I had so much to get done around the house and today was supposed to be the day that I got these chores done. Today definitely didn’t go as planned. I woke up and went grocery shopping to meal prep for the week. A friend of mine who works there got a new tatoo so I got to see it. It was so creative and I loved it. I do not have any tattoos due to the fact that I’m to much of a wimp, but I would get one if I wasnt scared. When I got home from the grocery store, I still felt pretty tired from not sleeping last night so I took a short nap. When I woke up, I got on the elliptical and worked out for an hour. When I got off of the elliptical I felt very energized. That is when my day really began…

Andrew has been working all weekend so I’ve had the house to myself a lot, which I have really enjoyed. I put on music, which was loud and fun, poured myself a glass of wine and started doing chores on my to-do list that needed to get done. Well, sort of. I found myself not getting anything done because I was really enjoying the moment. I found myself dancing around like I had no cares in the world and I found myself loving every second of it.

The past few days I have felt pretty tense. I havent been able to enjoy much and I havent known what to blog about. I have also been absent-minded. Today, something changed. I wanted to let loose and enjoy my day. I may not have been around my friends but I have enjoyed every second that I danced, sang and drank some wine. I was literally dancing around singing at the top of my lungs. The glass of wine just added to me relaxing a bit. Sometimes you just have to let loose and do whats best for yourself instead of checking off things on a to-do list.

I will get my to-do list done at some point this week, but for now I’m going to enjoy my time by myself. The point of this post is that you have to enjoy life. No matter how much you have to do, sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses.
