Doesn't it feel like we're just getting into the swing of summer when suddenly we're at the end? Why isn't winter like that?
We hope that you've taken some time out for rest, that you've given yourself permission to sit in the warmth of the sun. We are firm believers in rest. Life will keep flying by if you don't slow down just a bit. That's what summer teaches us.
I hear all the time the expression,"You need to carve out time for __________." Exercise, meditation, self-care, etc. While I know this is true, I have found that this summer I was able to be intentional with the in between time. The "Fringe Hours" as I've heard them called. Finding the rest that fills up my soul vs. the rest that just skims the surface of my needs.
The in between time for me was while I was steaming our new arrivals for the boutique, pumping gas, waiting in line at the grocery store, times alone driving, and many other itty bitty chunks of time I actually do get throughout the day. It's in those times that I would try to check in with myself. How am I feeling? In my head, heart, body? Where am I spiritually? Are my actions lining up with my core beliefs? How are my people? Family, friends, customers? What can I pray for?
This can look different for you. It's just a matter of what fills you up. What gives you TRUE rest.
We at Sparrow, want to be women that meet the deeper needs of our customers, and we can only do that if we have space to think and listen to you. We are striving to keep ourselves rested so that we can help elevate you. Being a mobile boutique gives us a unique advantage to spend longer bits of time with you. You are inviting us into your lives and we are so honored to have that privilege. Every private pop up, every returning customer at our public events is a beautiful opportunity for us to connect and learn. Thank you for allowing us the privilege of knowing you.
We hope that this idea of the in between inspires you to do the same. So go get some soul rest!
