I was lying in bed with Annabel last night and she noted I had been in a MOOD yesterday. (She was correct.)
I noted that tomorrow would be a fresh start and she reminded me that actually you can make a fresh start at any moment. Then we started joking about how silly it would be to wait for a new year, decade, millennium to start over.
It was a nice moment. And also, today IS a fresh start.
Things I will try to do today:
♥️ Take my time with things
♥️ Listen well
♥️ Avoid interrupting myself needlessly
♥️ Aim to take intentional restorative breaks
Workout-wise, today is a total rest day which is welcome. Maybe I will take on some gentle yoga . . .
In entirely unrelated news, I ordered this dress. Love the idea of wearing more dresses casually in the hot spring + summer months. The length is tricky but they do have petite sizing so crossing fingers.
Remember my allowance plan? I spent Feb/Mar stocking up on running shoes and the like, but I think I will devote April/May to getting a few pieces for spring. I’m pretty into what Madewell is currently offering plus I will probably get 3 more tees from Marine Layer — their T-shirts are such high quality and they LAST. I also want white or cream colored jeans. And cute sneakers.
(I guess this may take up April – June allowance. Obviously Inflation has hit the stores but I cannot bring myself to raise the allowance bar right now! Maybe 2024.)
Despite my #mood, I did have a bright moment yesterday — I gave a virtual seminar to a group of lawyers and it went (I think) really well!
I called the talk “Best of Best Laid Plans Academy” and gave a very condensed version of the concepts/ideas laid out in BLPA. I would love to do more of this!
