The bugs!!!

Gooood morning NP Canada!

I hope you had a great weekend. I sure did. A hot Summer weekend? What could be better?!

What has been popping up a lot lately are the mosquitos. Holy smokes. Looks like we need some bug spray for the next bit.

Total change in topic….

I know that sometimes, some of us show up not feeling our best whether that be because of a bad sleep, a big family/ life event, a poor mental health day, work distractions, or whatever else is going on.

That happens to me too sometimes.

Of course, it’s hard to rid yourself of these feelings when you #justshowup. But, if you choose to, it can be freeing to leave aside those bags that we carry at different points in life. Just for 30 minutes. And, if you choose to, lean on us. I wrote this long ago but the sentiment is very alive and true – NP’s got my back. Always. You don’t even have to say anything if that’s not your style. Just being side by side, sweating and working your a$$ off, is sometimes enough to know that your NP peeps have got you.

Anyhow, I never know who needs to hear this reminder but, if that’s you, it’s here if/when you need it.

See ya Wednesday!
