There are certain things that I know that I need, that are non-negotiables for me- yet time and time again I find myself putting many of these things on the back burner as life crowds in. And sometimes weekends away are just the thing to reset, reboot and remind myself of all that I had forgotten.
I recently spent the weekend with some of my favorite girls in Boulder, Colorado followed by spending some great time with family. It was an amazing time and a weekend that came at just the right time for all of us for various reasons.
There were basics I needed to be reminded of…
It is fun to get away every once in awhile, to completely change scenery.
Hydration is really important.
Working out keeps me sane.
There is nothing better than laughing with my girls.
I needed to be reminded of how loved I am, and that even the things I think are insurmountable aren’t, and that I am not alone in facing them.
I needed to be in awe again.
I had forgotten how good it felt to be delighted and inspired by the expanse around me.
And how good it was to be delighted by surprises around every corner.
And how much fun it was to capture beauty with my camera.
And how much fun it is to spend time with family, especially when you don’t get a chance to see them as often as you would like.
And sometimes it is just good to not set an alarm clock, to be reminded that there is more to life than what you look at every day, and that there is an adventure around every corner when you are looking for it.
May you seek out beauty every day.
May you remember what it is that you are certain of.
And may you find something to delight you that leaves you in awe.
