Happy Easter!

Easter is one of my favourite holidays. I love the space that Easter provides. For me, Easter is all about indulgence. I indulge in family, I indulge in rest, I eat hot cross buns dripping in butter. and I nibble on the finest chocolate. I take four days to let myself have whatever I want.

The word indulgent means to allow yourself pleasure, to allow excessive generosity and consideration.

Generosity, pleasure, and consideration are three of my favourite things.

When you run a practice, being in service to others is what you do. Generosity is the way we market, the way we sell, and the way we deliver. Generosity is an energy, a belief that the more you put out, the more will come back. It’s knowing that to get, you have to give.

‘Doing work you love, with people you like, the way you want’, is a commitment to working in your preferences. To do the work that you get the most pleasure from, with the people you enjoy, delivering in methods and locations that you adore. The pleasure of getting well paid while doing work that is enjoyable is whole the point of running a practice.

Consideration is about being “care-full”. Completely different to being ‘careful’ meaning to avoid danger or harm. Care-full means to be full of care. To think of others, to notice, and to nurture. To be thoughtful.

Thought-full is a wonderful way to describe thought leaders. Full of thoughts. I have been full of thoughts for as long as I can remember. Thanks to the curriculum I now have them captured, collected, and curated into folders that I can select and send out to the world.

Running a practice and being a source of solutions for your clients means that you need to master being generous and considerate of your own needs. You need to make time for things that give you pleasure.

Imagine you had a plant. One that provided you with everything. A plant so special that you lived off its offerings.

A plant that created and delivered everything you needed to make a living, to provide for your family, and, to make the difference you were born to make.

I am pretty sure that you would want to take really good care of that plant! That you would be generous in providing what it needed, that you would be considerate of what it wanted and you would be super focussed on providing it pleasure.

You are that very plant! You are a source that your family, clients, and the world benefit from. Take this Easter to consider yourself, to be generous, and to indulge in all the things that give you pleasure!

May your buns be soft, your eggs be sweet, and your heart be full.

Happy Easter!
