“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” Joel A. Barker
This quote has always been a bit of a wake up call for me. As a creative person, your mind wonders… A LOT. You want to start things on a daily basis but the truth is that as life happens, your business grows and so do your children…your time becomes a luxury you simply cannot undervalue. Sometimes that time is invested in things and with people that undervalue us; sometimes that time is never invested in ourselves.
I’ve had this crazy idea for a long time: I want a place where I could come and go as I please and break up the monotony of working from home, be around other adult women or simply unwind and catch up on a book. A place where I can get a massage or facial right after a meeting, a place where I could spend time on, take care of and connect with myself.
With the madness of our schedules somedays self-nurturing seems impossible and the ultimate joke is that we can continue moving forward taking care of everything and everyone else EXCEPT ourselves. Because we’re superwomen, right?
If I am leading a business and a family, doesn’t my engine need oil and gas too? A car can’t run on Empty. I am calling bullshit on that one ladies and I am inviting you to evaluate how you’re spending your time and if you’re investing some of it into your self care.
So… this place that was a dream is opening next week and I’d love for you to celebrate the opening of ETTM’s 360º Lifestyle Lounge on Tuesday, June 10th, 2014 at 6:30pm. Find all the details below. You can also RSVP HERE.
