Hi friends- how was your weekend? I had nothing work related going on and I spent time with Brad Pitt. April is going to be a crazy month for me work wise so it was nice to take it easy this weekend. What about you? Did you do anything fun? I was originally going to see the Cherry Blossoms in DC but the weather put a damper on those plans. ____________________________________________________________
A few weeks ago Lululemon sent me to the Landmark Forum. The forum is a intense weekend long seminar where you basically learn certain skills to help you create the life you want. It has a lot to do the language that you use to help you have your own personal tool kit for living your life to the fullest. This may seem confusing to some, eye opening to others, and really resonating to others.
I’ve thought a lot about what I think I’m meant to do in life or my destiny if you want call it that as I’ve written about before and that I had thought there is something essentially that we are all meant to do in life- we just have to figure that out. Figure out what our dharma is. I guess something I realized that with that- the idea of duty and destiny- is that we are the ones who give meaning to what we do in life.
I used to complain all the time about not having enough “Camille time.” If you talk to me often enough, I’m sure you’ve heard me talking about this. But one thing I specifically took away from the forum is that we are each responsible for our actions. So- me trying to blame everyone and everything on not having enough Camille time really means that I am the one in charge of how I spend my time.
Life is what you make it.
Our lives are waves that come up out of the ocean of eternity, break upon the beach of earth, lapse back to the ocean of eternity. Some are sunlit, some run in storm and rain; one is a quiet ripple, another is a thunderous breaker; and once in many centuries comes a great tidal wave that sweeps over a continent; but all go back to the sea and lie equally there. ~Austin O’Malley
So I had a weekend away and it was blissful. I feel relaxed and recharged for the week ahead!
This girl kept my feet warm.
I did lots of this:
Note- I am now obsessed with the Keurig coffee makers! I really want one- but I’d be for sure a caffeine addict if I had one. I also ate food that was not gluten and dairy free! Gahhhh! But it was good. I didn’t take any pics though. Next time!
Present moment living, getting in touch with your now, is at the heart of effective living. When you think about it, there really is no other moment you can live. Now is all there is, and the future is just another present moment to live when it arrives. ~Wayne Dyer
And ended with this:
I hope you’re having a great start to the week!
