In case you don't follow me on instagram (which you totes should - my handle is thatsanaffirmative), I posted this up the other day. It was from our sunday night chinese food take out, which I have been craving all the time recently. It was delicious and inspiring!
I had to pull it up again last night to remind myself to keep things in perspective. I was feeling super crabby - overwhelmed with life stuff, annoyed with people for the littlest of reasons, and in a general state of anxiety. I'm not even sure why. I think some of the stuff happening in the news was getting to me, coupled with not enough sleep the night before and the stress you always get right before you travel. Oh yeah, and I'm pregnant so everything is a big deal. There's that.
Anyway, I tried to focus on this image, take a deep breath, and remind myself to get out of my own damn head. What may seem like a big deal today will certainly not be tomorrow. The world will keep spinning. The sun will keep rising and setting. I'm just a tiny, itty bitty piece of a much bigger puzzle, and it's not going to break apart because I felt "off" and my day didn't go exactly as planned.
We can't let ourselves get stuck in our own heads with our own pile of issues!
All we can do is be our best selves every day by being conscious of this beautiful world that we're apart of. The rest will take care of itself.
Well...my packing isn't going to take care of itself. But you know what I mean. :o)
