The Sunday R&R

Hello and I hope that you are having a wonderful Sunday!  This week has been all about wanderlusting, with us finally booking a place in Ibiza for some R&R in 4 weeks time.  As a female entrepreneur I find it difficult to have downtime/ relax and just live in my feminine energy.  Mostly I live in my masculine energy of “getting things done” and the guilt  when relaxing can be overwhelming.

On a recent walk with some friends we were discussing our upcoming holiday and the idea of me sitting down, just relaxing, not on my phone, and to them me not doing any of this for more than a couple of hours was hilarious.  Sometime you need to see yourself from the outside, and this was just what I needed to reassess my relationship with “self care”, the time when it is okay to make sure that I am okay.

So whether you are an entrepreneur, bride or groom, I encourage you to look at this today and see when you’ve book in your ‘self care’ sessions over the next 2 weeks?

If you’ve been super busy this week, fear not as you can catch up in the Sunday R&R.  On Monday  we started the week with a Vineyard wedding in Provence at Chateau Vaudois by Celine Chhuon – see full wedding here.
