We just returned from a wonderful family vacation in Destin, Florida (thanks mom!).  I can still hear the ocean waves and feel the soft sand between my toes.  This trip was really restorative and it reminded me that even as I continue practicing letting go and slowing down – I still do too much!  So I’m really embracing the energy of summer by making big shifts.  I heard the term “over-responsible” the other day and I thought…ah…that’s what I do.  Without thinking twice, I’ll take on more and overextend because I’ve trained myself to be “over-responsible.”  The great thing about going on vacation is it throws you off your daily routine and helps you see things in a new way.  I loved having less to do and I could see when I returned home I had two choices….to hop right back into my “old ways” or choose a new way.

This new way, the going-with-the-flow-letting-go-of-perfect-making-more-messes-and-doing-less way, is feeling really, really nice.  And I can see how it’s changing my life.
