saturday trunk show + self-care

local hip tranquil chicks, swing by the TranquiliT showroom (1820 T street, suite 2) THIS saturday from 12-4 for some fabulous spring savings AND vegan cookies AND sumptuous libations. can't wait to see you there. RSVP to

as my world continues to feel disheveled, exciting, and, at times, unmanageable, i'm exploring ways to simplify, simplify, simplify. the challenge is that there is nothing that i want to shed but in order to maintain tranquility, i must find ways to maximize my efforts. for example, next weekend (which some people actually take off) i have scheduled a photo shoot, leading teacher training, teaching a 3-hour master class, and attending a tranquil space foundation meeting. i guess this wouldn't be an issue if i actually took a day or even a few hours off.

i'm assigned a coach through my naropa leadership training and she recommended that i go through and schedule my creative time. sound like a familiar recommendation that i'm always preaching! ;) well, this morning was to be creative space but i needed to speak with my accountant and this was our only available time this week. story of my life - at least at the moment. i'm vowing to change this and will continue to share my struggle with you. for now, i've lined up a fun artist date for the evening - going to hear anne lamott speak - and plan to play in baltimore after my book signing this sunday! taking down time and doing things differently is CRITICAL! i actually started my day with a 9:15 meeting yesterday and loved it! despite not being happy about waking up to the alarm, it was lovely to be sipping tea at a cafe at 9:15am rather than 9:15pm. small things like this shake up our routine and offer an amazing opportunity to blossom - spring is around the corner after all!

you rock---I love anne lamott and I never would have known that she is speaking in DC if I had not read your blog. I consider that my accidental artist date. Thanks

Kimberly it sounds like you need some serious rest! If I were you I'd escape to a beach with nothing but a bathing suit, flip flops, skirts, sunscreen, and tons of magazines and books! And maybe beau. ;-)

Seriously, I hope you find some down time soon.
