It's winter here in New Zealand and yesterday we had our shortest day and longest night. I typically hate winter because of the cold and I'd gladly drop everything and hop on a plane to experience summer in Hawai'i! This year though I've tuned into the seasons and what they teach us to do. Autumn is a time of letting go what no longer serves us. To breathe and accept what is and what isn't in our life. Winter is when we rest and spend time dreaming, cultivating ideas and enjoying self care. It's a reset for the next three seasons Spring, Summer and Autumn. I made some radical shifts to honour this time. One is that I took my daughter out of daycare (she was going three full days a week) to be at home so we can sleep in and have lazy mornings, hibernate inside, snuggle up on the sofa with a warm blanket and hot drinks, reading books and bond as a family. I feel like Mama bear with my two cubs at home resting until signs of Spring appear. So far it's been amazing. We are using the car less and walking more to go to the park or shops nearby. I'd love to hear what season you are in and how you are honouring it 💫
// Q. What do you want to be feeling this time next week?
You COULD be feeling ‘same-old same-old’ — just another week, not much headway, with everything a bit ‘meh’. OR, INSTEAD, you COULD be feeling an insane sense of achievement and momentum. You COULD have that great feeling of being ahead of the game for once. Heck, you COULD even be feeling a sense of pride in how much you’ve gotten done… Next week, I’m hosting a free challenge, called ‘Launch Like a Pro’. The premise is simple: each day for 5 days, I’ll help you complete a specific component of your Launch Plan for your product/ program/ eCourse. By the end of the week, you’ll have a fully fleshed out launch strategy — including budget, schedule, vision, and the perfect launch model for your business. You’ll also have the aforementioned sense of momentum, pride, and achievement… Not bad for a mere 15 minutes a day, right?! We start on Monday, so if you want to join us, click the link in my bio to make sure you don’t miss out! 🙌

A huge perk of going to this lovely school is going home with something wonderful like this. Thank you @bonafide.rat.child . I'm collecting your work from now on!
