Everything just seems to be better when you’re on a staycation.
This past week while dogsitting has been full of relaxation, movies, quality friend time, and of course my love, Abby.
And don’t forget, SLEEP.
What is it about getting away from my normal routine that makes me want to cook more (thanks to Heather for inspiring me with her cooking!), walk more, and relax more? I love my apartment, but when I take a step back and look at it, it all makes sense why I’ve always felt a little trapped. I live on the ground floor, middle unit, with I-5 constantly buzzing across the street and the blinds shut for privacy, blocking all light.
It’s been tough reaching that place of ‘zen’ while packing and preparing to move. The stress of wrapping things up at work and trying to knock everything off my to-do list is pretty exhausting. I can’t do too much on my to-do list while I’m dogsitting, so I’m taking full advantage of this time “off.”
I came across a quote that my friend recently sent me and it tickled those zen gears in my brain that I’ve been having trouble reaching lately. Sometimes all it takes is a cuddle with Abby and a profound quote that reminds me that there is so much more to come. Everything is all a part of the process, the good and the stressful.
There are stars you haven’t seen and loves you haven’t loved. There’s light you haven’t felt and sunrises yet to dawn. There are dreams you haven’t dreamt and days you haven’t lived and nights you won’t forget and flowers yet to grow. There is more to you that you have yet to know.
Isn’t life grand??
