Today marks the first day of Sun-day Designs, the new format for this blog designed to help you declare and draw in light, love, and leadership into your coming week. Each Sunday I'll share a bit of coaching that will feel like the sunshine in your life - bringing warmth, a smile, and serving as a source of energy while shining a light on areas in your life where you can use some encouragement and support.
This day is also Easter Sunday, a day a great celebration for Christians and really people all around the world. Regardless of your religious beliefs and background this day of resurrection is a lesson we can all consider within our own lives. What areas of your life can use some attention? What areas have you ignored or lost track of because you were so focused on other things. For me, I've been so focused on my work life, building my coaching practice, and raising my son that my self-care practices had pretty much dissipated. Worst of all, I know better. I know the impact of NOT meditating, not exercising, not getting enough sleep. I become physically fatigued, mentally exhausted, and emotionally unavailable to the people I love most. Yet I still chose to prioritize other activities as more important. And maybe for some time those things were in fact a higher priority but there come a time to reevaluate that list.
What dream of yours feels like it's fading away? Is it your financial savings plan? Because of course there are too many bills to pay right now. While that may in fact be true, you can always stash away even a dollar a day. Maybe it's calling a friend you haven't connected with in years because you feel bad about your last conversation. Again that may be true. Ultimately if you choose to be a leader in your life that sometimes means taking a risk, and what better step to take than reaching out to convey your desire for connection. The effort is always worth it even to release yourself from feeing bad.
The Sun-day Design for this week is to revive the dream you want to give more time and attention to. Go back to your vision board, your resolutions, or goals of the year and take a hard look at what yo've intended for your year. What pictures or words feel like a kick in the gut or an ache in the heart because its feels neglected. Identify the elements of those dreams you want to change or areas for which you'd like to shift your energy. Simply choose one thing you will do to revitalize that dream this week. For one day, one hour, one moment, breathe life into that space.
