wow! where to begin, i have so much to share, but i wanted to start here. the last 7 weeks have been incredible, so many memories made, places seen, adventures had and stories to tell. living out of a suitcase for 6 weeks was exhilarating and exhausting all at once, but i loved every single second of it. (and i am also happy to be home now and NOT living out of a suitcase.. haha!) still can’t believe that it’s all over and we’re back at home. reality hit hard when my plane landed on thursday.
i’m sure as many of you know the feelings of “post-vacation depression”. scott and i were talking about it the other day and it seems that post CONFERENCE depression is also a real thing, haha! (anyone else ever feel this way?!?). i remember feeling heavy with my head in the clouds last year after united and wppi, however the last few weeks have been so incredible that this year it almost feels more like it is just too much joy to take in all at once. feelings of motivation and so much excitement that it is overwhelming, mixed with happiness and gratefulness and being terrified of the next steps and change. both scott and i have been struggling with this over the last few days, but today as i was driving into town with my windows rolled down, music as loud as it could go and the sun shining on my face i realized that i needed to be living by my own rules. it’s our choice. the way we live and the way we want to see things. the way we use this energy and motivation. we get to choose how we feel and think and exist. we get to write the script.
so even with the thousands of overwhelming ideas and thoughts and dreams i have in my head after such an incredible and life changing 6 weeks of laughter and adventure with great friends, i am choosing to only smile. i am choosing to not let stress or worry ruin a beautiful sunny day, a perfect moment, or a great idea. i get to choose to channel all of this crazy energy for positive and productive change in our life and our hearts and our businesses. there are so many wonderful and exciting things happening right now ~ moving, our new house, business opportunities, personal projects, travel plans, shooting season, and spring which leads to summer (wahoo bikini town!! :)).
this blog was merely a reminder to myself. something to hold me accountable. it’s so easy to fall into feeling overwhelmed when so many things start to happen at once, especially this time of year. so i challenge you to take control. this life is amazing. it’s perfect in every way and exactly how it should be. it is such a gift, we all need to remember to be grateful. it’s your choice how you see it. it’s your choice how you live it. so choose.
