Is your tank full?

Have you ever felt that empowered, ready-to-go feeling leaving a gas station with a full tank of gas?

As I left the gas station with that full-steam ahead feeling, I realized it wasn’t the the arrow on my dashboard that was lifting me up.  I was feeling empowered by a full internal energy reservoir!  I had finally taken time over the weekend to fill my internal tank by doing art.  

Check in with yourself for a moment.   What is the level of your internal tank?

Regular topping off helps keep you running smoothly.

There are days when you need deeper replenishment.

Once in a while your batteries need a full recharge.

  • Disappear into a book or binge watch your favorite TV show
  • Go on a weekend (or longer!) retreat
  • Take off on a vacation

You need fuel in your internal tank to keep going!
