I recently traveled on a short trip that took me through rural roads of southern Georgia. On this trip I saw so many watermelons; in the fields, on flatbed trucks, at road side produce stands, that on my way back I had to buy some. I succumbed to the subliminal message I kept getting. I bought a few watermelons from a farmer right off his truck and they were the largest ones I’ve ever seen. When I got them home, I iced them and later opened them up to thoroughly enjoy eating this sweet treat. I took the watermelon outside and allowed the juice to drip all over my face and hands and I spit out the seeds just like when I was a child. Eating this watermelon was playful and multi-sensory. It was a juicer on many levels.
So, what’s been a “juicer” in your life lately? What people, activities, places, elevate your internal energy reserves just thinking about them? Then consider what your “zappers” are; anything that brings your energy down. Some zapper examples are; negative conversations, unfinished projects, not speaking your truth, distractions, or a messy car/room/garage/file. Where are you spending most of your time? If you are focusing more energy on zappers, it’s time to take action and free up some energy. Take inventory of your juicers and zappers by making a list of both, and being intentional about your life. Your soul will shine through your juicers.
I’ll hold the space for you to add more juicers in your life. I see you with huge piece of watermelon with juice running down your smiling face!
Enjoy. Summer. Now.
