With the final two weeks of August on the horizon, take some time out of your schedule to focus on you. For many of us, Mercury in retrograde was pulling some topsy turvy shit last month, so look towards the nearing end of the month to refocus and reprioritize YOU.
Summer is meant to be a time of gaycations, holidays, travel, relaxation, romance, exploration, and new adventures. Don’t let the dog days of summer bring you down or interrupt your train of awesome. Nope. In fact, if your summer has been rough, make an about face and wash away the summer time blues with the Dog Days of Summer cocktail.
While you cannot control every outcome or situation, you can do what you can to give yourself the break and breathing time you need. If you need some you time, by all means: pause and allow yourself to just be. Forget about all your troubles, forget about the dog days of summer, and sit back. Relax. Take your clothes off. And enjoy the Dog Days of Summer cocktail: the only dog days you’ll need to care about, Florence.
