I’ve been feeling a bit rundown and my creative juices have been at a halt these last few weeks. Too much to focus on, I think. I read this quote by Shanti on Pinterest and reminded myself that it’s okay to take a break. Why is it that we feel guilty for giving ourselves time off? Like we should constantly be looking at our phones, or answering emails immediately after they are received – I put so much pressure on myself to always be doing that I miss out on so many moments of just being. So last Wednesday I left Chicago for my family’s home in Wisconsin and had the most wonderful five days out of the city. It was amazing. So this post is really nothing but a reminder to let it go sometimes because these moments are so good for the soul and life is way too short to not let your eyes sparkle.
This summer has been particularly busy. I hate that word because it sounds like an excuse but between wedding planning, weekend trips, and work it doesn’t feel like I’ve taken advantage of this beautiful season that I love and is gone in the blink of an eye.
