Go ahead and fill that cup
It can be so easy to get caught up in the day to day. As a busy mom of three small children I have been "busy" for a while now... Throw in a global pandemic, flip the world topsy turvy, add in homeschooling, running my businesses from home, taking care of the home, making time for my hubby, family...... my cup can empty pretty damn quick.
At first it felt rushed, because I wanted to get my workout done and get the kids dropped off and my in-laws before I drove out to the farm (yes I worked out before yoga, I am following a program and wanted to stick to it). But when I got there and saw the women who organized the event smiling faces, I was like I need this. We got to stay in our pod and the organizers were great with following all current covid safety measures.
We started with a tour and history of the farm and property. My group started off with floral design and each left with our very own hand designed arrangement. We were fed the most scrumptious pumpkin scones, topped with edible flowers and finished our day off with a yoga session in a sun soaked field. We had so much fun, definitely something I would do again.
So what it comes down to is, the lists will always grow longer, but YOU CANNOT POUR FROM AN EMPTY CUP!
It is something I preach, but I haven't been great at following. I decided a few months back that it had to change. One thing I do for myself daily is workout, my mood, focus, clarity, strength etc is soooooo much better. It is a great way to start my day. And I am happily spending those 30-40 minutes a day on me.
