This week has been a bit of a downer for everyone, it seems. There are definitely times I try to avoid the news altogether in an effort to stay positive but itâ€™s also good to be aware and thereâ€™s just so much negativity and sadness in the world right now. We’re all feeling it…so I’m starting small. Making more eye contact. Chatting a little longer with the people I meet. Smiling more. The little things. The most important thing you can do is to show the people around you that you care.
I flew home from Miami on Monday and thereâ€™s always that feeling of transitioning back from a fantasy world where days are full of exploration and discovery versus the usual routine of work, errands and responsibilities. I feel like it always takes a solid week to click back into reality fully. I’m always thankful for new experiences but the post-vacation blues are real.
On cross-country flights, I tend to catch something but I thought Iâ€™d escaped it this time around â€” until a sore throat turned into a full-blown cold Tuesday night. With two full days in bed now behind me, I feel somewhat human again. Missing a few extra days of work wasn’t ideal but sometimes those moments that force us to slow down are needed and totally necessary.
Anyway, I hope you have a relaxing weekend ahead! Iâ€™m going to be playing catch-up in the studio and working on some fresh blog content but it’s totally worth it in exchange for all those magical Miami memories.
Have a good one, friends! xo
