I can always tell when August arrives. There is the sudden realization that...
Time is running out...Fall is just around the corner...AUGH!!!
The start of August always fills me with a sense of frustration and overwhelm. I had all of these plans and ideas and now everything looks like chaos. This past week, my hair stylist and I were talking about the intentions we each set this spring - a beautiful wildflower garden. We both had plans for beautiful wildflower gardens this year but due to circumstances outside of our control (weather - heat, drought, and high winds) our gardens were ambushed by weeds and animals. We both laughed, shrugged our shoulders, and started to discuss our next steps to course correct and our fall game plans to prepare for next years gardens. We ended the conversation with...
"We tried our best. We gained more experience with managing plants and weeds via organic and permaculture techniques. And next year we will get one step closer to our garden vision."
That conversation reminding me of a comment someone made at the July Bliss Workshop.
What if we approached life like making a new cookie recipe? If the cookie receipt doesn't work, we don't take it personally. We just throw away the cookies and try a new recipe.
What a great approach to life and trying new things. I created a tool to pull out of your toolbox on those days when your inner critic is beating you up for not getting it right the first time. The video is below. Enjoy.
