Keeping Up With The Chaos

After devouring a BBQ brisket sandwich as large as my face and now kicking my feet up with some guilty pleasure television it's hard to say that I feel comfortable. 

Am I alone in feeling intensely guilty for taking a few hours in a day to relax? Though I am pushing harder to make photography my main focus in life, I still work a full time job and nanny on the side of both. Every free space of my day feels like it's wasted. Like I could be using it to accomplish something greater and I can't seem to shake that. 

"The hurrier I go, the behinder I get." A mantra hanging in the kitchen of my preschool that tries to remind me to slow down, take a deep breath, and focus on what really matters. Does it work? Not usually but, after the hospital stays and ER visits of this last month, I'm willing to give it a try. 

Every Friday, from this month out, I will be taking the day off from everything and spending time, soaking up the peace and quiet, with my Hubby. Hopefully, this little tidbit of time will help bring balance back to the galaxy! 

On that note, I truly am ecstatic to continue through this year! It has been amazing thus far and it's only going up from here! Thank you, everyone. I wouldn't be where I am without you. :)
