Stories I loved this week.
I am so thankful to have the next two days to rest, relax, exercise and spent time with my guys. It’s been a hectic few weeks with two weekends in a row of all day lectures, on top of settling into a new contract.
No complaints though – I signed up for this. My meditation right now is, “enjoy the process”. Sometimes, we’re so quick to want to get to the end, that we forget to enjoy all the stuff that comes in between.
So that’s me right now. Enjoying the process of becoming a naturopath, enjoying the evolution of mothering a baby to now mothering a rapidly growing little boy and enjoying the growth of my marriage.
