Christmas is only 4 DAYS away!?

If you’re anything like me, Christmas really snuck up on you. And I mean FAST! I like to tell myself – every single year – that I will start shopping early, I will be organized and everything will actually be purchased and it will be a stress free holiday. Then I find myself realizing I have a week left until Christmas. Way to procrastinate Lyn!!!! (it’s my 2nd favourite thing to do you know.)

The overwhelm of the latest lockdown here in Alberta has had me all over the map with my mental, emotional, and even my physical health. Knowing I now have 3 more weeks not being able to see my clients is a hard pill to swallow. *insert seriously sad face here* I’ve really realized over the last number of months, how much all of these interactions actually benefit MY own mental health.

Now, instead of choosing to focus on the negative, I am flipping the script! Don’t get me wrong, I can be, and I am, lazy. I enjoy laying around, binging tv shows and movies just like anyone else, but I’m throwing myself into some business building education from the lovely http://www.dawnbradley.com, and I have to say it’s something I’ve needed for a while! The support and community I have already found has changed everything for me.

Do you know what the solution to BURNOUT is? If you had asked me this two weeks ago, my answer would have been something like – “Take a bath, relax, focus on some good self love/care!” – And it still is, to a certain point.

The best thing to change those feelings of burnout and flip them around, is to talk to someone you trust – Talk to a caring person. Find support. Find your community.

True, sometimes a good cry is a great release too. I have been known to have a good cry here and there myself. But, as I have been known to say – don’t live there! Find a community, a group, some support. Make new friends! *waves*

Grab this book and read it with me, lets concur burnout together!

I can’t wait to share all the exciting things I’ve been learning! If you’re looking for some help building clientele, biz inspiration, or some support be sure to check Dawn out!

And don’t forget, I’m always just a message away.

“If you are receiving this transmission, you are ALIVE!”

As I sat this snowy Tuesday morning warm on my couch with my cozy blanket & my morning can of Coke, watching The Mandalorian on Disney+ I hear:

“If you are receiving this transmission, YOU ARE ALIVE!”

and realize – I needed to hear this today, and I wanted to share it with you.

While everything seems so turned upside down right now, and as it’s easy to fall into the paranoia and fear, I’m way too anxious of a person for that. I’m here to tell you that we are okay! We are alive. If we can slow down and take things day by day they will get easier. There is absolutely no right or wrong way to deal with the everything we are all going through. I have discovered that for my own mental health – I need to focus on today. This moment. Right now. The now that I can control. “YOU ARE ALIVE“!

Yesterday, I spent a couple hours doing some online Balayage education with http://dawnbradleyhair.com, and let me just say how great it felt to set the worries aside for a while and focus on learning something I love – Color! I learned a lot, and it’s inspired me to get out my mannequin and have some fun – Stay tuned for some pics to hit my insta-stories soon! I’m so thankful for this class Dawn shared, I can’t even explain how big of an inspiration to myself and many other stylists Dawn truly has been. So Thank-you Dawn for sharing and reminding so many of us stylists to jump out of our boxes and share our full potential with all of our clients and friends!

Deciding what to share with you today really wasn’t easy. Content is important, I’m a hairstylist, shouldn’t I be posting hairstylist things? Shouldn’t I be trying to make sales right now, to find a way to maintain my business? Probably. Maybe. But right now, selling to you doesn’t feel important. I just want you to know that I’m here for you. Not just for hair advice, not to try and sell you products or anything else. but, as a human, A mother, A daughter, A friend, A wife. I just want you to know I am here for you, however I can be.

If you need anything, please reach out. I’d love to connect if we haven’t already.
