After weeks of traveling, work, play, and weddings, I am home (and GOSH does it feel good). Traveling is fun, but there is NOTHING like your own bed and your own pillow. When I come home from a trip, I always say I need another vacation just to get my life back together. Like a day for laundry, a day for cleaning house, and a day to decompress. Instead of planning accordingly and giving myself time to relax, I always seem to land at 10pm and get home just in time to pass out. But enough about that and on to my point.
Do you ever have those days where you feel like life is just trying to teach you a lesson, or show you something? Today was one of those days for me, and it couldn’t have been a more clear picture. To set the scene, today was super packed day. Work, unpacking, packing, cooking, a million billion things from start to finish. Long story short, no time for anything off agenda. (Note, that always seems to be when things pop up)… Like the time I got a ticket on my way home from the gym, trying to race home to shower and get to work. ANYWAYS, we won’t talk about that. So today, though it wasn’t a big deal, we went out of our way to take someone home from the airport, and I mean like 40 minutes out of the way. And while at first I wanted to huff and puff I realized that sometimes doing the right thing might not be convenient, but it’s still the right thing to do. It reminded me of something my parents used to tell us as kids, “The right thing isn’t always fun, and the fun thing isn’t always right”. Bingo.
The point to this is none other than sometimes I could benefit from slowing down (quite) a bit, and taking the time to do more for other people before getting SO caught up in my own little world.
In other news, I got to finally meet my sweet baby niece. She CLEARLY loved Auntie Kenz. Whoops, she was hangry, she takes after me 😉
