it's okay to take it easy

after two weeks of adventures and friends, i'm ready for a vacation. funny how that works! just when my brain is ready to dive into new projects, my body says NO WAY! actually, even my brain was exhausted by the end of the day yesterday.

so even though i am very excited to start working out new projects/plans/life. and even though there was a wild outdoor concert happening afterhours at my work yesterday. and even though there's still a bunch of cleaning and organizing to be done. and brainstorming that has to happen. and planning that needs to start... last night, i knew my brain and body were on the edge of a mini meltdown. so i gave myself permission to just take it easy.

and it was just what i needed. nothing special, but a few important elements:
+ straight home from work, no errands
+ simple pasta for supper with a glass of wine
+ a bowl of ben & jerry's, of course
+ lots of eco/design/biz blogs to read
+ early bedtime with a new book

now i'm recharged and ready to take on the world! well, in my own small way at least. hope you enjoy some time taking it easy this weekend! xo

  1. oh, i totally agree! man, it is good to do things, and soooo good to let yourself have downtime (i have a hard time with this, but i am learning!). i'm excited to hear about new adventures and plans and life. here we go, one step at a time!

  2. I have a hard time with downtime, too. I have no clue what to do with myself when I'm not working! But the more I make myself play, the more I crave it. I just have to schedule it in, or it won't happen.

  3. please let us know how the book is! i've passed by it a couple times & i'm definitely interested in checking it out...
