sleepy girl speaks of workshops and self care

I'm tired.
But I've been neglecting this space for too long.
So a short list:

1. Last Saturday I attended a Women's retreat hosted by the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding. Very powerful stuff.
Follow and support them. They are doing great things for our community.

2. Tonight I went to a workshop called 'Curse of the Nurturer' given by Brandi Adair of The Vibrant Alternative. Lot's of great information plus new and helpful ways of simplifying life so that I can actually get down to the business of self care. Something really helpful for me to know about myself that I realized tonight- if I don't schedule it (it being exercise, meditation, making art etc.), it's just not going to happen. Brandi's next workshop, Discovering Abundance will be Tuesday, June 19 at 6 pm so there's still time to sign up.

I've dropped the ball on the whole self-care challenge, I'm well aware. I've been wondering if any of you have gone on without it anyway and made changes. If any Gainesville locals are interested in forming a small in person discussion group on how to best support each other in this either comment below or message me on facebook. I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. That JC quote is on my FB profile :) One of my mantras. I have dropped the self-care ball in many ways, too, the past few months. Namely, exercise and yoga. I'm definitely interested in getting support and lending support in this area, but I can't commit to another in-person group! I'm interested to see what ideas arise for this...

  2. of course it is, Ariel...I should have known! You and I are so in sync in so many ways- especially when it comes to quotes ; )

    What about a fb group- that way it's not just locals? Idk... I need some idea of what the goal is- like....would it be helpful to have fb group where once a week you posted your self care goal for the week and checked in to support and receive support on progress? I am just feeling like I need more than myself- a group effort of inspiration whether it's a few people or a lot.
