Time Out

Feb 5, 2014

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.

    This weather is seriously miserable here in the ville! I’m hoping we see more of the 60 degrees days that we had last Saturday!

    Great quote…and oh, so true!

    Definitely going to check out True Detective! I’m a sucker for any crime TV shows.
