just monkeying around
on saturday, we met up for brunch with our friends jeff and michelle. on the way out, we spotted a nearby playground. our vodka-sloshed brains thought it was a great idea to go over and check it out.
honestly, there is something that's just great about being on a playground... or anything having to do with feeling like a kid again.
myself and most people i know are bogged down with bullshit. jobs they hate. unemployment. immense college loans. creative unfulfillment. responsibilities, bills, worries, etc.
even if you can't get away from the situations, i think it's important to take regular breaks from the feelings that come with them. maybe even to remember a simpler time...
we hear it every single day, every moment of our lives. the world tells us explicitly and implicitly "grow up. stand up straight. act like an adult." and certainly we do need that... to a point.
i personally think we also need to remember how to be silly and free. ESPECIALLY in such stressful times. it's a balance...
wherever you are in your day today, take a moment to remember a time when you were happy and carefree. (perhaps that's where you're at anyway... if so, you're lucky!!)
know that life always changes, for better and for worse. and it can be that way again.
off to yoga!
(outfit deets tomorrow! xo)
