H&M Trouser Shorts
I've you haven't figured it out from the title of this post, lately I've been feeling like I don't have enough time to do everything that I want to do and have this feeling of being burnt out that I just can't shake off. I think part of it is that I've been trying to fit in all these things that I love into my schedule--such as running, reading, blogging, crafting, writing, meditation, etc.--but I haven't given myself enough time to rest. I need to work on being okay with not achieving everything on my to do list, realizing that I can't do everything at the same time, and giving myself a break every once in a while. Please excuse me if this sounds repetitive from previous posts, but this is something that I constantly need to remind myself to do, especially since I often find myself in a similar state of being.
Something that really helped me somewhat shake off the feeling of being overwhelmed was getting out of the house most of the day Saturday. Doing that got me away from my laptop and gave me a break from working on this space; I also made an effort to not be glued to my phone while I was out and about. I really love social media and this blog, but sometimes I think focusing too much of my time on those things prevents me from living in the moment. Sometimes it's nice to disconnect and not feel the pressure to find some special highlight to share with the world through Instagram or Facebook.
Other than me struggling to find time to recharge, it was a very good weekend, even if it was too short. As I mentioned before, I was out of the house most of Saturday and spent some time in Downtown L.A., attended an event at my old workplace, and then ended the night by going out for beers and pizza with my sister Ale. It also cooled down and drizzled a bit over the weekend, and the weather made it easier for me to take things slow; I kind of hope the rain sticks around for a few more days so that I can get the hang of this new, much slower pace.
