I am re-reading The Soulmate Secret (by Arielle Ford) which I first read when I was on my wonderful cruise... so that in itself brings me back to some happy memories...
The book is a great one and what I am picking up on immediately and reminding myself of is that I have to Love Myself fully and wholly first... before I can let true love into my life in the form of a soulmate.
In doing the quiz - I do believe that there is a perfect match for me out there, and while I don't know when or how it will happen I have faith it will.
In the mean time - I'm going to shift my focus back on simply enjoying my life fully and completely as I am in the NOW!
I have made the decision NOT to travel during my week off. I am even debating about offering up my volunteer services to help out for Canada Day at Parliament (for the hopes of getting a glimpse of the action)... but I'm not a huge fan of large crowds and I think my theme for my week's vacation will be RELAXATION and REJUVENATION!!
Here's what I plan on doing...
1. Take my daily walks weather permitting.
2. Put some air in my tires and try my bike out - for the first time (after saying I'd do it for so long).
3. Maybe go to the beach to sit, relax, read and soak in some rays.
4. Book myself a pedicure (something I've never had).
5. Go do something touristy by visiting somewhere I have not yet visited in our city.
The staycation will permit me to stay grounded and balanced. I'm going to do some catching up on reading as well... I have a few books that are partly read and plan on getting back into the groove of my reading.
I also am going to work on eating clean that entire week! I'm going to pick up Tosca Reno's book this Friday and that's the first thing I'll read in preparation for my week's vacation ... which I'm going to take as my week of self-care and LOVING ME!!
In a week from today - the girls will be done school and as of next Sunday at about 6:30am - I will be on my own for 6 whole weeks of ME time!!
I will miss my girls of course, but they will be having fun visiting and travelling... spending time with their father as they only see him once a year...
So all in all - the summer is shaping up to be an excellent one!!
