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.
