Friday, I'm in Love.

Sorry everyone for the radio silence over here! I've been trying something new lately. Living in the now. I love, love, triple love my blog but I've been wanting to take my life off screen and into the real world. I've been using my time getting back into the gym, cooking a nice dinner, traveling on the weekends, snuggling with my favorites, getting thai take out and having movie nights on a random Tuesday, playing in my cornhole league on Wednesdays, and last night I went for a lovely walk all by myself just window shopping and taking in the sights. It's been glorious!
 I saw this on Pinterest this morning and it spoke to me. When the daily grind of the work week feels like it can get us down, we need to remind ourselves that we don't have to wait  until __________ (fill in the blank for yourself) to be happy. I'm just as guilty of waiting for the weekend, the summer, the perfect job, relationship etc. when in reality your happiness can be found on a Thursday night -- if you make the effort to make it special. So get that take out, rent that movie, pop a bottle of bubbly and do whatever your little heart desires. Leave the dishes in the sink. It doesn't have to wait for the weekend. Make the most of the moment you're in now and make it special :)

I hope to get to posting a little more frequently soon, but I have to admit, I'm kinda loving my online disconnect right now! Don't worry, I'm not giving up blogging anytime soon -- I think I might just have a case of spring fever.

So in the mean time smile and make today special.
Because it's Friday, and I'm in love.

  3. Great post - a book I would recommend around this idea and a book that changed my life, "The Power of Now" by Tolle. Great book and it is an easy read.

    A typically message would be when you get caught in a rain storm, don't think how much the situation is undesired and how uncomfortable you are, rather feel the rain drops hit your face and absorb the beauty of the rain. Take in the elements of the rain that give life as well as clean the buildings and streets.
