Summer Intentions

I woke up this morning
after allowing myself
the deliciousness of sleeping in
thinking that

I need to be making my 
Summer Special.

And by special
I mean
More Magical.

The magic that I felt as a young girl.

My favorite summers ever 
were filled with slow days
tons of books
creative projects done outside
long sunset walks
followed by ice cream cones with my family.

Everyday felt exciting with possibility
of what could be.

And what was.

So much of it  was the luxury of time
the new places and ideas that came from 
the books I devoured.

Because I woke up with the idea 
Making My Summer More Magical

I allowed myself the time to
not only read 
but savor

blog today.

It wasn't just her post about 
it was all of it.

Her thought provoking writings
her tales of her daily in NYC
reminded me how much 
I use to love to 

To learn new things
just for fun.

When my kids were little
I prided myself
on making their summers special.

Always striving for that balance of 
slow days 
new outings.

I was 
with our 
Summer Days.

That is what I have lost sight of
Summer Intention.

For me it's about giving myself permission
not to push so hard 
'To Get Things Done.

Too much of
My Self Worth
comes form getting 'things' done.

But the 
are beginning to feel like 
a hamster wheel of 
mundane productivity.

My new idea of
Summer Intentions
for myself
isn't about big changes at all.

More about 
giving myself permission
to do less
appreciate  more
all the small wonders of summer.

So much of what I'm trying to say 
I am realizing 
is to simply
 Appreciate this Season.

Both literally and figuratively.

To slow down enough
to be presents
in the magical moments
that make up my life.

it's as simple as 

just letting  myself
Be Happy.

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
