Summer ’16

July 7, 2016

I am thrilled that it is finally summer. I love everything about the summer. The abundant sunshine, the longer days. The warm weather and unexpected rains.

And that feeling of extra cold air conditioning when you come in from outside.

In the summer amazing things feel possible. It feels like there is excitement waiting around each corner.

Ordinary daily activities that can be annoying are less of a drag in the summer.

In the summer I like to take it easy as much as possible. If I am not hanging out with my husband or other family and friends, I just want to read books in the sun.

But this summer I am going to take advantage of my natural positive energy and in addition to enjoying the summer as much as possible, I will use this time reflect on the intentions I set at the beginning of the year.

There are 177 more days in 2016, and I think now would be a good time to check in with myself and make changes where I need to.

How about you?

Are you enjoying the summer, or are you counting down the days until Autumn?

Let me know in the comments!

Love, Shuba

Getting my lifestyle in order

The other day I realized that I needed to get my lifestyle in order. I had been feeling out of sorts and blaming all external events. The holidays, Monday, commuting. Nothing escaped my scorn and ire. But one morning I noticed that I had hit the snooze button for two...
