This morning when I woke up I was determined not to let my pre-work time go by in a guilty rush. Maybe you are familiar with this phenomenon as well. Basically, the hours before I go to work are plagued by feeling like I'm not getting enough done, or I have prioritized the wrong things. I only had time for the laundry and dishes, or errands only, or I only finished half of my current project, etc. These things might sound like enough to make you not feel guilty, but oh no, it doesn't work like that.
When I woke up this morning I thought about how hectic (and amazing) my life has been recently. With recent trips home, to visits in Maryland, a music festival, and lots of visits with close by friends and family members. I thought today I will do my best to be guilt free. I grabbed my morning coffee and the weasel, and sat in our hammock in our beautiful backyard. Technology free, anxieties on the back burner.
I thought about how lucky I am to have my family supporting me and loving me regardless, and my soon-to-be family and how happy I am to be marrying into such a great group of people.
I thought about how lovely it is to have a huge green space for me and my dog, in the middle of downtown in a city.
I thought about how exciting it is that in less than a month and a half, I will be celebrating my love and wonderful relationship with my favorite people.
I thought about what I am most excited about in the future, and let some of the stress of everyday life fall away...
I'm excited about all that the future holds for me, and I am glad that I had a couple lovely moments to take it all in this morning.
Hoping you all take a moment to love what you have today. It's going to be a beautiful day.
