Wise Future Self


It’s go-time for me.  Each year in the fall, I have a massive burst of creative energy and spend 3 months go-go-going.  3 weeks ago, I led a retreat in New Mexico for my Freedom Mastermind, last weekend I co-led the LIVE FREE retreat in Sonoma, and just yesterday I was doing a video shoot for my upcoming 2014 Freedom Mastermind launch, which comes after a trip to NYC and a 2 week trip to Peru. Phew! A lot of women I’ve spoken with recently have a lot going on, too.

So when I began packing my bags for a relaxing weekend in chilly Utah, I started to feel into the delightful feeling of cozy…

Cozy is one of my favorite feelings.

Cozy happens when we slow time down…when we drop into the gorgeous stillness of a moment; when we allow our surroundings to soothe us; when we delight in creature comforts; when we create an environment to please; when we just let go.

Amidst all our crazy we need more cozy, wouldn’t you agree? {tweet it}
