You can do anything but not everything.
I can’t believe how these little words manage to perfectly describe my life as of lately. There used to be a time when I wanted to do it all, and I remember managing just fine, but maybe that’s because I wasn’t doing much, or perhaps I was doing way less. These days time’s a struggle. And looking around me, I notice I’m not the only one finding it slip thought my fingers.
And it took me a while to realize and accept that you just can’t do it all, at least I can’t, and that’s perfectly fine. I used to hate not having time to take pictures or post on the blog, I used to work while constantly thinking about what other activities I could have done in that same amount of time, I used to read, or watch a movie, not fully enjoying them because I was already planning my activities ahead. And not living in the moment, is the worst way to punish yourself.
Now, I take it all as it is. I find that I am lucky enough to have a job that I love, a family that I adore, friends that make every moment count, a blog that speaks of my soul, and many other little activities to fill my life in the most beautiful way possible. So, if I can’t be everywhere, doing everything, I’m going to at least enjoy every little moment in between.
That’s why now I am fully present while cooking, working, cleaning the house, shopping for groceries, clearing my mind as I go. I am also loving every second spent with my family, with my husband and Puss, with the girls sipping our coffees, every second spent reading, writing, photographing, walking or Pinterest-ing, because this is my life and I decided to live it.
One more day until the weekend! Here’s to a great one, wonderful people! Hugs, XO
