Confession… I didn’t get out of bed this morning. I essentially took a personal morning. Not planned. No particular reason… Just decided to take the morning off. I dozed and slept and scrolled through Twitter, but other than getting up to feed and walk Teddy, I didn’t rush off to start my to-do list. It was kind of amazing. I felt a little guilty and a little anxious about not doing a few things I needed to get done, but I reminded myself that everything would come together and I should just relax a bit. (Plus, I’m going to DryBar this afternoon for the event at Jack Rogers!
This week has been one of those “Oh, this is what being an adult must feel like” weeks. Corporate taxes = filed. Finally signed a contract that (… no joke…) has been in the works for thirteen months. Started working on an exciting new project with hours of Skype meetings. Basically, my accountants and lawyers are on speed dial. Early morning walks with Teddy. Had a spontaneous dinner with a friend. Lots of special time with special people. Got my inbox down to 8 emails at one point. Marginally ahead on the to-do list.
Even though I felt like all of these things were extremely important and serious, I have been adopting an attitude of not taking things so seriously. Sometimes I self-sabotage by being so uptight and not just going with the flow and being positive about the situations. The positive vibes have been flowing and I’m actually (truly) enjoying myself in the process. It’s a pretty amazing feeling!
Speaking of being light-hearted and not taking things so seriously, I’m obsessed, 100% obsessed with these wicker bags from Kate Spade. The personalities of these little guys are just the most fun!
While one of the totes or satchels might be more versatile, I’m totally in love with the car. Growing up, my dad had a bug and we lovingly called it “The Funny Car” so I feel like that bag needs to find a way into my life somehow. At the very least, it’s such a perfect conversation starter 😉
Do you ever think you take yourself too seriously? How do you keep things fun and light-hearted?
