I’m not going to lie – this week was a bit of a doozie. After two entire weeks off to do absolutely nothing (seriously – I was in my PJs for 5 days straight at one point) I thought I’d be ready to jump back in with both feet. And while, mentally, the break was exactly what I needed to jumpstart my creativity and help me feel re-inspired, physically I still feel a little spent. The burnout, you guys, is real.
Last year was incredible in so many ways, And I will be forever grateful for every last second. But it was a bit of a shit show (pardon my French) the whole way through. Looking back, it felt like a marathon – one that I was never really on top of, and always trying to play catch up on. I truly didn’t realize the impact it had on my life until I actually stopped. Completely. It wasn’t until a few days into our vacation that I realized just how exhausted I actually was. And I’ve been struggling hard to get back to it, for fear of more of the same.
With a wedding to finish planning this year, a handful of exciting travel plans, and some really beautiful upcoming client projects, I’m incredibly excited about what’s on the horizon, and absolutely do not want to rush through a thing. So with that in mind, I’ve decided that my sole mission this year is to respect time. To slow down, to savour, to honour, and to hold space for quiet and peace. To be much (much) kinder to myself in doing so. This year is going to be filled with a whole lot more fun – a whole lot more lasting memories, and I’d love for you all to join me. 2018 is going to be a good one! I can feel it already.
