I feel like I can finally come up for air after this past week.  For a minute there I was running on fumes. What helps me through hectic times is remembering that nothing lasts for ever. I take it  one hour, one minute, one breath at a time.  

It also helps to have a good perspective.  Don't get me wrong, my perspective doesn't make me feel any less tired at the end of the day. It doesn't make me excited to have to take off my shoes and trudge across icky airport floors, or make me leap with joy at the thought of spending an entire weekend working on articulating my spine. It just means that I choose to be grateful for the opportunities that I have been afforded, and grateful that I made it to the end of day.


Thank you for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!

The next couple of weeks are going to be very busy for me. I'm starting my second level of Pilates certification and I have some business travel. Sometimes I feel as if I have so many things to do(catch up on the Walking Dead, take up German, practice Pilates, take a photography class) and so little time.

 At some point tonight I'm going to have to get up, turn off my laptop, do some laundry and work on my teaser. And I will, just as soon as I finish watching this episode of Big Bang Theory :)

Have a great weekend. Thanks for all of the lovely comments!

If the Easter bunny came to you yesterday and told you that if you were able to send a text with the top ten things that make you truly happy you would be guaranteed those things every day for the rest of your life, would you be able to do it? What if you only had 60 seconds to send the text? How many things do you think you could come up with? I tried this little experiment myself and I'm sad to report that after two minutes I only had five things. Two things in my defense, however. First, I'm not the fastest of texters. Secondly I was over thinking it. I had The Big Bang Theory, nail polish and guacamole in my text and I was like wait a minute..should I put food?

Now truth be told I've never been big on navel gazing self reflection. I have nothing against it I just can never seem to find the time. I do think that I should be able to articulate what makes me happy, so I gave it some thought and this is what I came up with in no particular order(remember this is a judgement free zone)

nail polish
spending time with the people I love
watching movies
fresh flowers
the sound of waves crashing on to the shore

y tu? What makes you happy?
