Can you believe it’s already, July?
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely still trying to take that in because I’m not sure where June went…it seemed to fly by. We’re already into the second part of the year and officially into the summer season here in the northern hemisphere. Long slow sunny days and summer evenings are on deck for a while which is something that I look forward to every year. I’m here for all the flip flops, bike riding, and porch sitting.
Summer is a season that seems to have “slow down” woven into its fiber; allowing us to stop and take a breather so we can adjust to pace of the season.
With this new slow down upon us, this is a great time to do some reprioritizing. If June slipped by for you in the same way that it did for me, maybe you can take a little time to check in on the things that you want to focus on as we keep moving deeper into this year.
It can be easy to get a bit sidetracked during this time because travel may be in your schedule or some other big changes. While I’m all in for travel, taking a little time to reframe what you want to lean into for the rest of the year is an investment worth making. You don’t have to take a lot of time doing this, in fact you can do it while you’re sitting on your porch swing or lounging by the pool. It doesn’t matter where you take some time to restructure your goals or dreams as long as you do it.
A big theme that has been showing up a lot lately has been about leaning into joy. Joy is a very powerful emotion and an important part of our lives. One of the things that really stands out to me is that if we don’t make time for the things, people, or experiences that bring us true joy we can get slogged down with all the things that need to get done. As an adult in the modern world, you know that there will always be “one more thing” that needs to get done. No matter how organized you are, there will always be something else that can pull your attention away from you getting to the things that really fill you up and bring you genuine joy. Your joy quotient is important and only you know what things, even the little things, and often especially the little things that help to increase your joy quotient and areas of your life that need to be nurtured regularly.
As adults it can take a little extra effort to make sure that you’re receiving the level of nurturing, support, and care that you need. You’re probably very aware of the things that your loved ones need and reach out to help them in the ways you can as often as you can. However, you need that same level of care too.
What I know for sure is that Highly Sensitive People, like yourself tend to be the ones doing the helping, supporting, and caring for the people in your world. It probably feels more natural or organic for you to be the one leaning into helping rather than asking for help. However, this means that you need to plan time to care for yourself and invest in your joy quotient even more than you realize. If you don’t plan it, it won’t happen. So, you have to reprioritize them as a priority to you not just once in a blue moon but as a regular part of your day to day life.
Summertime…well, this is a fantastic time to practice this slow down and reframing for yourself and for the remainder of your year. Be honest about what you want to make of the rest of your year, including the down time and your joy quotient. Let someone in your inner circle know if you could use some help or support. Choose to make this month a time of Reframing, Restructuring, and Reprioritizing the way you want to experience your year…and your life. Your life is happening right now and you are worthy of enjoying it while you continue to move toward the goals and dreams of your heart.
Do you feel like you could use some extra support from me in pin pointing something that’s happening in your life right now? Maybe you know you need to increase some self care and want to schedule some treatments; either way I’m here to offer you some support and guidance this month; and I’m looking forward to working with you.
I’m going to be traveling a bit this summer so my schedule is a little bit tighter than usual, but there’s still lots of space for you to get in for your sessions. Xoxo
With so much love and support,
P.S. A very happy 4th of July to you and yours if you’re celebrating!
