I didn’t make New Year’s resolutions this year, which I felt okay with. But when June hit and it seemed as though half the year had just flown by and I was just being tossed around in it like a rag doll I started to feel an itch, and maybe a little lack of purpose? I stumbled across Bleubird and her list of things welcoming summer and thought, that’s just what I need! Maybe it will give me a little direction, a little sense of purpose again. Without going into much detail, I’m mostly DC-bound this year. Not much in terms of vacation or travel on the docket. When I realized that, I also realized I needed to make the most of being here. So here goes…a few reminders, a few affirmations…
Eating / fresh seafood, right out of the Chesapeake Bay. (Good thing I know a guy.)
Drinking / tequila & sodas with a lime.
Practicing / patience.
Mastering / a good habit.
Learning / to go easy on myself. (Still.)
Trying / standup paddleboarding.
Playing / Cards Against Humanity.
Finishing / my to-do lists. (Plural. Always.)
Reading / the huuuuge stack of magazines in my living room. And then the medium-sized stack of unread books next to it.
Remembering / that a night at home is just as good for me as a night out.
Wearing / running clothes more often. I’m definitely back in a running groove.
Cooking / more. Period. Cooking has lost its joy for me recently. (How sad is that?!)
Working / on being more open. (Still.)
Traveling / somewhere. Anywhere.
Wanting / more experiences and memories with my friends.
So, what’s on your list for this summer?
