Working on slowing down.
Slowing me down, not the business. Let’s be clear. Haha.
First we get Mother’s day, then Memorial Day, Fathers Day and BAM! We arrive at the 4th of July and summer is in full force. How does it all fly by so fast?
(And don’t forget all the Mother’s Day / Father’s Day portrait sessions happening. Will I be seeing you this year? I hope so!!!)
And this happens every year? Faster and faster? Whew, I admit, I’m tired just typing that.
Time for a break.
For me, the only way to take a break is to travel. Its both the luxury and curse of the self-employed. Every minute at home also feels like being at work.
I’ve been working a bit on slowing down this year. A lot less blogging, less random stuff, less drama. Its definitely is leaving more room for ME. And after the whirlwind of getting pregnant and caring for a baby (she’s 2.5 yrs now!) it is time I had more room for me!
I started this year with a retreat with some San Diego Photographer friends in Yucca Valley. You can read about that trip HERE. That trip reminded me of many things. It reminded me to find more calm in my life. It reminded me of the power of ME time. Of good girl-friends. Cheap wine. Late nights….
Next, we have a family vacation in Ensenada. 4 days poolside. Sipping on a Tecate and teaching our daughter to float. It sounds like heaven.
How do you make room for YOU my dear friends?
