You may have the time, but do you have the energy?

I used to believe in the hustle - scheduling most moments of my days at work and in life, in general. Until I got sick in 2019 with my vertigo and upper cervical injury and found out that if I didn't learn to rest (a lot), I wouldn't heal completely. ⁠⁠I resisted the rest so hard!⁠⁠I eventually got past the resisting, and learned so much along the way about the time we have versus the energy we have. ⁠⁠You might have time for something that only takes 15 minutes, but is it worth it if it sucks every drop of energy out of you? OR you may spend three hours doing something - but that thing doesn't use much of your energy... it might even give you more energy. ⁠⁠Now when I plan my days, I take energy into consideration of everything I put on my schedule. I deliberately include space for resting, and I finally don't feel bad about it.⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠#ichoosebeauty #inspirationdaily #inspirationoftheday #inspirationalwords #inspirationalthoughts #inspirationalthought #inspirationalpost #inspirationalquotesandsayings #inspirationalmessage #quotesaboutlifelessons #liveinspired #wordsofencouragement #wordstoinspire #wordstoremember #wordsofthewise #wordstoliveby #wordsforthesoul #wordsthatinspire #lifequotestoliveby #lifequotesandsayings #lifequotesoftheday #lifelesson #motivationquotesoftheday #mentalwellbeing #mentalwellness  #mentalwellnessmatters ⁠

Giveaway prints to lift your spirits!

️⁣⁣

I’m doing something a little extra with #ichoosebeauty that I hope will bring you light, as many of us continue to face challenges during the pandemic. ⁣⁣

I’m giving away three of these inspirational 5×7 prints each month for the next few months, along with some twine and these cute tiny clothespins to make them easy to hang. You choose the print that speaks to you.

⁣⁣It’s simple to enter the giveaway! Just post a picture (or several) of the beauty you see in your world on Instagram, using the hashtag #ichoosebeauty, and I will do a drawing to choose the winners. Each photo is one entry. ⁣⁣

You can either post at random when you see something or commit to posting every day or once a week… whatever you want.⁣⁣

Or… if you need more guidance, you can go through the official 30-day #ichoosebeauty challenge.

I’m hoping that the practice of looking for beauty in your life will help you feel good, and that when others see your pics, it will lift their spirits, as well. ⁣⁣

And then the bonus is you might win a print along the way. 😀😀⁣⁣

Let me know if you have any questions. ⁣⁣I can’t wait to see the beauty in your life!⁣

My word for the year: Align

My word for the year: Align.⁠⁠For the last five years, I've felt kind of in between versions of myself, if that makes sense. The move to Maui tested me in ways I never imagined, but the hard work I've been doing in therapy keeps bringing me closer and closer to my true self. ⁠⁠I feel more aligned personally and in all other areas of my life than I have before. As I delve deeper this year, I'm focusing on being more intentional so that everything I'm allowing into my life feels right to my core, and aligns with my soul.⁠⁠What word did you choose for 2021? ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠#ichoosebeauty #selfkindness #align #inspiringwords #inspiringquote #inspiringthoughts #inspirationalquotestoliveby #inspirationalmessage #inspirationalsayings #inspirationalthought #healingtools #healingyourself #selflovematters #selflovetips #selflovemovement #selfloveadvocate #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthhelp #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthcare #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthcommunity #mentalwellness
