The busy-ness of the past two months has almost knocked me off my feet. And while yes, I am busy by choice, busy is busy not matter which way you slice it. All you middle twenties gals know the feeling when all your friends are doing things at the same time, and somehow you're privileged enough to be invited to what feels like every.single.one.of.'em.
Due to said busy-ness, I feel as though I've lost perspective, just like my iPhone did when I was trying to snap a picture of 'my two', relaxed and content on a Sunday afternoon, just the way I like to see them. So I'm going to work to renew my focus, because to me it's important.
It's as if we get caught up in all the things 'happening' in our lives, and forget what is actually 'happening'. Every day I take for granted the health and happiness I have in myself and my relationships...something that might seem like a small fortune to most others. I have a job that satisfies me, and though I don't save the world, cure cancer, or seriously change peoples lives, I enjoy it, which is more than 34.7% of employed people can say. If you are impressed by my 'research' on the topic, that number is completely arbitrary, but I gottcha didn't I?
So here's to a fresh cup of hot chocolate in my elephant mug, an awesome weekend with my bestie, and focusing, investing, and giving back to those things that keep me going and give back to me, especially those two in that picture. They are perfect.
