Lazy Sunday

Today has been a great Sunday thus far! I went to a fancy breakfast at Panera with my love, I took some time for self care with a wonderful face mask, and we went to Lowe’s to get new bulbs. We replaced a total of 4 light bulbs together today! It’s really wonder we haven’t been living completely in the dark, although I suppose that’s what happens when you have multiple light bulbs in one place. I also binge watched half of the new season of A Series of Unfortunate Events, and now I am binge watchting Younger. I have done some planning for my honeymoon, and I have read some of my current read: The Stranger Beside Me.

I just wanted to check in today because it’s gloomy outside (snowing on April 8!) and because I always want to write more- but I often find myself unsure of what to say. I have realized that I don’t always need to write a book review, recipe review, or news review. I don’t always need to provide my thoughts and opinions on a current event. I just need to come in and tell you what’s going on. What’s going on is that I am human, just like the rest of us. I am disappointed in myself for not doing more of the necessary things, but it is exceptionally freeing to feel fulfilled in my life- which is how I am feeling today.

In order to help others, we must help ourselves.

I haven’t been sleeping well for two weeks; I haven’t been able to officially check anything off my to-do list in almost as long. But I am making progress in my life, and I am taking time for the things that I enjoy. I have amazing friends around me and I have goals that are being chased, and therefore coming closer within reach. I am thankful that I am loved, and therefore, everything is a-okay. Hopefully there will be more reviews and feelings shortly, but until then, take pride in each day.
