Take Care of Your Heart…Feed Your Soul!

Mary Beitz
I am a Daughter, a Sister, a Wife, a Mother of many, an Aunt, a Grandmother, an encourager, Friend & Confidante!!! I have been blessed with a positive perspective (for the most part…a work in progress in others), with a glass half full attitude and a sense of humour that has held me up in good times and bad. I have always appreciated being able to reach out, seek information, surrounding myself with women who believe in supporting one another, encouraging, sharing & mentoring. As I enter another season in my life I feel led to share some of the things that I have gleaned in my life so far on a larger stage. We will talk about Family, Friendship, Relationships, Children, Leadership, Compassion, Work, Food, Empathy, Responsibility, Menopause, Marriage, etc. May you be encouraged…laugh often! Ours is not a solitary journey. We women are relational creatures. I believe that we are the best support for one another! Here’s to a Beautiful New Friendship!!!

It has been an interesting couple of months, this 2017.

As I house clean my Heart, throw wide open the closets where I’ve thrown my “Stuff” that I haven’t really wanted to deal with, the dust is profuse and the clutter profound. As an Entrepreneur, a Wife, a Mother, a Grandmother, a Sister & a Friend, there is this delicate thing we all hold in our hands. Our Heart is what drives us, both physically, psychologically & Spiritually.

Depending where you are in your season of life…single, married, soon to be mom, middle aged, retiree, Grandparent, etc., we all have the opportunity to build people up, encourage dreams, supporting physically, spiritually or financially those around us. While not everyone will agree with us, those that cultivate encouragement and belief will be most richly rewarded.

Relationships are complicated things, and yet they are pivotal to the legacy we choose to leave behind. We will all be assessed based on moving targets, and our opportunity is to decide what we want that to be.  Whether you are an Entrepreneur with dreams of creating Your Home Business while you balance the demands of family, whether you are in the workplace or in a period of transition, the older I get, the more I realize how important is the task of working on my “Being”, and let the “doing” take care of itself…

…so that leads me back to the closet. Sometimes the biggest “Ah-ha” is to stop worrying about other people’s stuff, their perception of what and who we are and become vividly invested in taking care of what’s right in front of us! Throw the closet doors open, sort with intention, prioritize with purpose, lean in! Let go of that which does not serve you and share the gift of who you are. We will all be the better for it!
