Lately, I’ve been feeling called to make a plan. To get out magazines, and glue sticks, glitter, inspirational quotes, and wishes. To rally some friends to come and create a vision for our Summer. To jam to some fantastic tunes, maybe do some yoga, drink some mid-range wine and eat goat cheese and fig jam on gluten-free crackers.
I’m hosting a Summer Vision Board Session, Wild, and Precious.
As I write this it is Memorial Day weekend, the last longer lazier weekend before the official beginning of summer. If you are a parent, your kids will soon be home from school, hanging around the hoop, looking for rides to meet friends, cash for a double scoop, and suggestions for what to do when boredom strikes, and you’ve hidden the Xbox remote.
It’s the cusp of summer. Like the movie preview, it’s the quick view of the high highs and perhaps the low lows; the sizzling moments that leave you wanting to have more. It’s the call to say get ready people I’m coming for you bikini body or not.
This year I’ve decided to take matters into my hand a little more than usual. Instead of facing summer with the casual acceptance and some scattered planning. I am going to invest some time in these last few days of May and first days of June to craft a vision for my summer.
To get still and ask, what would make this the best summer ever? What feeling do I want to have as I move through my days? Do I want to start my mornings in a new “Summer way?” Do I want to linger with friends and family more often? Learn to play my Ukulele, so I can accompany myself around the campfire? See as many outdoor movies as I can? Inflate way too many tubes and mattresses to float in all kinds of cool, clean Pacific Northwest water? Drink wine in the sun listening to live music. Yes, Yes, Yes 1000 times YES!
