I saw this pop up on my Pinterest over the weekend and the timing couldn’t have been better. I was really hoping for one opportunity to work out and found out Friday that as a result of some circumstances that I can’t control (which can sometimes make things feel all the more frustrating), it wouldn’t. It was really upsetting and I felt a bit low over the weekend, but if the past 3-4 years have taught me anything, it’s that oftentimes these closing doors do in fact lead to opening (yes) windows.
I’m not happy-go-lucky by nature and have to bust my ass to catch my negativity as it pops up and replace it with positivity. Having said that, I really believe that we have more power in making our choices than we’re aware of – whether you’re a pessimist looking to change or a night owl who needs to switch up your circadian rhythm, even the things that are “hard-wired” in us can be changed. As much as I’ve felt tempted to give into negativity about this situation past this weekend, I gave myself an expiration date on negativity and today is a blank slate, i.e. the perfect opportunity to tap back into my momentum, draw up some new plans and get going again.
Anyway, sorry for the long-winded spiel – I’m a big believer in holding yourself accountable for your intentions/goals/resolutions by making them public, so thank you in advance for your virtual hand-holding!
On a far more joyful note, poring over these outfit snaps could not make me happier because they were snapped at my cabin last week, and it’s hard not to feel cheery there. It’s definitely one of my happy places (along with Maui, Granville Island and the Distillery District in TO). Nothing is as therapeutic as being near the ocean, so even when I go to the cabin and do virtually nothing but watch the wildlife go by (this time we saw orcas, sea lions, seals, eagles and deer…oh my!), I always feel so rejuvenated and relaxed by the time I leave.
Hope you all had a happy weekend and that your week’s off to a great start!
