inspiration, gratitude & surprises

27 Jun


Considering this week has been a bit of a blah week. Did you read my post on Tuesday? I am convinced I must be feeling the effects of Mercury Retrograde or something because everything has been a hassle the last few days. Because of this I thought what better time to do an inspiration, gratitude & surprises post, right? Taking stock of the little things always helps me remember to be grateful for this lovely, messy, exhausting & fabulous life. I am looking forward to a very mellow weekend. Tonight we are staying in…my absolute favorite thing to do on a friday night…probably because I am old now. Saturday I plan to continue my “yoga every damn day” challenge with a morning yoga class and at night we are going to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for a movie date night which happened to be one of the things on my summer to do list. We are going to pack a middle eastern picnic, grab a nice bottle of wine and curl up on a blanket in the grass. I could do without the movie we are seeing (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) but you can’t win them all, right? Sunday we have absolutely nothing planned other than a morning surf for Bri and a morning yoga class for me.

what inspired me this week?

my friend Rachel decided to cancel her Facebook account because she was tired of being a slave to it. I immediately thought the idea of canceling my facebook account sounded fabulous too! It gets a bit exhausting comparing yourself to others on a daily basis, you know? Not to mention it can be such a time sucker. Sadly, I’m not saying I was brave enough to cancel mine too but I still think it’s a great idea.

this quote…“Don’t worry about the how. That is up to the universe to determine. The universe lives in endless possibilities while our ego dwells in limited options. Which would you trust?”

what am I grateful for this week?

My husband…always my husband. Not only because he surprises me with flowers but because he’s my best friend and biggest support.

Taline…she knows why

A much-needed pep talk from my friend Melissa

A sense of humor

long morning walks with Frank

sushi dinners with my family

our blooming garden (all due to Brian and his green thumb)

what surprised me this week?

I realized I am turning 32 verrrry soon. How the heck is it almost July 8th?? It’s not only my birthday but it’s this little blogs bday! Happy almost 3rd birthday blog!

I also found my first grey hair this week. Yeah, that was a bad surprise.

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre?! In a cemetery! I could never. You two crack me up. That better be one huuuuuge bottle of wine. XO.

    I have a few gray hairs hidden in my brown mane of hair and I’m a bit younger so have no fear. 🙂 I found one recently and tried to pull it out but for some reason I could not figure out how to pluck it out.

    I’ve meaning to go to morning yoga classes forever. My local Y has some at 6 AM during the week but I’ve always been too lazy to go. It’s so hard to motivate myself to wake up at 5:30 AM.

      Yeah my idea of morning yoga class is 9am. Ha. I’ve tried waking up at 5:30 am to work out as well. NEVER WORKS:)

    When it’s been a while since I’ve touched up my color, I’m always suspicious about a grayish hair that seems to come back, despite plucking it. There are worse things to have happen! Exciting birthday fun coming up!

    “my friend Rachel decided to cancel her Facebook account because she was tired of being a slave to it.” … I did (left FB) about 2 years ago for that very reason/feeling and I don’t miss it at all. I probably log onto Twitter and Instagram more than I would without it! But it just feels like there’s less to keep up without it and that’s a little slice of zen.

    And “ugh” on the gray hairs. I haven’t found one (yet!) but I’m going to be right there with you the day I do!
