I don’t know about you but lately I’ve been feeling the need for some inspiration and self-renewal. We set our new year’s resolutions back in January and now we’re at the mid-year point. While I’ve come a long way in meeting many of my personal goals, lately I’ve been feeling a bit drained and worn out. I’ve been working very hard. I’m exhausted and wondering if this is all worth it.
It doesn’t matter whether you are starting a business, writing a novel, trying to lose 50 pounds, or just working hard to raise the very best children you can. We all need some renewal now and again.
I’m not talking about a massage or a piece of chocolate. I’m talking about real inspiration. This isn’t just motivation — something that makes you work harder, driven out of fear and stress. This is true inspiration — the feeling of passion and excitement you get from the clear vision of where you are headed in the future. It’s only when you feel excited and really inspired that you can make positive changes in your life.
And sometimes, for me, as a woman, hearing another woman say something that inspires me means that much more. I love men, and I learn a lot from them, but hearing an inspirational, uplifting message from another woman makes it somehow easier to relate to — at least for me.
Renew You 2010
A few weeks ago I got a call from Andrea Ramirez, a WAPF nutritionist and holistic health coach. Andrea told me about a package she had put together called Renew You 2010. She found 16 women from various fields and interviewed them on the internet. Everyone from celebrity fitness trainer, JJ Virgin to Connie Bennett, author of Sugar Shock.
I’m very excited to tune in this weekend. I’ve written before about how I love podcasts and mp3 recordings of books. They really help me escape and recharge. I can’t wait to listen to the interviews on weight loss and exercise, the one on “hot sexy hormones,” and the ones on money and finance. Oh, and the one on “Defining Your Personal Style from the Inside Out” — that sounds like so much fun!
These recorded interviews will be streaming live this weekend from June 23th at 9pm until June 28th at Midnight, EST.
Here’s the full list:
* Karly Randolph Pitman: The Self-Care Pathway: Four Practices to End Emotional and Overeating
* JJ Virgin: Five Insider Secrets to Boost Your Energy, Shrink Your Waistline and Feel Your Best
