Ahhh weekends!! How lucky we are to have them. I know I really need the chance to stop up and smell the roses. I need to do some of the things I love to do so that I will have the energy I need to face new adventures the following week.
I need to slow down on the weekends and find my inner balance. The key to genuine confidence is knowing who you are, and that whatever happens in your day you can handle it. You have the ability to master any moment. When you take time to get in touch with your feelings and your needs nothing can throw you off balance. You will always land on your feet, whether it’s new challenges at work, at home, or simply surviving the line at the grocery of traffic jam on the way to work. Mastering your inner calm means living in the moment and using all your senses to experience what you are doing today.
This weekend embracing myself and my life meant spending time with my family and people I care about. Meeting my friends for a cup of coffee, girl talk, and some makeup experimenting was one way I relaxed this weekend. Playing cards with our neighbours is another. Sunday afternoon I took a walk on the beach with my husband, RennyBA, and then returned home for a contemporary art painting session with a little friend. Taking up the brushes and mixing the colors I feel a true serenity within my soul.

In this way I have taken responsibility for my own needs, socially, emotionally and artistically. I have taken the time to charge up my batteries to meet new opportunities in the week ahead. This leaves me feeling flexible and willing to try new things, creative and able to find original solutions, and more open to love because I am open to life.
How are you charging your batteries?? Are you fully charged and ready to go, or are you running on empty? How can we find new ways to live in the moment?
