Patience

If you listened to our last episode you probably heard all about the new series we’ll be doing in the blog and podcast. I’ve informally called it the “word” series, from a total lack of imagination on my part, but it’s because I think so much can come with the words that will serve as inspiration for this series of posts and episodes. Just in case you don’t have the slightest idea of what I’m talking about, during our little winter break, which thanks to my vocal cords and never ending cold became a very long winter break, I had a lot of realizations you can hear all about here. It started with some eye opening insights about excess, which will be one of our upcoming episodes, but from there came an avalanche of other creative spurts, all stemming from little words. These powerful little words we use so often without a second thought. Some that define certain aspects of our lives which we might be trying to change, some that can inspire and create great spaces within ourselves, some that can serve as little mantras or guiding lights.

Today’s word as the title suggests is patience. This little one has accompanied me since the start of the year. I told you last week all about the big changes that took place in my life at the beginning of this year, and with it the string of colds, the cough that would never end, the voice that refused to come out when I wanted it to.

When Life Gives you Lemons: Ramblings on Self Care and Opening Up Time for it + A HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT!

Today we’re having a little informal conversation in the podcast as a kind of follow up to our Overwhelm City episode in which we discussed self care, the stages in which it leaves us when we’re under stress, and how to bring it back. Today I’m sharing a very big lesson that came to me in the most unexpected situation.

So often we’re under stress and feeling overwhelmed and we know that something’s got to give. We know we need to rest, we know we need to slow down, we know we need a high dose of self care as soon as possible, but we just can’t find the time for it.

Last week something happened to me that forced me to stop on my tracks (almost literally), and find the solution, space and time I had been waiting for.

In the episode I also share a pretty big announcement, something that has us so excited we can hardly stand it!

The Art of Slowing Down and Why I Fail at this Miserably!

Oh boy, very few weeks of my life have been as intense as this past one, you probably already know why if you've read our last post about the HUGE surprise we had for all of our members and our email subscribers (members, remember to check your email for those special instructions on how to make the move to the new My Brownble platform!), AND so much more is coming! We have a big surprise coming soon for all of you that I'm very excited about, and we have another surprise starting today! You probably already saw it as soon as you clicked on this post, and it's the fact that you can now listen to our blog posts on the go! That's right! You can either read it as usual or listen to the audio recording of it (with my sweet mouse-like voice as my hubby likes to call it!). You can either stream the audio right above here with the audio player, or you can download it, save it on your phone and listen while you're on a long commute, at the gym, walking the dogs or doing laundry! Let me know if you like this new feature! We're starting today but we're backtracking and soon you'll have it in all of our major blog posts. 

All of these super cool new things that have been going on around here meant I was a busy bee all week and needed some serious R&R this weekend.

Here's the problem when you do something you love, and especially when it's online based (a.k.a. your office is everywhere). IT'S SO HARD TO STOP!
