I feel like I can finally come up for air after this past week.  For a minute there I was running on fumes. What helps me through hectic times is remembering that nothing lasts for ever. I take it  one hour, one minute, one breath at a time.  

It also helps to have a good perspective.  Don’t get me wrong, my perspective doesn’t make me feel any less tired at the end of the day. It doesn’t make me excited to have to take off my shoes and trudge across icky airport floors, or make me leap with joy at the thought of spending an entire weekend working on articulating my spine. It just means that I choose to be grateful for the opportunities that I have been afforded, and grateful that I made it to the end of day.


Thank you for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!

    Perspective… and then some! I wanted to get upset with my life today, and then I saw a news report about one of the Boston blast survivors who lost both legs. That checked my attitude REAL fast! Love this look! I've been on the hunt for a sleek blazer and I'm feeling that one. Those are payless shoes for real?! They are stepping up their game!

      Banana Republic has some good blazers. I've had mine for quite some time. Yes, girl Payless is doing big tings :)
