  I have friends, family members, and clients with strong personalities who can feel like themselves no matter who they are with. They probably don’t need this getaway as much as I do. Maybe it’s having high empathy, my life coach training, or just being a Mom, but I find it really hard to stay fully connected to myself when I’m around other people. Tuning out my kids I find nearly impossible. Walking through my house without seeing it as a giant to-do list is really hard. If this sounds like you, try giving yourself a weekend away, by yourself. At first it was really hard. I started with a day at a spa. I felt guilty spending the money and leaving my husband with the kids. After 12 hours (I can milk a day at the spa) I felt so much better, so much more like myself, I knew it was the best gift I could ever give my family.  A year later, I expanded it to an overnight in  a hotel alone. It was so fabulous, I KNEW I needed to do it again for two nights. I bring work projects so I can call it a write off. You might scrapbook, write Christmas cards, read and watch movies, whatever your heart desires. I spend lots of time walking in nature. You might get the same feeling from house sitting, traveling with a girlfriend, attending a retreat, I can even get the same feeling from babysitting other people’s children at night! My intention for this post is to give you permission to do whatever sounds delicious and delightful to you! xo   Here’s a picture I took yesterday on my walk through a redwood grove. img_2740
