One good thing at a time.

🙏One good thing at a time.
.
This is what sustainable change and growth looks like.
.
one good thing at a time.
.
one itty bitty, insignificant feeling step forward.
.
one day…
.
one moment…
.
one breath at a time.
.
We see you. ✊️
.
👉It’s November 1. There’s snow on the ground and the almost surreal messy residue of costumes and candy strewn around as you feel the reality of the holiday season looming.
.
Before you begin to make the plans and say yes to the party invites and commit to the potlucks and start to strategize deals, gifts, and how the heck to get it all wrapped and done in the nick of time, we invite you to consider this.
.
Add one good thing for you into the mix.
.
Put it on your calendar.
.
Like…literally schedule it.
.
Do the logistical gymnastics or make the ask to make it possible.
.
And just pick that one class you’ve been meaning to make it to.
.
The one your belly is longing for and your schedule keeps saying “maybe someday” to.
.
Pick that one. Schedule that one. Put it down in pen in your planner.🙌
.
And maybe schedule it all the way through into January.
.
Who knows, maybe it becomes your weekly go-to, non-negotiable, ride-or-die relaxation and recovery class that brings you back to life through the holiday season and beyond.
.
That’s what adding one good thing into your life can do:
.
Fill your cup.
.
Nourish your energy stores.
.
Bring you back to life.
.
Why not begin today?
.
It is, afterall, November 1st.🤷‍♀️
.
The perfect day to start where you are, come as you are, and decide that you will, in fact, make room for YOU in your one wild and precious life.🙌
.
Try adding one good thing today.
.
Your future self will thank you. 🙏

What if….

Many of us make New Year’s resolutions, or know folks who do, for the purpose of improving themselves or learning a new skill.  And as we know, read, or learn via others, most of those resolutions are discarded well before the end of January. Many times the effort is too great, life gets in the way, we get distracted by others, or we simply don’t have time.

But what if you didn’t make a resolution?  Would the world end? Would the Cub or Cardinals win yet another World Series of Baseball?  Would you be shaken to your core in that you did something different?

What if….

  • You took a deep breath….. or 5
  • You complimented yourself instead of downgrading yourself when you look in the mirror
  • Turned off the radio on the way to work to be in silence
  • Turned off the TV and sat in silence at home
  • Put down the phone and listened to your partner, child, friend, coworker
  • Turned off your phone for 30 minutes
  • Journaled your thoughts, your wins or no so great moments of the day
  • Moved to simply move your body
  • Smiled instead of complain when something goes wrong
  • Nurtured your body with organic whole foods, rather than processed packaged food
  • Talked to someone in person, rather than via text or call
  • Took a walk instead of watching a show
  • Pause before responding

What if you took each day, hour, moment… and simply loved yourself?  Took care of yourself like you would your child or loved one?

What if you gave yourself the love you freely gave others?  

What if, instead of a New Year’s resolution to be greater, faster, skinnier, whatever it is….  You simply took each day, moment, instance….and loved yourself like you would a child? What if you actually did one, two, or all of those ideas above?  How would you present yourself to loved ones, friends, coworkers?

What if you gave yourself the greatest gift of presence to yourself….

Namaste and Happy New Year to our beloved Renkon Tribe!
