Thoughts for a Thursday


Yesterday was one of those days. I started a new job on Monday (same company, different role), so I've had orientation & training this whole week. Then I got sick on Tuesday. All day yesterday I was woozy and chilled, and my throat hurt so much...but I couldn't miss training, so I had to suck it up. Then Ben got off work super late (we carpool) and there was a crazy amount of traffic from both the regular commuters and a Mariner's game that had just gotten out. Needless to say, nothing was going right! I had planned to take photos of a fun little project to post today, but by the time we got home it was getting too dark for photos, and I wasn't feeling up to it. Feeling exhausted and a bit discouraged, I checked Instagram and saw the best quote: "you can do anything, but not everything." So I decided to give myself a break, curl up with a cup of tea, and watch some episodes of Psych with Ben (do any of you guys watch that show? We're loving it!). Ever since you guys told me you wanted to see more of my own home and projects, I've tried to post something of my own at least once a week. But I'm not going to hold myself to it this week. Maybe I'll have time to do it tomorrow but I'm not going to stress out about it! One way or another, soon you'll get to see some cute ideas I've been working on.

You can do anything...but not everything

I hope you all are having a good week. If you're feeling wiped out like me, be encouraged--no one can do everything!

And also be encouraged by the fact that tomorrow is Friday :)

    Love this quote and it is so fitting for me the one who wants to take on the world and do it all! Sometimes we over achievers just need to sit back on the couch with a cup of hot tea and do nothing for awhile! Great post. Thank you.
