Do you ever have those moments in life where you just need a break?
Just to walk away and say "enough"?
I know I've been absent for a few days here, but it's because of too much stuff going on.
The weekend was a rough one for me.
Lately I feel beat down, overworked, and just plain tired.
Working on things that make me feel like I am barely keeping my head above water.
Watching my filthy house get dirtier by the minute and wishing I could just slow down to a normal pace.
So you know what?
I put the brakes on, and said phooey to everything else.
Normally on Mondays, I do all the social media stuff and get the blog rolling, and then hurry off to a workout.
Instead, I stayed in my pj's most of the morning.
Took a mid morning nap.
Watched movies on the couch for the better part of a sunny day with my girl and Bella.
It. was. fabulous.
I hardly checked my phone, went on Facebook, or looked at anything blog related.
In the afternoon, we meandered to Trader Joe's.
Enjoyed a trip through Petco looking at critters.
Bought our favorite snacky dinner of peppered salami, aged parmesan, and bruschetta, and had a wonderful meal. (me with a glass of wine, Hannah with water)
It was perfect.
It also gave me some time to consider what I want out of my business and blog.
What "success" means to me, and only me.
What I want my blog, and my posts to be like.
I also finally had a chance to figure out some photography stuff that's been nagging me.
Thought about what I want out of my business.
Clarity. It is such a gift.
A lot of times in life I put too much pressure on myself to do it all.
I can't. And I shouldn't.
I want what I do in life to have meaning, and FUN.
It shouldn't feel like a rat race.
I want what is truly important in life, to be important.
Thanks for your support- I will be back soon with more of my regular stuff, and I am enjoying slowly getting back in the swing of things, but I needed a little break!
This weekend is our annual Frogmore Stew get together, so I will hopefully have a tabletop vignette to show you and our front porch makeover reveal.
See you soon.
