I'm sitting here on an airplane coming back from Deep Creek, Maryland, with over 4 hours of time to reflect on my weekend away. It was a time spent with new friends, fellow coaches and just all-around great women! I am the kind of person who LOVES meeting new people. I seriously get excited to meet others and learn their stories. I know there are so many people NOT like that, so sometimes, yes, I know I may seem crazy to people. But, it really energizes me!
I got in on Friday afternoon into Pittsburg, PA and drove to Maryland with 2 other coaches who also flew into PA. The evening was spent just getting to know each other, there were about 20 gals who were on this leadership retreat.
Saturday, we woke up and had breakfast together...I was able try some REALLY good new recipes. First was a delicious Breakfast Oatmeal Bake, and the other was a Baked French Toast! The best part about these is that they were HEALTHY and CLEAN recipes! So, yes...I had a bit of both and they were SO yummy!
Next it was time for some small breakout sessions and team building activities. I love learning and developing as a person. It is so important to continue to learn new things and grow as an individual, no matter what you are doing! This Saturday morning was perfect for that. I learned more about blogging, social media, and just more personal development!
As an added bonus, I was blessed to be in the cold crisp fall weather that the East Coast brings with beautifully colored fall leaves and even some snow on the ground!! We don't get that in Southern California!
What was the last thing you did to recharge yourslef? It doesn't have to be a trip away to be able to be recharged, it can be as simple as taking a bath, reading for 20 minutes, going for a walk/run by yourself. Take time out this week to recharge YOU! As women, we forget to do that. For me, this was a weekend away that recharged me and I'm ready an refocused on what I need to do for my family, kids, and business.
If you don't recharge, you'll burn-out. Find some fuel to recharge yourself today!
