"Do not worry that your life is turning upside down.

How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?" ~ Rumi 


Life continues to turn us topsy-turvy and upside down and sometimes you end up realizing you're going a completely different direction than where you intended.  Peace comes with finding the balance of staying focused, patient, faithful, persistent, and developing flexibility so you can go with the flow when changes or obstacles creep up. 


For many (especially in southwest Florida after the snowbirds have left)...summer is a slower, quieter time and allows for self-care, self-reflection, mental re-booting, and re-tuning your internal GPS. Take time to get back on track, turn rightside up, or just enjoy the view with a different perspective!  Slowing down the pace expands sense of time before back to school fall and holiday madness seasons inch up right around the corner... 

  If you are ready to slow down and "smell the roses," feel free to join us for any of our self-care summer programs...
