Relaxing Saturday

It’s amazing what a difference a week can make. Last weekend I was feeling drained and overwhelmed, unable to think clearly. This week… well, I feel like I’m really able to just relax. And oh how nice that is!

Maybe having a more productive yet less busy week has something to do with my mental state. Actually, I’m sure of it. It’s so nice to have a break to just chill at home without anything weighing on me or hanging over my head. Sure, I have tasks I could do, but nothing I absolutely have to do.

So I’m spending the day doing some writing, watching tv, just hanging out in pjs on the couch. Maybe in a bit I’ll have some tea or make some cookies. Baking is always good and I haven’t had the chance to do that in a while.

What are you up to this weekend?

Breathe In The Blank

My mind is blank. I keep searching for words to say, but they never seem to come. It’s like my mind is trapped behind a wall that I can’t access. I look for the door, but if one exists, I do not know how to find it.

I’ve been caught up in busyness and distraction. I definitely need to find more balance in my life, it seems like without it I just drift and get trampled when things catch up with me.

It’s funny how differently people can react. When I get overwhelmed, I tend to just shut down. I think this could be the HSP part of me, or maybe it’s just my introversion in general. Some withdraw, some create, some need comfort and reassurance from others, some need space alone to process.

A busy week ends with a busy weekend. I need to take a moment to slow down, catch my breath, and just breathe.

Do you find it difficult to concentrate after a lot of busyness and social interaction? What are some of your favorite ways to recover from a busy week?

New Month, New Chapters

I love the beginning of a new month. Blank pages and a clean start. I sat last night making my June goals and preparing my bullet journal for the month ahead, and it just filled me with such a freeing feeling.

Each day is something new. Each day we choose the life that we’re creating. It’s no longer about the mistakes behind us, our falls and our struggles, but rather looking ahead to the life that could be, the life that still remains yet to be written.

Isn’t it amazing how one day turns to another? How one month, and one season, gives way for another to take its place. Each one with it’s own story, lessons, and purpose. Oh what lives we could lead if only we understood potential!

One goal I have this month is to be more intentional about how I spend my time. I’ve been quite terrible about that lately, spending far too much time on things I don’t want to be doing, and very little on things I actually enjoy. I want to embrace my life for all that it could be and all that God wants to do in me. I don’t want to hold on to my limitations or my fears, instead, I want to trust God’s grace, that He is, and always will be faithful.

I want fearless hope as I turn the page to a new chapter and a better tomorrow.
