How are you feeling?
Even though it’s supposed to be the happiest time of the year, it’s OK if you’re not. It’s a weird time, and we’ve all been through a lot the past couple of years – and it’s not always easy to “turn on” the merriment and cheer.
While it’s important to do what you can to stay positive by practicing gratitude and looking on the bright side, it’s also important to allow yourself to feel all you’re feeling — instead of ignoring or shoving your emotions aside.
Happy November! I hope you’re enjoying the new season that’s upon us. Even here on Kauai, fall is in the air and it’s a welcomed change.
August marked one year since my pup Harper and I boarded a plane and moved to the lush, magical island of Kauai. As you may know, we had to quarantine for 14 days in our new home before we could get out and explore — which proved a rougher start than expected.
Spring is in the air and I hope this season of new beginnings is bringing a smile to your face and sparking optimism in your heart.
Here on Kauai, baby chicks are roaming the island with their protective moms, plumeria buds are bringing life back to trees, and after a month of rain the sun is showing up for us daily.
This season of positive change is blooming and I’m grateful!
First, I hope 2021 is treating you kindly and you’re feeling optimistic about what lies ahead.
If you’re not feeling all that hopeful right now, that’s OK too — you’re not alone. Last month, I took a poll on Instagram asking, “Are you feeling hopeful about 2021?” and 57% of people said ‘No’!
I was surprised by such a large percentage and it got me thinking about New Year’s and new beginnings…
The holiday season is officially here and I hope this note finds you healthy and happy!
How are you doing? Are you getting in the holiday spirit? Are you feeling a little sad or emotional this holiday season most likely won’t be what you’re used to?
Personally, I’ve been feeling a range of emotions.
First, I hope this email finds you happy and healthy. We’ve been processing more than usual and it’s important to take extra care of your mind, body, and soul by relaxing and doing less — guilt-free.
Today, I wanted to check-in and say hello, share a few things I’ve been up to and resources I hope will bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart. 🙂
There’s so much going on in the world right now, and I hope you’re happy and taking good care. 2020 has been quite a ride so far and we still have elections, holidays and three months to go!
Speaking of a lot going on, last month, I moved to Kauai with my pup Harper. We were supposed to move in March (but, well, COVID happened) and after a couple of flight cancellations and other moving complications, plus a long two-week quarantine, Harper and I are loving our new island home.
It’s hard to believe we’re halfway through 2020. What a surreal year it’s been. When the clock struck midnight kicking off the New Year, I don’t think any of us could’ve predicted where 2020 would take us.
Chances are this year hasn’t gone the way you expected it would either, so today, I want to share with you a few things I’m doing at this mid-way point to help make the rest of 2020, the best of 2020.
From stringing lights to wrapping gifts, our to-do lists run long this time of year and it’s important we remember to enjoy the magic, good tidings and cheer this season is truly about.
Sing out loud, throw snowballs, kiss under the mistletoe and let yourself get swept up in the excitement and joy surrounding the holidays.
