In an ongoing series, Keren Weinstein, our Guest Life-Balance Editor, took a much needed trip. More than the need to go on vacation to a new locale, she wanted to find her own sense of balance and thus Project Detox began. Thankfully, Keren will share her journey which will provide a little insight into our needs of finding our equilibrium.
Bags packed and ready to jet set.
The boys are in a different time zone and I have confirmation that they are more than OK! and are actually having a fun’tabulous father-n-son bonding vacation.
Being on the cusp between genuinely happy for them and envy of their time together without me is exactly the point where I can truly allow myself to disconnect and have a guilt free solo trip for Me (remember, I have to chuck Universal Mommy Guilt out before I depart on my first adventure and I am a Jewish mother…so pressure’s on).
It is amazing how the Guilt naturally gets swallowed up by the fact that they are having a better time there and you know your son has a smile on his face even without you around.
Mommy Me time has officially started.
Ever notice when you choose to set an Intention for yourself the world opens up to you as if you are wearing 3D glasses with that Intention?
Same world. Different opportunities & experiences.
We have all clipped out a limited edition (AKA Must Have) LV handbag or Gucci Boots from Harper’s Bazaar, hung it up at our desks and noticed that somehow they made their way to our closets.
This is not a new concept by any means and has been around way before me from Kabalah to the Secret but for a full-time working mother on a mission to restore balance into her life this self-taught-via-experience concept could not come at a better time.
The above picture, and one that captures the essence of what I set out to do on Project Detox, was created by an amazing producer in L.A that I met up with (co-founder of unitenow.org). In this picture, over 4,000 school children from Los Angeles spelled out “Restore Balance” on a beach in celebration of the 12th Annual Ocean Day Kids’ Adopt-A-Beach Clean-Up. No, my Intention did not get this amazing project with 4000 kids to happen but it did bring me to meeting up with Mark and literally stumbling upon the work he created that captures the energy of my Intention for Project Detox – to restore balance.
First Stop – Tucson Arizona.
