time life sea

oh my, have i not been getting enough of this lately. somehow i've got a very full life with a to-do list that never ends and i forgot to rejuvenate. that's not my usual style. i suppose i'm just trying to be sure everything gets done before, well, you know, that due date arrives. but it sure seems like a lot of other things besides just baby-prep are going on. way more than usual, actually. and i am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed. which means it's time to slow down, breathe, and just be.
i'm trying to face it all with a happy heart and a smiling spirit. for the most part that comes naturally to me, as i am optimistic by nature. and ultimately, these are all good things ~ albeit they all require steap learning curves, lots of attention, and all the enthusiasm i can summon. but when i find myself musing about how much calmer & easier things will be after the baby comes {and thinking of that as my excuse to keep on pushing myself through the next task-at-hand}, then i know i've hit a new high of self-imposed delusion. and so i've really got to take a step back and soak up some nothingness. . . . . if even for only a few hours. . . . .with some quality alone time at the ocean.


{i've had these lovely quote-infused images saved for a while & unfortunately can't find who's work they are. if you know, please tell me & i'll happily give proper credit}

Sounds like you know exactly what you need...and it sounds like a wonderful idea. I hope you get the rest and rejuvenation you need and soon.

thanks, tb. sometimes knowing what you need and being able to get it are two different things...but i have been finding some more time to relax lately. and this weekend i'll get to be by the pacific ocean on the roegon coast .... ahhh there's nothing quite like it.

Yes, a balance of alone time and friend and work time is key. Take time for YOU - you'll have precious little of it once the Peach arrives! xoxox
