this week i’m thankful for… relaxing
October 19th, 2012     |    Life

This weekend is the first weekend that Mr. Lively and I will have both be in the apartment having a “normal” weekend. That is, if you count plans tonight, tomorrow night, and a half marathon on Sunday, as “normal.”

In order to finally have a chance to unwind and step away from the constant work on my businesses and the home, Mr. Lively has decided to take me on a date day tomorrow. I don’t know what we are doing exactly, but I know it won’t involve work, the internet, or home goods.

And that is exactly what I need right now.

Too much of a good thing is too much of a good thing. I gotta learn how to relax again. It’s okay with projects laying around the house waiting to be finished. It’s okay that I’m still stuck in transition in my career for the next few weeks. It’s okay that we don’t have any puppy supplies yet.

Those things can happen in the future so I can unwind in the present moment. I gotta live with open hands again.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a fantastic – and relaxing – weekend!

 

  • I frequently feel the same way-I am always going, going, going, the next weekend I don’t have plans at all is a whole month away! When I finally had a day to do nothing last weekend, I stayed in bed til 4pm watching Downton Abbey. We all need to take a step back sometimes and focus on little things that make us happy. I hope your day date is amazing!
