Day 26 of My Midlife Sabbatical

As I start to plan my return back home, I asked my therapist for help. I have a good solid morning routine in place, which also involves a night time plan for the next day. This will ensure my mood stays lifted. I have realized above all things that I need to balance my input…

Day 25 of My Midlife Sabbatical

This morning routine of mine seems to be working so I share it here. Then, as 3 of my skin products ran out at the same time, I chat a little about products and how I choose what to buy and try. A brunch with 3 of my besties has me contemplating how life moves…

Day 24 of My Midlife Sabbatical

Besides traditional talk therapy, I have found over the years a couple of places where I let off steam. Sometimes I’ve felt emotional afterwards as my body and mind needed it so bad. I’ve already mentioned zumba being like therapy to me and today I was challenged here. As I walked into class, the person…

Day 22 of My Midlife Sabbatical

Sometimes we just need something different. I haven’t liked my hair in a long time. I’ve went blond to hide grey and rarely liked it. If it was a color I loved, my hair was brittle and snapped off. If it was less brittle, it was usually a golden yellow which did NOT blend grey’s…

Day 21 of My Midlife Sabbatical

After work I got to attend a cocktail party. This time Prismlifestle.co hosted a “sip & sound” event.

Day 18 of My Midlife Sabbatical

Today’s Gonna Be A Good Day. I spent the night with Boyd which I needed so badly but it did mean my night time plans went out the window. No big deal this time and I had my morning routine ready to go when I got up so I knew it would be a good…

Day 17 of My Midlife Sabbatical

Waking up, feeling better lifts my mood no end. I take a brisk walk to get my blood pumping then head out for a little uplifting shopping trip. The new, “Mountain View Village” will be home to our second Beauty Lab location so I expect there will be some extra shopping temptations with all these…

Day 16 of My Midlife Sabbatical

  I am finally feeling a bit better and stayed up half the night learning and thinking. As time flies I am so aware of how little time I have left and need to not waste another minute. I am also aware I need better sleep but I just can’t seem to shut down. A…
