This weekend’s quote was chosen to describe my approach to today. Lately I’ve been feeling very overwhelmed. There are so many things I’m trying to do. Trying to accomplish. Honestly, I feel like I’ve been pursuing something for YEARS…
A degree. Another degree. A house. A number on the scale. A better job. A new house. A book deal. etc. etc. etc.
It never ends!
I seem to have grown into a very goal orientated person. I say “grown” because I never really considered myself driven. But as I get older, I know what I want out of life and I do my best to achieve it. I mean, why wouldn’t I?
But sometimes… you have to slow down. You just have to.
“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”
I love this quote because it reminds me that I don’t need to achieve something else, something new, to be happy. I don’t need to be thinner. Or wearing a specific size. Or living in a specific house. Or working a specific job.
I guess what I’m saying is sometimes you have to step and smell the roses.
And that’s exactly what I did today. I had the best Saturday ever! But I’ll fill you in tomorrow. I’m logging off to enjoy the rest of my happy day. :)
