Your Summer of Choice

It has been fascinating to see the various ways we each are choosing to live right now.

Have you gotten kinda quiet, like me?  Or are you gettin’ out there and livin’ it up? 

Are you someone who has unplugged from social media or are you online more than ever? 

Have you decided to slowly reintroduce into society or are you dining out & traveling as much as possible? 

Pre-pandemic I always had multiple high-caliber goals I was striving toward: program development and training, competitive rowing, etc.  

But if you follow me on social media you’ve seen that I am focusing on family: swimming and being in nature with my 11 month old.  

I’ve recently remembered that I really, REALLY like to simply “hang out.” 

Are you someone who, like me, is not operating at your maximum potential right now?  How do you like it? 

I hope you are reminded this summer that happiness can be achieved through simple connection, down time, and honoring who you are deep inside.  

I know this isn’t my usual “brand” writing (if you need tips to stop sibling rivalry go here) but it is on-point.  

There will be time for other stuff later if you choose.  Or maybe you’ve found a new way of being connected in life. 

Either way, I wanted to pop in and let you know I’m thinking of you; wondering about how you’re choosing to be/do life these days.

With love,

P.S. I find that spaciousness in life tends to spur creativity.  This Fall, I am looking for two local elementary schools or therapy clinics who are interested in us teaching the Mad to Glad Blueprint group on-site with 10 of your families.  Our group curriculum has been in beta for two years -- with excellent results -- and we’re looking to collect data.  Hit “reply” if you’re interested in hosting us and we’ll set up a meeting to chat further.
