The simple things
This week went by in a heartbeat. That's the good thing about being busy, time flies by! On the downside, focusing so much on work can really take a toll on you physically and emotionally. It's a fine balance I yet have to master.
Unlike the last few weeks, this week felt eternal. It's crazy how much feeling unwell really affects how your days play out. Unfortunately for me, I can't afford to have any sick days. With the upcoming bakesale (and a few other surprises I have planned for you), my days have been pretty chaotic. Being sick will just have to wait until- maybe- July.
What a beautiful day it is today! Actually, we've been blessed with decent weather for most of this week- with the exception of yesterday, which was a bit too warm for my personal comfort. It's difficult not to feel uplifted by this beautiful weather, don't you think? And when the beautiful weather falls on a Friday...it's a bonus!
I feel like this was such an eventful and unpredictable week, kind of like the weather here right now. I accomplished so much, both personally and professionally, managed to get sick as a dog for 2 days straight (losing 3 pounds overnight, sigh!), had to take one of our furry babies to the Emergency Room, dealt with a number of issues that popped out of nowhere, got a little behind due to the mid-week holiday and to top it off, my week isn't even over yet. Needless to say, it did not go as I had planned.
I'm not going to lie, this week was pretty great. I stayed right on track in terms of my nutrition, finished my to-do list (for the first time, ever!), bought a ton of super ingredients to give our juices a little boost, and even had some extra time to meet with a friend for coffee on a date which we discussed exciting new projects. To top it off, I'm actually looking forward to a weekend filled with events. Oh, and you know what's even better? In less than a week we'll be in Chicago meeting our little niece for the very first time!
You see? I can't complain!
Today I woke up feeling a little grumpy; the stress and pressures of the week finally took a toll on me. To top it off, yesterday's traffic did not help (what was that all about? Please don't tell me it was the rain), but then I thought, "why am I so grumpy for? Today is Friday!" So I got up, got dressed, went for a run, and for a little Friday pampering at the salon. What is it about a pedicure that completely transforms your mood?
Today I woke up feeling a little under the weather (must be this crazy weather!). On the bright side, being sick has forced to to slow down, get some extra sleep and let my body rest. Thankfully, today is Friday and although I have lot's to accomplish over the weekend, I'll be able to do so at my own pace, and my own time.
Hi everyone, I'm sorry the "Simple Things" post is a little late. With my dad in town, last week was impossibly chaotic. It was so good to have him around. It's funny how (sometimes) you don't really realize how much you've missed someone until they are right there, next to you.
With a lot of writing to do in these next few days, I'm actually looking forward to a calm and productive weekend. Perhaps going for a walk, drinking lot's of coffee and listening to inspirational playlists (everyone has those, right?). This entire week I had a million things going through my head, so I suspect it will require a lot of effort on my part to stay focused and clear of annoying distractions.
This week was tough. I was sore to the point where I could barely walk and found it extremely difficult to wake up in the morning. Have you seen how dark it still is at 6:00am? Well, just imagine at 4:30. Not fun. Overall however, this week was a very inspiring and productive one...and emotionally enriching (can I say that?).
