Whenever I am lucky enough to get a babysitter I am always torn. Do I stay home and sleep? Or should I go out and socialize. I must admit I always picked the first choice. I just wanted to rest. Lately, I told myself that there is an exciting world out there waiting for me to explore. When I say explore I just mean right here in Delaware for now.
Last week I had the opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds. I was able to spend time with friends. Enjoy mediation and relaxation techniques. Finally, enjoy the beauty of a winery at sunset.

When we arrived at the winery, we were outside under a tent near the water. It was a humid evening but when the session began it didn’t bother me.
Jennifer uses positive affirmations and the crystal alchemy bowls. This was a much-needed experience for me. I was able to relax and pray while the breeze from the water touched my skin. For forty-five minutes I was able to let go and focus on my mind, body and soul. My blog won’t do the experience justice. It is really something that you have to experience for yourself.
As Jennifer talked us through the session I felt so calm and relaxed. When the session was over she passed out what I like to call affirmation cards. We didn’t have to share the cards with the group. This activity was for our own personal reflection.
After the session we were able to sample wines from Chateau Bu-De Winery in their tasting room. My favorite wine of the evening was the Sweet Blush 2014.
I could not have imagined a more perfect way to end the evening. The winery was closing soon. But we were able to sit outside and enjoy the sunset over the water. I was glad that I took time for myself for once. I was able to have time to think about my future, my children and the changes that I want to make in my life.
That night at the winery taught me that sometimes you need to stop and breathe. Take a moment to inhale all of the positive energy and exhale the toxic thoughts that we are carrying. I learned to take the time to appreciate nature and enjoy the sounds of the water and watch God’s work in nature.
I walked away that night with four new “I am” statements that I will recite when I need a reminder for who I AM!
