This past week, the flu took me down. I mean, really took me down. I could hardly get out of bed and couldn’t get rid of my fever for days. A bad headache turned into a migraine that was so ruthless I couldn’t even look at any type of screen (No emails. No TV. No Instagram). I missed a speaking engagement; I missed more than a weeks’ worth of workouts. I kept thinking to myself, “this is not how I planned to start my year! I’ve got things to do!”
Then it hit me.
When you don’t take enough time to rest – your body will force you to rest. My body had had enough. It needed a break! So, I slept. And, I slept some more. Until finally, I was rested.
I’m sharing this to encourage you to listen to your body and rest when you need it. Resting is not lazy, it is crucial! Give your body the rest and sleep it deserves, and I promise it will thank you!
This month, we’re honored to feature the beautiful ladies of Lewisville Laser & Aesthetics on our cover. They are celebrating 16 years in business this month! I’ve been a patient at LLA since the beginning, and I cannot say enough great things about their entire team. If you need an updated skincare routine – they’ve got you covered. If you are looking for Botox or filler – they’ve also got you covered. Read all about LLA (and see their fabulous new logo) beginning on page 24.
I’m thrilled to announce that Forsyth Family is launching a partnership with Triad Mom’s on Main! I won’t give it all away, but stay tuned for details about our next Kids’ Morning Out event in March as well as a very exciting lineup of events for 2024. I told y’all in January that one of the things I’m adding “more ” in 2024 is collaborations, and I wasn’t kidding!
Our sister magazine, Forsyth Woman, is hosting an extra special Galentine’s themed Girls’ Night Out event on Tuesday, February 13th at Robert Hall. Scan the QR code below to purchase your ticket!
Before I close out, I must wish a very happy 90th Birthday to my Pop Pop Charlie! What a milestone! From living in a sailboat for years with my Mamaw to being a member of the boat club at Lake Norman today (at 90 years old!), this amazing man has some incredible stories to tell. I look forward to reading his column in LKN Magazine every single month. (You can read it online at lkn-magazine.com – just search “One Man’s Perspective”). I love him very much and can’t wait to celebrate him at the end of this month!
Wishing you a month full of love,
