As the summer of 2017 is upon us, I have a lot to reflect on. This Memorial Day weekend was spent cleaning, painting and laying tile. Blood, sweat and tears go into living the dream. The only way we can have this dream house at the beach comes with sacrifice. We rent the house out to the students of University of Rhode ISland for the academic year. Instead of getting angry about how they treat the house, I stay in gratitude for them. I know without them, we couldn’t have the house at all. I have to stay grounded to this truth as we clean up after them. My whole family work so hard the first 3 weeks of getting the house back, but then its all ours to enjoy. It’s still new to us, so we are slowly making it our own.
I plan on spending, as much time in gratitude that this is actually my life!!!! I have a few things planned already. I really want to take surf lessons (insert scared face emoji here) LOL! I plan on continuing the journey of health and fitness, as I have never felt so good. There will be lots of boot camps on the beach. I will find a yoga class to attend while I’m there too. Mostly, there will be reflection, what worked and what didn’t. Lessons learned to be able to improve when I return full time in the fall. I’ll be working a couple days a week and taking the better part of July off. There will be bonding between my 12 year old daughter (whether she likes it or not)! SOOOOOOO thankful that 7th grade is done….phew that was a dooooozyy!
Came home to a nice surprise yesterday. I am grateful to have come in second place in the Berlin Citizens Best of 2017 rewards for Best Massage. What an honor to say the least. This is a brand new business and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Came in3rd for Best Day Spa…I’ll humbly take it. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for your votes. All the hard work was worth it! Divine Soul Energy and Massage helps so many! I am grateful to the clients, healers, teachers and students that participate in sessions and workshops! Cannot wait to see what next year has to offer.
This summer another answered prayer showed up…..I asked the Universe and my business coach (GinaJohnson.CO) for help serving my cleints while I live my dream! And waaaaallllaaaaaaa in comes Lisa DiGirolamo, LMT. Lisa has focused her bodywork style to be a deep, therapeutic blend of Eastern and Western techniques. Most recently, Lisa decided to study holistic health at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Her website is anandawellness.co. You may contact Lisa directly for appointments. She will be sharing space at Divine Soul on Saturdays and possibly Tuesday evenings.
I pray that all of you have a blessed summer. Go out and live!!! I would not be where I am at if I hadn’t learned to trust and just be! I absolutely live by the motto, LET GO AND LET GOD!!!!! I am sitting back and enjoying the ride. Let go of the straps, don’t hold so tightly…..just let go! See you at the shore!!
Toes in the water and ass in the sand….the only way to be!
