taking rest is time well spent

on

“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
― Maya Angelou

ahhhh, we all need that time away to reset.

i  took this weekend to explore how i present i could get when i put my phone away and hot damn! it felt great. putting my phone away (mostly just staying off of social media), allowed me to just enjoy my family. some practice time. some coffee with friends. i even got to sneak off and play at where i hope to get married 😉 unplugging gave me space to have family tickle wars, to be kind without seeking recognition. to just enjoy each day with out thinking of how to record it.

lately we all have been overloaded with articles and a need to act, but it is also important to take time and look around you. to see the beauty. to laugh until you cry. to treat a bunch of strangers to coffee (and supporting the ACLU). to make change by also living your life. this weekend was a nice reminder that:

living, loving, and taking time to reset is always a good idea.

laughter is the best medicine.

extra snuggles are always worth running late.

being nice to everyone is a great way to remember all the nice things that have happened for you.

it’s ok to know what to do or have all the answers. just take it moment by moment.

i hope y’all had a great weekend! and that you are feeling fierce for this week ahead.

xo,

liz
