Breathe in, breathe out.

Thursday, June 6, 2013


This girl has been running on fumes. Every night this week has brought an obligation, meeting, or activity. Bedtime has been postponed. I started my CrossFit Foundations course on Monday night, so my body has been a bit tuckered out. Instead of finding moments to reboot, I've been sucking down coffee like it's my lifeblood... which then keeps sleep at bay. It's a viscous cycle, no?

Yesterday afternoon, after a day spent desperately trying to keep my eyes open and my mind attentive, I dropped Kiddo off at swim lessons and headed to CrossFit. I parked my car in the shade, set the alarm on my phone, and slept. A half hour later I woke up refreshed and ready to tackle my workout.

When I got home, I left my laptop in the trunk of my car. Instead of checking emails and cluttering my freshly-cleared brain, I got in the hot tub. As I settled my sore muscles, the trees started to glitter. Our property was alive with fireflies. Had I googled, blogged, shopped, and surfed instead of taking a moment to relax, I would have missed a rare and beautiful evening. 

Here's to taking moments of solitude... especially when you need them most.

  2. Relaxing moments in the bath are the best! I'm about the head there now.
