Weekend Wisdom: Remove something that isn’t serving you from your junk drawer, your to-do list and your thoughts.
You might think this isn’t the best weekend to share favorites but I think it’s a great time. Some of you won’t read it now but that’s ok. It’s not time sensitive. You can come back anytime to this one or any of the Weekend Favorites. More importantly, some of you are home due to weather or illness. For some, this is an ordinary weekend. Tens of thousands of you from all over the world read this newsletter and we aren’t all experiencing the weekend the same way. For some the holidays are magical and for others, miserable (or somewhere in between). So please, enjoy the Weekend Favorites whenever you’d like (even if it’s not a weekend). Wishing each of you a beautiful holiday/weekend/sunrise/cup of tea or whatever you are celebrating in your life. And if you are home due to weather or illness or another unforeseen circumstance, let me send you extra peace, ease and love.
