A Thought For Your Monday
This Pinterest find (as so many of them do) smacked me right in the face this past week.
It’s short, you guys. Life is short. You need to get out there, find your passions, dream your dreams, look beyond the every day because the extraordinary is out there.
I am not saying quit your job and move to Paris (though that sounds nice). I am a realist. And for most of us, it’s not realistic to drop everything and be a dreamer. But we can take little baby dream steps in the meantime.
A few days ago, I enrolled for a floral workshop with Design Love Fest and Moon Canyon in June. I have wanted to take a flower arranging workshop forever but I could never seem to justify the investment in money or time to do it. Until now. It’s really about investing in myself, in something I have always been curious about, in a new creative outlet that I may just love.
We also booked our 10-year anniversary trip to Hawaii in August. This was a big one because (again) it inevitably came with a big price tag and there are a million and one other things we should probably spend money on instead of a week in paradise making memories with our little family in the sun. Or is there?
I am submitting an essay to Elle Magazine. It’s part of a reader contest and my first inclination was to shy away from it because there are probably thousands of great Elle readers with amazing personal stories and tribulations who can write circles around me…but you know what? It isn’t about their circle. It’s about my line.
I don’t want to stare at that line and say I should have or I would have or I could have.
I want to do. Even if it’s in baby steps.
I hope you will, too.
Have a great Monday. xx
