This weekend I attended Type-A Mom Conference with countless other blogging businesswomen. The energy was palpable. The conference hallways were filled with women bloggers who looked at new ways of taking their blog to a new level including discovering new monetization methods, how
to be a better writer, how to re-brand, and how to turn their blog into a business, among other topics. It was wonderful! I loved every moment of the time I spent in Asheville. I was thrilled to meet new bloggers and also catch up with good friends. In the midst of such positive, business-focused women was soul work in itself. I also took my soul work to another level on the way home on Sunday.
Instead of taking the quickest way home we decided to take the Blue Ridge Parkway and essentially drive on one of the most beautiful highways in all of North America. Even though it took us four hours out of the way, simply driving through so much nature and beauty was an easy way for me to get my soul right for the upcoming week. I have a heavy day of travel upcoming this week, plus tons of projects I need to be “present” for that taking in the positive vibes of the Parkway was a must!
Enmeshing myself in soul work is something I am doing on a regular basis because it helps keep me grounded especially as the holidays draw near and my travel and projects escalate sharply. I have to take time to breathe. That’s what I did today. Sometimes it’s easiest for me to remember my soul work when I travel because it has the potential of taking a lot out of me.
I have created a soul work series where I talk about ways I take time for myself to breathe and decompress from taking in nature to being mindful of my life and what I’m doing with it over a simple cup of coffee. Taking the time to think clearly no matter where you are is definitely a soul work practice. Read part one.
How do you take time for yourself?
