Happy Monday evening!
We had an awesome weekend in Durham, NC visiting my best friend and her boyfriend. They live in a great area and I LOVED exploring their new city. It is definitely one my favorite trips I’ve taken and I can’t wait to go back. I already miss my best!
Chris and I got home laaate last night and stayed up even later watching 24. Today, I gave myself a rare day to kind of go with the flow and do whatever I wanted to do. Anyone that knows me knows that days that like happen very rarely. I try to work towards becoming the person I want to be … some days there are big steps and some there are little steps. Today felt like a “big step” day, keeping my worries and bay and enjoying this really fantastic life that we’re fortunate enough to have. I don’t know if anyone else struggles with that, but I am consciously trying to change my negative thoughts into positive ones. Or at least get the negative ones outta there.
We stayed in bed late, watched even more 24, ran to Target for an adapter for my new iPhone (!) and spent rest of the day relaxing. I had a little coffee-filled afternoon with my neighbor and played with cars with her boys. I read on my porch and worked on some craft projects. I ran to some thrift shops and found some great treasures. Other than almost getting stuck between two crazy fighting people at TJ Maxx, it was a stellar day. I wrapped it up with a homemade vodka sauce, a Target run with my sisterneighbor, and The Voice.
I am always so worried about what is coming next. The hunt for a job is a tough one and 7 months in I’m feeling a little worried, a little scared. Things are kind of up in the air for Chris and me in a lot of ways. But, I decided that for today, all those worries could wait. They will still be there tomorrow and one day of just fun … well, I think it’s allowed.
Days like today are easy to be grateful for. I think they make you stronger for the ones that are harder to find the silver lining. We all deserve a little rest.
Have a wonderful week, y’all.
