Life + Lunch :: Productivity + Relaxation
Today, I was able to experience both.
I decided to get shit done at Barnes and Noble this morning. There's just something inspiring about writing inside a bookstore, don't you think? Two hours passed before I couldn't help but look around. I ended up buying three books, one from an author that Shanley recommended to me (The Joy Diet: 10 Daily Practices for a Happier Life by Martha Beck) and two by Max Lucado, a favorite of mine (Facing Your Giants and Traveling Light). I love self-help and inspirational stuff.
Then I walked across the street to Corner Bakery for lunch and more work. It was a gorgeous sixty degrees and sunny today -- perfect soup weather! I got a bowl of lentil. After a few hours there, I stopped at the branch to print some stuff out, then went to Eric's for a quick Mario Kart sesh, and finally headed over to Nail Garden. Pampering was very much needed. I'm home now and ready to get back down to business. Or maybe I'll just sleep.
I'm trying to maintain the work/life/blog balance, as we all are. Some days, like today, it's easy. Other times, it's not -- at all. I'm trying not to put too much pressure on myself and keep my physical/mental health in check. I'm not a full-time blogger, and I shouldn't be expected to have the level of blog that a full-time blogger does; nor is it fair for me to expect that of myself.
I'm going to stop before this becomes a LESSONS post, because I want to save my thoughts for that. But you should know that if you ever feel overwhelmed, you can bring your shit to Barnes and Noble. And then buy yourself a book. Or three. ♥
