I just thought I'd say hi today you guys. I know that sometimes the blog can feel super design-focused, and I think it's good to just stop in occasionally and say, "Hey! I'm here, behind these posts, sitting at my laptop, being a real person and stuff." I had a really crap-tastic day on Monday. Nothing truly bad happened, especially in comparison to the actual, real life horrific events going on in the world (you are in my heart, Baltimore and Nepal). There was just an accumulation of stresses that had built up without resolution for weeks and created mounting anxiety, and it finally all came crashing down. I just felt so overwhelmed and drained. It had been a long, long time since I'd had a good ugly cry, and it kind of felt good. After I let it out, I told myself to buck up and try to put things in perspective, and remember what was really important. And then, each day of the week started to feel a little better, and by yesterday, I was feeling pretty great. Today I'm good as new. It's Friday, it's the first day of one of my favorite months of the year, my husband comes home from tour Sunday for eleven whole days, and I get to hang out at the park with Essley today. I really do try to be consciously grateful for what I have, and it makes a big difference. Gratitude really is the answer.
Whatever your plans may be for today and for your weekend, I hope you're happy, healthy, and grateful too.
