I am FIRST, being aware of the fact that I do need nurturing! This has been enlightening for me, and I feel good about taking time for ME, and not guilty about neglecting someone or something else that I could be doing instead (because there is ALWAYS something 'else'). I have been doing a lot of reading, and have enjoyed picking up a few projects on the side (ie sewing bedspreads for girls' bedroom, exercising and getting outside to 'play' everyday. Yesterday it was throwing snowballs, and I have done some sledding and ice skating. The outside does wonders for me.

As I read your post I realize that even though I don't like the cold, I like winter. I like to stay in, do less outside stuff and more of the things I usually ignore, like organizing, writing, etc.

this is so beautifully expressed, whitney...a testament to what you are saying...that this winter-tending to yourself leads to fresh energy to create beauty for others

This is wonderfully expressed. I wish I knew off the top of my head what I did for me in the winter. I miss walking, which is me time. Thank you for reminding me of this, again and again.

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
