Most of us spend the holidays keeping busy and trying to do everything we can to bring this elusive "joy" to our homes and families.
From going to see Santa with the kids to making sure we buy the perfect gifts, commercial manipulation has forced us into a season of chaotic schedules and consumeristic rampages. It’s all about bigger trees, extravagant gifts, and fancier parties.
Conveniently, the spotlight has been taken away from what this time is really about.
I have a little announcement. I'm starting a monthly newsletter for Her Tribe this month and I'm really excited about it.
I don't know if any of you follow inspirational newsletters but I do (@cambriajoy is my favourite) and I really love it. It really uplifts me whenever I see it in my inbox and becomes my personal collection of encouraging notes I have with me all the time.
Lately there has been such a buzz about following what “moves your soul”, but there are some of us who feel like there is absolutely nothing that makes us feel that way. Does that mean we are passionless?
Have you noticed how we all tend to surround ourselves with unnecessary obligations and endless list of things we should be doing to be "better". We are constantly beaten down by running the rat race, that frankly no one can really win. All that movement in life can be so exhausting!
Sometimes all you got to do is find the stillness within yourself. Acing your unrealistic task sheet will not make you win at life. Instead of adding to that list, subtract. And instead of should-ing all over your life, let go. Once you have, forget about what you "should" do, and only focus only on those things that truly make you happy. .
