Going to PLNK is probably one of the best things I've done for my physical and mental health. These classes have become like therapy for me and I look forward to them all day. I'm able to completely shut off, stop thinking, and dedicate my mind to myself and the 50 minutes I'm here. Life in general is pretty fast-paced right now, and it's unbelievably satisfying to move slowly, with such intention, focus and dedication. 🖤🖤🖤🖤
As I enter the three month period before the wedding I find myself feeling more and more overwhelmed with the things I have to complete and make decisions on. So much of it is contingent on other people too which means trying to find a way to compromise (not easy for me!) Really trying to stop and live moment to moment and move through this process instead of breeze through it. Someone once told me that I'll look back on this with envy 🤷🏽♀️Anyway, this pic reminds me of Puerto Rico so maybe I just need a vacation 🌴
Yesterday was super cool. I went for a long walk, made a somewhat last minute decision to take a Sunday @plnkstl class (so glad I did), @nokurfewnate and I grabbed brunch at Piper Palm House with our parents to taste some food for our wedding, then we made drinks and watched shows and laughed and laid in bed taking weird selfies. Can't wait till next Sunday. 🌤
Every now and then I think about my time in Chicago. What it did for me, how it shaped me, and how I came to rely on the independence that it provided me. What isn't easy to relive is the sadness I felt being away from Nate. Luckily I'm a part of a writing club that has managed to pull it out of me in a way that I can appreciate. I've shared a special writing sample on my time in Chicago and a personal moment I had with Nate on my blog. Link in my profile if you want to check it out. ✌🏼
I spend most mornings walking through my neighborhood and even though the path seldom changes I always see something I haven't seen before. Or maybe it's the same but the light has changed. Or maybe it's just the day or me.
