Lists and lemon bars

Leave a comment


Anyone who knows me, knows I mean well and have great intentions but I rarely finish what I start. Which is why I have half finished projects, piles of stuff, half thought up blog posts, and an extremely disorganized life. So lists. Such helpful tools that I know and love and used to use and well, I stopped, or forgot, whatever the reason I’m bringing them back. I have so many balls in the air and I’m a horrible juggler so I’m hoping this will not only give me clarity but help me to slow it down enough to prioritize and get more accomplished without being a crazy person. I was lucky enough to take one of my favorite yoga teachers class this week, lucky because of time restrictions, pregnancy restrictions and well, just because I felt lucky. Our intention was our own and my god, to have time to breathe and me in my body without judgements was amazing, I felt completely renewed but also annoyed with myself that I have all of these tools, breath, yoga, reiki, meditation, and I’m not using them. I teach people to be calm all day long and I’m a nervous wreck. I get frustrated with my kids, the animals, and myself all the time, and while there’s nothing wrong with that, it’s not only happening way too often but I’m unpacking and setting up camp in the land of angry and frustrated and that’s not doing anyone a bit of good. So I made a self care list. Things that make me feel better, grounded, calm:

1.Blog (write more)

2.Meal Planning

3.Smile more

4.Meditate regularly

5.Get more sleep


7.Create more

8.Go for more walks

9.Take more baths

10.Drink more water

11.Read more

Ok, so these are pretty much no brainer feel good things, but I, in the midst of business, parenting, teaching, etc forget.It’s a gentle reminder, be good to yourself, be kind, be compassionate so you can be good, kind and compassionate to others! Speaking of which, my sweet friend is getting married tomorrow and I just pulled the lemon bars for her wedding out of the oven, had I made a list they would’ve been done yesterday…..
