How was your month?

June is quickly coming to a close and we will embark on a new month in less than 48 hours.

As time passes, be sure to make the time to reflect upon life. What is going well for you, and what isn’t? How can you improve upon something, or do you need to change direction completely? What have you learned, and what do you want to learn? How have you contributed to making someone’s life better, or how did you hurt them?

Living authentically is a conscious decision. It is something that must be acted upon each day through mindfulness and reflection. Don’t wait to until something goes wrong to check-in with yourself – do it daily, and often.

When you find yourself going through the  motions of life, simply flipping pages on a calendar or scrolling the dates on your phone, stop. Take a moment to slow down, breathe and engage in that moment. In the words of John Lennon, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” Don’t be so busy that it passes you by.

As you prepare to bid farewell to June and kick-off July, take a few minutes to think back on these past days.

How was your month?
