Yesterday was the first day of the year and the first full, super-moon of 2018! What an incredible view we had here on the Central Coast of California. Slightly shaded by clouds, bursting with glow.
As the new year begins, people often start new resolutions, set new goals and promise to “do better.” In the midst of doing this we often push our selfs too far, too fast, too soon. While giving yourself goals and planning a better future for yourself is healthy and beneficial, remember to take a few minutes each day for your own self care and love. Take a bath once a month, find a relaxing place to lay in the sun (or the moon!) Remember to stop, slow down, breath, relax and love yourself.
You cannot achieve your goals without believing in yourself. You are worth the love.
On another note:
Yesterday was also my very first Full Moon Self Care Group (FMSC). We met on the beach with, I had a fire going in the center and we practiced the art of grounding, worked pressure points and stretched, we took breaths in rhythm with the waves and we danced and howled at the moon. All in all, I thought it was an amazing beginning to the new year and the beginning of a wonderful group get-together.
