Today, I did a few things that were self-care (something I struggle with).
1. I took the day off from work and disconnected from email and other technology by about 20%. For me, this is pretty good considering I am a workaholic. So yes, I was off but still working remotely.
2. I made a campfire and chilled out by the pond. I enjoyed a few Saranac beers too.
3. I have been thinking about this for several months and finally decided to rededicate attention to Young Living. This is part of our farm’s holistic focus. [I've reactivated my distributor account. If you are interested in learning more, please let me know. They offer way more than in years past (essential oils, at home, healthy living, pets, and more). https://www.myyl.com/naturalhorseloverfarm ]
4. I did a guided meditation using my Gaia account. During the meditation, I saw all of my past animals. They stood on logs and floated by as if they were saying hello and showing solidarity, that there were with me, that they loved me and were there to support me. It was wonderful and made me tear up big time. It was just what I needed. [This is a service I offer at the farm. It was great to enjoy it for myself. http://www.naturalhorseloverfarm.com/holistic-healing.html ]
5. I enjoyed time with the dogs. I love them.
6. I started blogging again. My version of journaling. http://www.naturalhorseloverfarm.com/blog
7. This week I kicked butt and got to exercising above and beyond farm stuff. YEAH!
