Feeling Reflective

Although this is a post I would usually share on my lifestyle blog, I thought I'd make an exception and put up a non-beauty post today. Over the long weekend I had the opportunity to go with Alex's family down to Virginia for Thanksgiving. We spent four days hiking, wine tasting, and spending time with everyone. It was a great trip that had me getting pretty reflective by the end of it.

I'm a very busy person by nature. I love filling my calendar up with things to do and events to attend. Blogging takes up a lot of my free time along with my Etsy shop. I love these hobbies so incredibly much, but I worry sometimes that I spend too much time on certain things and not enough time on others. 

While I was in Virginia I didn't have internet and had spotty cell reception. Which meant I spent my days not focused on the next post or creating new products for my shop, but with relaxation and spending time with people that are important to me. It was a weird feeling, but I liked how it felt to take a break which I rarely do.

I'm not sure what this means in the grand scheme of things. Maybe I just need to take a couple days off every now and again and not be so strict to schedules. I'm not sure, but what I do know was that the trip to Virginia was a welcome one and I'm excited for the holiday season!

What did you do for Thanksgiving? Do you find that you're a busy beaver like myself and need to be more or less forced into taking a break?

  1. I think it's always good to step back and not be so switched on to the internet, but it's so hard to do. I think I would have to be in your situation and actually be "forced" to go without.
