EXCITED
(by all means please borrow and share if it works for you):

1.  A no brainer- I will be more positive- A positive attitude brings gratitude
2.  I will be more appreciative of amazingness around me.  I am excited to host Appreciation party-I very much appreciate all my wonderful clients, volunteers and colleagues. Tis the season of giving!
3.  I will stay on track- keep moving forward and start each day new.  I will not take yesterdays challenges forward.
4. Watch Elf (as per my son’s recommendations)
5.  Be mindful of my time and who I spend it with
6.  Always end the day with a positive thought- I will overcome negative emotions and remember that change leads to growth!
7. I am in control and know my self worth.  If things do not validate my worth, I will not give them access to my life.
8.  I WILL get SLEEP
9.  Complaining is draining (thanks Kim O for that one).  I will be mindful and try to decrease the amount I complain about troubles and find peace knowing that I am thankful for the troubles I do not have.
10.  It’s Not an Event- It’s My Life

Fall Schedule coming soon!

Hope you are having fun and enjoying the summer days. We have been super lucky this summer. Even though the weather has been a little fickle this summer, we have been able to have every class outside (yes maybe I just jinxed it).

After this week we will be taking a little break to DO NOTHING! Then we will be preparing for a full fall schedule.

See a glimpse below:

Enjoy the days. Take those moments and soak in the sounds of summer. Keep it balanced. It’s a LONG journey.

Enjoy the rest of August.
