    244. How I'm Planning For Summer //Best Summer Ever // Selfish Summer

    My 5 Step System for the Best Summer Ever
    1) What's the feeling I want to remember from this summer?
    2) What would a month of that feeling include?
    3) What would a week of that feeling need?
    4) What needs to be in my daily plans?
    5) What about my morning and evening?

    Breathe With Me #72- Let's Practice the "Stop & Stare"

    Breathe With Me #72- Let's Practice the "Stop & Stare"

    A tiny practice where we notice our breath. 
      Leisure by W.H. Davies WHAT is this life if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare?—
    No time to stand beneath the boughs,
    And stare as long as sheep and cows:
    No time to see, when woods we pass,
    Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:
    No time to see, in broad daylight,
    Streams full of stars, like skies at night:
    No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
    And watch her feet, how they can dance:
    No time to wait till her mouth can
    Enrich that smile her eyes began?
    A poor life this if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare.

Motherhood Game-Changer

This review is looooong overdue. I found this podcast by happen-stance about 2 years ago, and I have been listening weekly ever since! Christy Thomas’ soft, calm voice infused grace & love into my soul at a time when I was nearly neck deep in postpartum depression. I always look forward to her practical, sensible, fun, and sometimes silly topics. When you listen to this podcast, it becomes a way of life-a definite motherhood game-changer.
