Happy 4th of July, our nations celebration of Independence. I hope you are set to enjoy a long wonderful weekend of fun, summer vacation activities, and time with family and friends.
I was talking with a client this week about what makes summer ‘feel’ like summer. For him it was the beach, surfing, and long lazy days, maybe a couple weekend trips away with his sweetie. In short, a lot of getting outside and less responsibilities.
So this week, think back to your fun, lazy days of summer and what made it sweet to you. How could you bring some of that sweetness into your life? Some time at the beach, pool, or lake? Dinning al Fresca? Bike trips? Pool time? Lemonade? Good summer reading? What makes summer a change in the season and a change in your life?
Look at your July, August, and September and put some fun on your schedule. Maybe a few free day? Longer weekends? I know it sounds funny to say plan for your spontaneity, but in our busy work-driven lives, that will give you the best chance for freedom! Plan for it! Savor it! Make it happen!
