Once in a while I feel the urge to explore alone. I am very connected to my inner being and when it whispers, I listen. Spending time with myself enables me to learn something new about myself or at the very least, it reminds me of who I am. As a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend, I sometimes forget and lose the essence of me. Therefore, in order to stay connected, I spend time with me and enjoy the occasional adventure.
It was an afternoon well spent not only with myself, but also, with strangers I connected with through conversations around a fire pit. I encourage you to take sometime during this busy season to just relax and connect with you. And please be mindful and intentional this holiday season and include local creative small businesses in your purchases. Be inspired, be adventurous, be supportive and embrace your journey!
