Sometimes I forget to relax and enjoy the little things.
Unfortunately that is the truth of the matter.
Sometimes I become so absorbed in my work.
Sometimes it’ll be for hours on end just thinking about the one hundred and one things that I have to do for the day. Thus, forgetting to stop and smell the flowers every once in awhile.
I forget that I only have this one life to share with my family and friends, and I need to take advantage of these precious moments whenever possible.
With that being said, this past Tuesday Mike and I decided to take a half day and go to the beach before Ava starts Pre-K full-time.
SIDE NOTE: Can you believe she’s going to be five next month?!
This little munchkin of ours is such a fish! She is the ultimate water bug, and I just love seeing how much she enjoys the sand, water, and sun.
To the Beach We Shall Go
I’ve recently come to the realization (more like a total “duh” moment!) how much I do not want to miss out on this little one’s life experiences or adventures, and I do believe that there needs to be some changes within my own life.
Changes how I pursue my life dreams, changes how I run my business, the hours I keep, and what makes me truly happy (aka. friends, family, etc).
I know I’m being extremely vague, but to be honest, I’m not sure how to fix this issue right now. Not to mention, I have a hard time expressing myself in times of distress.
I feel like I’m just being a whiner or even a Negative Nancy, and would rather just bottle it all up rather than divulge my sorrows.
The last thing I would ever want to do is bring someone else’s day down. I want to be happy–dag it!
And while I’m being honest, I haven’t exactly been feeling like myself in quite a few months. However, on the other side of the coin, I truly believe that everything happens for a reason.
For the longest time I was feeling like a failure. There are many aspects of this business that have not be working out over these past four years that Mike and I have been chugging along, but I am a firm believer that you can overcome the mass majority of obstacles with perseverance and determination.
However, I’ve learned that sometimes you just have to let it go.
FUNNY NOTE: Why wouldn’t you want to give Elsa a balloon? Answer: Because she’ll let it gooooo, let it gooooooo. 😉
I’m not saying I’m going to give up altogether, but in the very near future I will be letting go of a few components that I no longer enjoy doing.
Don’t worry, I’m going to keep you in the loop throughout the whole process 🙂
