Hey all and happy Sunday! I *very* much needed a weekend like this. Tres relaxing and v. “do nothing” sort of vibes. That said, I am also dreading this week and all the busyness.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking (per usual), journaling and reading. Really giving thought to intention, working with intention and letting go of things that no longer serve you or bring you joy, whether that’s relationships with friends or toxic family members or career-related, with various side projects or other things.
We just seem to have a problem with quitting, or knowing when to quit the right things. Or maybe that’s just me. I’ve been told all my life not to be a quitter, and I pride myself on that. But when do you draw the line? When do you protect yourself and your interests and goals? When is it time to Joy Yee your life and look at the things that bring no longer bring you joy, thank them for their “service,” and then let them go, in order to make room for other things?
I know many people may think there is subtext to this, but I promise you there’s not. It’s just me looking around at people in my life, and myself, and how we all cling to certain things. Sadly, it’s nothing I’ve sorted through myself, but I’m trying. Dammit, I’m trying.
Okay, but on a more rosey note, I had a lovely weekend with my pup and husband. I ate pretty healthy (win!), but still made room for a donut and some caramel and cheese popcorn. I also worked out and went for a v. long walk with Kero on Saturday. Went and saw Doctor Strange (more on this later) and dined on delicious Mexican food (date night!). And I got to read the following links, which made me happy, and will hopefully make you smile as well. Cheers!
