back to work (& reality) w/ a tired but FULL heart of what it’s been needing. I spent the last 7 days with my family & it’s been the longest time I’ve spent with all of them in a really long time. We spent the week doing less (less work, house chores, life admin, busy-ness, time on our phones) & doing a whole lot more (family time, being present, exploring, adventuring, having fun)...& it has done wonders to my soul in such a short amount of time. .
life is so busy & it’s so hard for me to unplug, but a week at sea forced me to. I took less pictures (hardly any!) & made more memories. I was more attentive. Less distracted. More in the moment. Less preoccupied. And happier. It was just what I needed. .
I’m learning that when I give myself even a little space to breathe, I can see my priorities more clearly. My husband. My family. My friends. My work. My health. Face to face conversations. Kindness. Gratitude. Love ❤️ .
It’s good to be back but I look forward to unplugging more often & being more mindful of how much time I spend being busy versus how much of it I spend nurturing my family, myself & just enjoying this crazy, beautiful life. .
Happy Wednesday, friends! ❤️
