It took some time to get here but I made it. What a HUGE difference this month in keeping to my intentions. Shows us that sometimes we really do hit low points but that’s when we bounce back up!
And boy did I ever. Missing out on my June intentions pushed me to try just that little bit harder on my July intentions.
I was able to follow through with most of my intentions, especially with meditating! I’ve been meditating every day now for 3-6 minutes. I also made a pretty big decision this month and I am excited to share with you guys my August intentions and my new coming adventure!
Last month, I was a mess.
It was a stressful month with new beginnings and some unexpected life curves that well were unexpected.
Maybe it was the late Spring that threw me off schedule but June came out of nowhere and I found myself just overwhelmed.
So overwhelmed that I kinda neglected to write my June intentions down. I don't know why but in June, writing out my intentions felt more like expectations. It felt like work and I was like F&*% it.
Yup, I lost it a little and I am sorry about that. Really! I feel bad I let some of you guys down.
You know we aren’t all perfect. We all have those days, those months where we are just not about it.
But what if I was (more) of a mess because I didn’t feel grounded, because I didn’t have my intentions to keep me on track?
I realized then the importance of taking some time to self care and reflect on your life. Whether you do that daily, weekly, or monthly, I realized it’s an important thing to do.
This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of being invited to a Macaron Tasting Event where I got to indulge in some savoury French macarons at the Marylebone Cafe in Oakville.
I know what you must be thinking, you mean that macarons don't have to be sweet but can be savoury too?!
Yup, and it's a complete different ball game. So for your next wine and cheese night, forget the cheese and get some of these macarons!
You'll make a very impressive host, trust me.
It’s snowing, like full on snowing in the middle of April! Mother Nature has lost it.
Or have we?
This kind of thing doesn’t just happen. There’s a reason behind the strange weather we have been experiencing. Over the years, we have been damaging our earth.
And now we are paying the price for our ignorance and frankly our inaction to correct our bad ways.
There shouldn’t be snow in April there should be rain! There’s a reason there’s the saying, “April Showers bring May flowers.”
Every year, we stand by and see the effects that global warming has on our world. When are we going to say enough?
Well I am saying enough. I can’t speak for everyone else but I at least want to try to make a change for the better.
That’s why for this Earth Day, I am joining Earth Day Network’s movement to #EndPlasticPollution and you should too!
Let’s enter this farmer’s market season with a new mindset and lets support not only local farmers and producers but our earth as well!
