I woke up last Sunday thinking about how I wanted to spend my day. It had snowed and part of me wanted to kick back, read, relax with the pups, and just do whatever I wanted to do. The other part of me– the busy woman who does too much for her own good part– was mentally scanning through the list of things that I “should” do to check them off the list for an easier start to the week. Regardless of what I did the rest of the day, I decided to have a leisurely breakfast by making my favorite pumpkin pancakes with toasted pecans and warm maple syrup.

Just as I sat down in my sunroom to enjoy my breakfast, I received a text from a close friend in a nearby city. She wanted to tell me what my horoscope said since she thought it was funny. Little did she know that the words she shared would set the course for my day.

I’m a big believer in creating time for yourself to recharge and recover, but I struggle like the next woman to stop everything and simply “be”. In this case, the decision to sit around and do little to nothing, was, in contrast exactly what I needed to be doing to reach my next level of “brilliance”.

Take a look at the vlog I taped that morning to hear what my horoscope said and see how it helps you to become more brilliant as well!
