Since being back to work I haven’t had many relaxing evenings or much solitude.
The rush of dinner, bath, story, and then bed leaves me exhausted after a long day and the last thing I want to do is appreciate nature, scrapbook, or organize my daughter’s birthday photos from the beginning of the month.
But then there was today.
Beautiful today. It’s warm spring air swept me up and out of my winter blues. I danced in its heat the whole way home, my window down, hand in the breeze, and hair flowing recklessly in the fresh air.
I was renewed.
I began to think of all of the tasks I take on. All of the things I expect of myself that I end up not having time for. The disappointment I ultimately have when they aren’t completed.
I need to start utilizing resources. .
Shutterfly is one of those great resources I don’t use nearly enough! They offer photo books for all of my memories and will save my hands from all of those paper cuts, in hind sight I should have done the Birthday Invitations there too.
This spring I am focusing on relaxing, asking for help, not doing it all myself.
What are you doing to feel renewed?
I was compensated for this post with one free 8X8 photo book.
