It’s hard to believe a week has passed since we were all together exploring the six TDJ Tenets, noshing on warm vegan beignets, sipping green juice, making connections, creating action steps, watching TranquiliT come to life on six gorgeous models, and reflecting while surrounded by art, chandeliers, peonies, and the sounds of piano.
Earlier today I posted some of these photos on the TDJ Soirée private Facebook group and asked about any ripple effects from our time together. By focusing on a Tenet or area that needs attention from our Seasonal Life Reviews (in Year of Tranquility and the Daybook), we can take micromovements or small shifts toward growth.
Here’s what I shared about my own:
“For me, I’ve been more cognizant of CREATIVITY. For example, I scheduled creative adventures for Mom all week and even pulled pages from my Daybook to outline her schedule with a highlighter. I met up with friends for hand lettering practice. Mom and I spent Friday night practicing our drawing “skills” with Flow’s 50 Ways to Draw Your Beautiful Ordinary Life. (Why are teapots so hard to draw?!) We wandered the three floors of Bethesda’s Anthropologie store and were flooded with inspiration. I shared a few new photos on Instagram (an ongoing creative outlet that helps me see ordinary moments with a fresh eye).”
Earlier today I came across this F. Scott Fitzgerald quote, “For what’s it’s worth, it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be . . . I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
Although the Soirée has passed, I hope to continue challenging myself to live these Tenets and to infuse my days with beautiful moments through creative play, mindfulness practices, self-care, and more. Who’s with me?! Bisous. x
