#1 Smarties are better than poker chips or pennies.
How are we supposed to balance our lives when there are so many different things that need our attention? Balancing does not mean we give everything equal attention, but instead that we give the adequate amount of attention to the things that need it, and the things that keep us growing. It also helps if you consider how you balance your life using a sweet treat. Even if you feel like your life is unbalanced, you still get to enjoy the candy. Smarties or not, we take time in Journey to the Table to look at all the different parts of our life, and see how we’re doing in the balancing act.
#2 Self-care is a must.
Rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, sabbath, respite… whatever word you use for it, you’re going to need time that is set aside for you to do the things that give you life and help you be ready for everything else. It may be a kayak on a beautiful lake, a good book, a blank canvas, or a cup of coffee with a friend, or anything else you find that gives you motivation, clarity, and energy. We want to talk about self-care in Journey to the Table. More importantly, we want to give you some time for self-care in case you haven’t had any lately.
