If We Had A Week Off... We Could Run The World

I am not much of a diary kind of girl and I don't really intend for this blog to be a record of my musings... but I was having a conversation with a few girlfriends recently and something my friend Gracie mentioned has stuck with me...

We were talking about how busy life gets and Gracie said "you know, if we had a week off we could run the world". I know that sometimes, as women we try to multitask and take care of everything and before we know it we are juggling a dozen things at once. I do this all the time. I am starting to transition into a new design position at work, planning a wedding, blogging, making crafts and tutorials, having bridal showers (yay!), getting ready to move into a new house (and already starting to decorate it in my head), working on planning a future with my amazing fiance and making time for dates with him and time for friends and family too. Man what a lifeΒ mouth-full.

Before I know it I am worn out and burned out. So, with that being said... I am going to take life a little slower. I am going to make plans and schedules, yes, but in doing those things I am going to let myself live in the moment and let my calendar do the worrying for me. So when its time to work... I'll work. When its time to play... I'll play. And when its time to rest... I'll rest.

Matthew 6:34

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

Not bad advice, I think I'll take it.
