When was the last time you walked the beach alone?
When was the last time that you prioritised time for you to breathe deeper again?
As Women, as Mothers and as Creatives we spend so much time giving out to others, we spend so much time in spaces where we are in charge, responsible and giving our attention to everyone else’s needs.
I am learning that if I don’t prioritise time for me, time to reflect, time to escape, time to renew then everyone around me suffers.
I have spent many times in my life in near burnout. I am an empath to the extreme. When I walk into a room, I really feel what is happening in the whole room. When I sit and listen to someone’s story, it is like I am carrying their experience. When I say yes to doing something, I am extreme in my commitment to its execution. I am loyal, I am constant in my pursuit of contribution and I feel so damn big.
All of these things are the reason why I need to get away. I need to prioritise time with people who feel like I feel and are looking to live a life of purpose.
It is difficult for me to prioritise money and time to make this happen annually. It is difficult to arrange babysitters for my kids and say yes, knowing that my life shifts and changes so often.
But honestly, if I don’t no one else will.
We launched our inspire creative retreat today and I wanted to invite you.
The exhausted, the confused, the strung out and the somewhere in-between.
I wanted to extend my invite to those who sometimes don’t fit it, to the ones who feel forgotten and the ones who cannot see beyond their washing piles.
To the successful, to the writer, the painter, the singer and the musician. To the one who feels unable, to the one who is sick of being overlooked, to the one who has been silenced and the one whose been told they are redundant.
To those who feel too old, to those who feel too big, too loud and those who feel too much.
Click on this link and have a read of the weekend we have prepared.

Ok this part:

Got me shedding tears, all hot and heart thumping.
That is me… I’m all or nothing. Lately I have felt like I see hear and want to attend to everything- the responsibility (that I put on myself) feels huge so I run…and then run back.
Anyway- thank you for the confirmation to create more margin for me. When I walk I write and when I write I have less crazy thoughts and the world (my little people and my main sqeeze) are happier.
Thank you xxx
You are so amazing lovely, and I am so glad that we found each other on here. Create margin yes yes yes.
So much love
