Must See Northern CA (Pics & Video)

I couldn’t wait to share this post with you!! This past weekend I was in Santa Rosa, California for a work-turned-vacation trip. I posted some pictures of the trip on Facebook. Did you see them? No worries either way, I included a few pictures in this email. If you haven’t had a chance to visit Santa Rosa, I am here to report back that it was (in my singing voice) amazing and you should totally add it to your bucket list.

I had this crazy moment of remembrance while I was there. I remembered “that” moment when I became aware of “old man aging”. I was super conscious that he would have his way with me no matter what. If I wanted to hold on to the best parts of me then taking care of myself in every way had to be a priority. I decided a while ago that I “needed” and “would” take care of my mind, my body, my work, my relationships, my happiness and my life! Have you had that experience? Have you gotten to that place yet? It totally shifts your outlook, right?

I was only in Santa Rosa for a weekend but boy what an awesome self-care opportunity. Check it out; I captured some playful moments in the Redwood forest.

Gosh, it is so easy for us to see our own flaws and have zero motivation to do anything about it. Or better yet, see it, work on it sporadically and feel disappointment year after year that we are still stuck in the same rut, looking and feeling the same.

As your coach I am here to tell you that this year can be the year of “better”. This year can be way better than last year and the year before that. You only need the right self care jump start.

In the words of my client-friend Amy, we all need to start taking care of ourselves like it’s our job…. free of hesitation and guilt.
