Congratulations! We made it to summer or at least summer weather!
As the sun starts to shine brightly upon us and the warm breeze gently caresses our skin, I find myself reflecting on the true essence of summer and the radiant glow that it brings.
We often associate this glow with external factors like sun-kissed skin and a dewy complexion, but today, I want to take a moment to shift our focus inward and talk about the glow from within.
Yes, my friends, it's time to unleash your inner radiance and let your spirit shine this summer!
When we think of our inner glow, it goes beyond skin-deep.
It's about embracing a sense of vitality, joy, and peace that resonates throughout our entire being.
It's the warm glow that emanates from a heart filled with gratitude, kindness, and self-love.
So, let's embark on a journey together to discover the simple yet transformative ways we can nurture our inner radiance and let it shine brightly this season.
One way to bring out your inner glow is by embracing the power of self-care rituals.
Carve out time each day, even if it's just a few minutes, to reconnect with yourself.
It can be as simple as sipping an icy glass of iced coffee (preferably without spilling it all over your favorite robe).
Humming along to your favorite tone with the windows down (and singing at the top of your lungs)
Immersing yourself in a calming bath at night (no rubber duck required 🛀, but highly recommended for added fun)
Enjoying a leisurely walk in nature (without the kids if you can imagine that).
These moments of self-care nourish not only your body but also your spirit, allowing your inner radiance to bloom.
Another way to unleash your inner glow is by embracing the delightful array of fresh fruits, vegetables, and hydrating foods that summer generously provides.
Trust me, I'm not here to lecture you about eating kale and drinking green smoothies exclusively (pass me the occasional slice of pizza, 🍕 please!). But there's something truly magical about indulging in nature's bounty during this season.
I know I plan to dive into the vibrant flavors and juicy goodness that summer brings. I will treat myself to a succulent watermelon that quenches my thirst and brings a smile to my face. I can't wait to experience the burst of sunshine in every bite of a perfectly juicy peach.
And why not savor a scoop of ice cream every now and then?
Life is all about balance, and a little sweet treat can add its own glow to your day (plus, it's pure happiness in a cone, 🍦am I right?).
Embrace the deliciousness and let it nourish your body and spirit because a nourished soul truly radiates.
❤️ 💣 Here is the truth about why I'm sharing all of this with you in this month's Love Letter.
Last summer, I found myself caught up in the whirlwind of busyness, chasing deadlines and attending to endless responsibilities.
Don't get me wrong, I love running my business, but I realized that amidst the chaos, I had neglected my inner radiance.
It was time for a change.
I have made the conscious decision to slow down, simplify my routine, and reconnect with what truly matters to me this summer.
I have created space for self-care (through daily movement...notice I did not say exercise 😉), I am embracing the beauty of simplicity and prioritizing my well-being. Simply put, I'm taking time to fully breathe in AND out!
I know it is going to feel strange, not running quite as fast as in summers past and deliberately prioritizing myself at times.
But I know I'm worth it (and here's a hint, you are too!).
I've started making these changes and I already feel a newfound sense of joy, calmness, and, yes, that radiant glow from within.
My dear friends (and I truly mean that), I encourage you to embark on your own journey of embracing the summer glow.
Take a step back from the chaos of daily life and create moments of stillness.
Embrace the simplicity of every aspect of your life (including your skincare rituals) that nurtures and uplifts your spirit.
Nourish yourself with wholesome foods, and summertime treats (without guilt) that energize and revitalize.
And, most importantly, always remember to be kind to yourself and others, for kindness, is the truest form of radiance.
As we continue to navigate the summer months, let's embark on this journey together.
I invite you to join our True North Beauty community and share your experiences, inspirations, and moments of self-discovery.
Together, we can create a collective glow that illuminates not just our lives but the lives of those around us.
Wishing you a summer filled with boundless joy, inner radiance, and endless possibilities.
