The past few weekends have been jam packed with trips, a baby shower and birthday celebrations, so I was quite pleased to have absolutely no plans this past weekend. Sometimes I just like to be by myself and reflect. I lounged around on Saturday, went shopping for 5 hours (for me this is therapeutic) and read by the pool for a few hours on Sunday. I ended the weekend by seeing a movie with the BF, we saw Pitch Perfect and let me just tell you, funniest movie I’ve seen in a while. Even the BF was laughing hysterically!
On the topic of reflection, I came across this image last week on Pinterest and cannot stop looking at it. The solitude and courage the image depicts really resonated with me. I spent a bulk of my time thinking about where I am now and where I would like to be. Setting life goals for myself of where I’d physically and emotionally like to be has always worked for me, because the two always seem to work hand in hand. If the energy is no good, you can’t expect to be thriving in your career, and to me you have to have courage to face your emotions head on and break through what is stopping you from reaching your dreams. For me, sitting in the peace of me, myself and I is always the best way to force myself to get real and be honest, and figure out what is standing in my way. I feel like I did that this weekend, and now as the season finally starts to change, I am ready to change as well.
