Y’all. Life has been so awesome lately. And so busy. So awesome and busy that finding time to tell you about it is like trying to find my black Havaianas at the bottom of my shoe pile in the closet. Translation: hard. Work has been incredible, and has quickly become a top priority (behind sleeping and hanging out with Shelton, of course).

Let me tell you — so many things have fallen by the wayside. Like, the cleanliness of our apartment, for one. (Turns out I’d rather have a messy apartment and interact with people all day than the other way around.) Transitioning from working from home to working full-time in a crazy-busy office where I am challenged every single minute of the day has been tough, but in a good way. I love that I’m so engaged at work — that I’m fortunate enough to have such a good job with such good people. But, I also feel the need to get back on track health-wise. I was feeling pretty shitty about this. You know how I get. I have definitely felt like somehow I need to “do it all.” Roll out of bed like a Disney Princess. Work out. Eat a fresh breakfast. Pack a wholesome lunch. Be at work early. Kill it, all day. Eat said wholesome lunch. Work late. Come home and prepare a wholesome dinner. Spend quality time with Shelton. Create something. Go to bed early. Wake up, repeat.
I think we all have a “best version” of our life check list of sorts. I think we should all probably take them with a grain of salt, because each day is different and provides its’ own set of challenges. And we should really just give ourselves more credit.
I can’t do everything, and that’s okay. Wow. Just typing that made me feel worlds better. Say hello to my new mantra.
It will all work out though. Seasons of change, like this one that I am experiencing, reminds me that all I need to do is make a new plan. It’s that simple. My home life is so great. Now my work life is just as great. And I will find ways to balance out the other areas.
Do you have any tips? I’d love to hear them.
Oh, and today we went to Raven Rock State Park and had an awesome adventure. (No big deal.) I will treasure the memories we made today forever. It’s a good thing to be one with nature every now and then. Get out there before it gets too hot, y’all!
Enjoy the photo dump. More posts coming soon. Rave on, Sarah
