What is going on in your busy life? We all have the good and the bad. It is as they say, which wolf you feed and focus on. When we stop to really think about our values and what our heart yearns for, it can help us to live a more focused and intentional life.
What is your heart's deepest desire? Peace with oneself and those around you? Joyful moments? Strong family? Loving relationships?
As a small business owner, a woman in the healing arts, a homeschooling mother, a Girl Scout troop leader, a wife, and a friend, I fill a lot of other people's cups but it is important to carve out a bit of time doing things that really nourish me. Our goals in life may not look the same but we all have a deep desire to live our values and get what we desire out of life.
Two weekends ago my family carved the time to go backwoods camping just for a night. The kids have been trail hiking with my husband on Thursdays while I work so they were ready for a bit of a hike with packs. We pulled out our old Army gear and loaded it with what we would need for the cold night ahead. The 1.75 mile hike was good for our bodies and to quiet our minds from the busy of life without leaving us worn out. A little work to gather firewood filled our primal need for security. And after that we were able to simply relax and enjoy the sunset and the Omaha skyline from the bluffs of Hitchcock Park. It was a bit of physical effort but all in all good memories and fun!
If you need help finding your values and making time to live them, reach out. I'd be happy to help!
