Maybe we need a One Woman Retreat.
For many years, I planned women’s retreats, brought in amazing speakers, created relaxing themes and I loved helping to nurture and refresh other women’s hearts, but I wasn’t so good at taking care of my own.
So a few years ago I experienced the pure joy of a one woman retreat. It wasn’t something I was immediately comfortable with, and it took some time for me to acclimate to giving myself permission to exhale. But the reward left me recharged and refreshed for months.
I slept…read…walked…slept more…ate…sat on the beach…journaled and practiced finding moments of serenity in the midst of trying to get in touch with myself.
“Nowhere can a woman find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in her own soul.”
It’s been too long since my last retreat. It seems the theme of personal retreats is making a comeback throughout many blogs. Whether for an afternoon, a day or a weekend, a one woman retreat is a perfect way to refresh and reconnect with ourselves.
The end of summer is quickly approaching, but there’s still time to be intentional and plan some time away. In case you’re like me and need a little direction, check out these resources and ideas from some wonderful bloggers.

One more way to celebrate all month…just for you?
I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award!
Wondering what the Liebster award is? It’s a virtual award which is passed on from blogger to blogger as a show of support, and I appreciate the support from Lou&Lea! I want to give you the chance to be nominated also.
♥ So here is how it will work: Instead of choosing a Featured Fresh Find each week, I’ll be celebrating by leaving the link-up open for the next 6 weeks!
♥ You’re invited to link-up your favorite blog posts HERE! I’ll choose 11 of my favorite blogs to pass on the award. In the coming weeks, I’ll also include a special blog post to fulfill the requirements of the award and I’ll announce the winners on August 11th, 2017.
