love list: re-capping the best of the week, and sharing the love. yum.
what i loved this week:
- this week i love my home. i love how it looks and how it feels. it’s a cocoon of colour and inspiration and i love living here.
my bliss (yoga, knitting + meditation) room
- i love yoga pants and bare feet.
- and of course, fall. i love fall. the trees. the sunlight. the perfect weather.
but really this week i don’t have much of a list and i don’t have any links to share. because this week i am t i r e d.
because something big is changing next week: everything!
i am creating a new routine for myself. as a creative being, i thrive on routine and i thrive on change. ha! but i do believe i have come up with something that supports both of these and will keep me from being so overwhelmed that i get tired.
really, this new idea feels like a breath of fresh air sweeping through my life.
though it’s not really actually my idea. it’s my job. i’ve been working monday-wednesday and it’s not really working as well as it could. so we decided to try something new – working weekday mornings. at first i resisted because i love having free days but the truth is i know i’d be more productive and balanced with fewer free days but more free time each day.
i really do thrive on routine and once one routine is in place i can build other routines into it. like: visiting the river every morning. journaling every day. swimming. meal planning and cooking in advance.
it feels like changing my schedule creates a space for me to really look at everything. like emptying out a closet to clean it out. i can look at everything really carefully and decide whether to put it back in, or to toss it. and i can bring new things in.
so, more than anything this week, i love this.
change and routine. re-arranging my life so i have more nurturing + creativity and less overwhelm.
spread the love!
please go into the comments and share with me what you love this week.
and – what kinds of routines and structures are you creating in your life that support your creativity and nurture your soul?
