Vacation Funds.  Rainy Day Funds.  Retirement Funds.  I think it is about time you start a Joy Fund.  A fund whose only purpose is for joyful activities.    Activities, places, people who bring you joy and a smile to your face.  Recently, I went to visit the Stonehedge Inn and Spa in Tyngsboro, MA. where I am hosting a Woman’s Retreat of Rest and Renewal, and I was once again reminded of why I am drawn to this most lovely place.  Immediately upon walking in you begin to de stress.  Relaxation comes over you as you take in the tranquil surroundings.  The rooms are lavish and pampering.  The workshop rooms are a perfect design to aid in our learning and renewal.  The spa simply invites your spirit to be nourished.

The price for the Retreat Weekend in March is $250, includes your overnight stay, 2 healthy meals, all day workshops, use of indoor pool and jacuzzi, a wild Athena’s Goddess party on Saturday night followed by gentle yoga on Sunday morning.  Or stay in bed and relax.  Or get a massage, facial and pedicure. 

 You do so much in your daily life, why not take a night just for YOU?  I know you know ladies who are able to take advantage of weekends like these.  With a Joy Fund, it could be possible for you too.  Budget and plan for activities and events you enjoy.  I travel to the West Coast every year for  fun inspiring workshops as well as enjoy my spa weekends, all made possible with a Joy Fund.  I budget all year so I can take time out for me.  The planning is so worth it!!!I encourage you to set one up too!  Even if the retreat is not something you want to do.  Find something that brings you joy and get that fund ready for action!

If you send in $50 (non refundable) deposit for the March Woman’s Retreat by January 1st, take $25 off the total price.  You then can send in $25 a week until it is paid off or in whatever increments you would like.  

 Budget.  Plan.  Get excited to nourish your soul.  Do joyful activities.  Set up a Joy Fund and Be Joyful.
