I am back from Blogher 2014!
The conference exceeded my expectations!
I am still processing what I learned
not only at the conference per say
what I learned from the experiences
on what I call
of the conference.
Next week I will be doing a recap
of my favorite parts of Blogher 2014
as well as a post on
Conference Self Care.
I have realized attending conferences
even traveling alone
investment in self care
is an investment in
getting the most from any trip!
I have also been to enough conferences and solo trips now to know
to schedule two days down time upon my return.
Time to decompress
reengage with family and my home.
When I get back from a trip
nothing grounds me like getting my house in order
Cleaning and gardening
end up to be perfect opportunities
to process what I have learned
time to let the emotion slide off the events
a clearer picture
of what I want to incorporate
into not only my blog
but my life as well.
I was quite impressed with the beauty of San Jose
the host city of the conference.
I took the opportunity to
walk most of the downtown area
was most impressed with the amount of art in the area.
My packing system served me very well!
I had made a list of all the activities
styled an outfit for each occasion.
This investment in time
enabled me to enter each new event with confidence
giving me again
an opportunity to put my best face forward!
It was a beautiful morning walk
from the hotel to the conference
The more I walk
the better I always feel!
On the mornings time permitted
I treated myself to a healthy in room breakfast.
I put much intent into
any healthy choice I could make
in order to
get the very most from the trip ...
like happy moments reconnecting
with old friends …
the ability to take full advantage
of connecting with new kindred spirits!
By investing in my system of
Conference Self Care
I was able to seek out
so many fabulous
new ideas and vendors
as well as luxuriating in time spent with
so many fabulous women who made up the conference!
I consider my trip
a great success!
It was not without challenges
but just like anything in life
the more we do something with
the intent to learn
the better we get at it!
Next week I will be sharing not only my
Conference Self Care ideas
Blogher 2014 Highlight Reel
Until then ….
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
