After my fruity basket I was ready for more herbal, floral and earthy scent. I am stoked about melting those Bathing Garden scents too. Shannon has really been knocking me out with her incredible scents and throw the past few openings. If you would like any of these reviewed in depth, please let me know which ones in the comments.
We had a Red Tailed Hawk visitor last week.
I think he wanted to remind me to pause and observe more often in my life. My feet too frequently marching with swift purpose, my eyes often on my phone or next destination, the cogs of my brain rotating around to-do lists or superfluous things. He sat there waiting for me to see him, to be present.
We are going camping this weekend to swim in some springs and enjoy a last summertime adventure. I will carry my camera of course, but I will be taking more moments of rest and mindfulness. Once I head back to work I will eventually need to get back to a slower posting schedule, about 3-4 times a week, especially as I learn these new ropes.
How do you create mindful moments in your life? Do they come naturally or do you have to plan them? How is your August fleshing out? Clinging to summer or ready for fall?
