I had all kinds of ideas for what today’s post would be (most likely a love letter to color to combat the gray abyss outside) but then I realized I have a mountain of crap to get to and a plane to catch in an hour (and it ain’t to anywhere fun – I can promise you that).
I was doing my daily trolling for inspiration on Pinterest, when I saw this quote and I realized that it summed up today (and this week, and this month and my life) in a nutshell. You really can do anything but at some point, there are only so many hours in a day leaving it next to impossible to get everything done. As much as I try to cram it all in on a day to day basis, today just wasn’t going to pan out to be one of those days.
And seeing this, I thought it might be worth sharing with all of you (rather than just taking a day away) because I think it’s something we all need every once in a while. With so many commitments, pressures and opportunities (and opportunities for FOMO) – I feel like we all try and cram 36 hours into a 24 hour day. And as much as I wish I could get just one more hour a day (for that extra hour of sleep!), this year my resolution is to focus on getting a couple big ticket items out of the way every day and not stressing hard core about all the little things that I just didn’t get to. And today, one of those big ticket items wasn’t my colorful collage. I promise it will be on the list for tomorrow though.
Oh and if you’re in Louisville (or anywhere really – the weather is all kinds of mizz all kinds of places) and stuck inside because of the ice, I recommend doing a quick binge watch of True Detective (it’s on HBO). Love that show. Or go make these cookies. Seriously, make them. They’re delicious.
