First thing on our weekend to-do's? SLOW DOWN 💆🏼✨ // Way back in January, we also made this one of our new year's resolutions! Though the last few months have been crazy, we're still doing our best to a create a balance between hustle and chill. 👩🏻💻🛋📵
As I reflect on my busy and fruitful week I am reminded to slow down. Yesterday morning I dropped off my Kinder boy to return home and do a million things before heading out the door to have lunch with Magda. The key was in the security door and I stopped to take a breath to calm my state of overwhelm. Looking down at my door mat I saw this exquisite rusty coloured leaf that resembles angel wings. My darling Dad is one of my angels and loved his garden and leaves are always my sign from him. In that very moment I remembered him saying "no rushin". Slow down. No need for hurry. I continued to open the door and started on my to-do list. My laptop was as slow as a wet week and the printer clearly wasn't talking to it. It all didn't matter. I did what I could. So when you see your own "slow down" signs or angel messages - take notice #leaf#angel#signs#slowdown#passion#photography#business#suemcveighphotography
This is more than a page of words. They are words describing the busyness of life. They are words that the world values like money and promotions. However, if you look closely, there are words that say things like Rest and be still which create a flower in the midst of chaos.
This represents the fact that We become so caught up in trying to catch up that we forget to stop and smell the roses. We become stuck in routine and become blind to little things.
I am challenging you to stop. To slow down. To take time to appreciate the beauty around you. To not just scroll through a post, but to think it through.
To see if you did stop mindlessly scrolling and actually read, I am challenging you to not like this post.
Day when we wear our pjs all day, watch movies, play games, and take baths just to put on clean pjs right before bed, these are my favorite mama days.
Enjoy these days instead of rushing through them. They go so quickly. #wedonthavetobesobusy#slowdown
I just saw this quote by @elizabeth_rider as I just got home from a yoga session that has completely restored and recharged me. It got me thinking how even though I coach people in calming down and taking back the overwhelm from our busy, I have let my self care slip of late. But today instead of taking my daughter to netball, I hand balled that to my hubby (he can enjoy the quality time with her!) and plugged in the charger on me...how about you? What will you do to recharge today? #recharged#recharge#slowdown#yoga#healthylife#healthcoach#selfcare
Hoping to catch up on some ZZZzzzzzz's over the weekend. It seems as though life is already going full speed and then it somehow finds a way to go oven faster without your consent. That's one of the reasons why I find it so important to make sure your home is designed in a calm, soothing, and peaceful way. A place to rest. A place to refresh. A place to call home💙 #bedroom#interiordesign#home#homedecor#restup#slowdown#takeaminute#refresh#rest#relax
