5 Minutes of Fabulous: Summer, Summer, Summertime + A Special Invite for You!
Holy crap- how is it August already? We are more than halfway through the year and nearing the end of summer.
I don't know about you, but summer reminds me of being a kid. I spent my summers swimming, laughing, reading books, eating lots of ice cream, playing board games, sleeping in, dining al fresco, and trying all types of new things.
In all honesty, when I looked at my calendar this week, I had a holy shit moment. I wondered, "How do I seize this moment and really savor the rest of this summer?"
Can you relate? Are you feeling this way too?
Just like you ,I have a demanding job and as you may imagine, working in corporate America doesn't necessarily lend itself to summer fabulousness. More often it can lead to summertime sadness when you walk out of your office building to a warm evening.
So how do we add some more summertime fabulous to our lives right now?
Carpe diem! Here a few things I plan to do to savor the rest of my summer:
1.Getting out in nature
For me, that means scheduling morning hikes on the weekend or laying out in the sun for an hour with a book.
2.Hitting the beach (this also counts as getting out in nature)
I now work near the beach AKA Silicon Beach- an area of LA were Google, Facebook, and lots of other tech companies have their offices. One night after work, I plan to pick up dinner, bring a beach blanket, and watch the sun set while taking in the ocean's waves.
3. Seeing a summer blockbuster
I plan to head out of the office early on a Friday for an afternoon movie at the local movie theater. Grabbing a popcorn, candy, and seeing a movie always makes me feel like a kid. What about you?
4. Try one new thing
Like Dance Dance Revolution (I've never done it!), listening to a new podcast, trying a new yoga class, or being extra bold and going to a trapeze class
How are you feeling about the end of summer? Can you think of a time when you had fun this summer? Are you craving more fun and spontaneity in your life? Can you think of one summertime activity that you can schedule in for this month?
If not, I would like to help with that! I am hosting a New Moon Gathering at my apartment in Los Angeles and you are cordially invited to join!
Curious what the f**k a New Moon gathering is all about?
A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle, a fresh start in it’s cycle of waxing and waning. During this time the Moon is empty and receptive and full of potential. This is an optimum time to plant seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest in your life. Most of us, live our lives so disconnected from our intuition and devoid of any kind of ritual that creates the space for us to connect. So the New Moon provides us with an opportunity to take the time to create scared space for ourselves.
I believe that there is something so powerful when women come together to support each other on our journey, in our hopes and dreams. When we share sacred space together we magnify the power of our intentions and we energetically create a web of support for not only our circle of women friends but with women everywhere.
So, are you ready to add some fun, whimsy, and fabulous to your summer? Join me on 8/21!!!
