After being completely “on” for four days, networking, and presenting at a national conference, I intentionally reserved this weekend for recharging, some major alone time, and filling my cup with happiness and positive energy.
:: I wore my coziest pajamas until noon.
:: I went on three short runs exploring my new neighborhood.
:: I made kale salad with quinoa and black beans.
:: I had an rejuvenating coaching call with an old friend that left me feeling inspired and energized.
:: I watched Father of the Bride. 1 and 2.
:: I ate pumpkin ice cream for dessert and didn’t feel the least bit guilty.
:: I began planning, dreaming, and scheming what I want this space to become over the next year.
:: I drank hot apple cider and brainstormed new creative ideas with my favorite journal and pen.
:: I read Daring Greatly by Brene Brown.
:: And I went to bed by 10pm.
I’m an introvert who needs some serious time alone after spending days surrounded by people. I need time to sort through my thoughts, let my mind rest, and filter through the conversations that occurred. It’s not that I don’t enjoy spending time with people, because I do. It’s just that I leave feeling exhausted. So, this weekend I went into my metaphorical cave of relaxation and recharging.
