Small things

It's been an interesting month. I found myself uninspired. It was just a slump I know, but nothing frustrates me more than the groundhog daily ways that can overtake my fly by the seat of my pants random ways (aka I love flexibilty and possibilities, and fear the mundane details). I'm a true ENFP as the Myers-Briggs testing indicates.

So, I've been making changes. Small ones, but important ones to help me enjoy new experiences and discover inspiration. In the past month I've:

  • tried (and failed miserably) a juice detox (for 4 hours).
  • resigned from a not a good fit job role.
  • planned a trip home to see family and friends.
  • learned a new recipe and can whip up a poached egg with hollandaise sauce like it's nobody's business.
  • found a figgy pinot noir that I've longed for in New Zealand.
  • took time out to just be. Sit on the deck. Sit with friends. Sit with my love, and just be.
  • learned to enjoy a gluten free diet.
  • enjoyed a weekend roadtrip and can still rock out in car songs and put my my inner 16 year old self to shame (I blame Carly Rae Jepsen and her song Call Me Maybe - p.s. she's Canadian!)
  • looking forward to high tea for my birthday.
  • and have fallen in love with this photo.

Hope you've been finding inspiration in the small things too. Can't wait to catch up on all my fav blogs!
