I've never been very good at balance...


I haven't been blogging much lately. It's kind of a bummer, and I wish I had more to say right now, but I don't... and that's okay. I'm sure I'll have plenty to say again soon. It's a phase that I've been through before and will go through again. :)

Life is great right now, but it's stressful too. Levi and I finally decided this weekend that we need to move to remove some of the stress, and that's pretty overwhelming. Moving is such a pain, and looking for a new home is frustrating to me. I'm the type of person who can't rest until a task is done... and this isn't a task that can be rushed. I'd like to believe that our home is out there somewhere, but I'm not feeling very optimistic right now. See how impatient I am?? We've only been really actively looking for a couple days! Something will come up. And maybe I'll learn a little patience along the way.

Amidst all the stress of life, I'm really trying to focus on stopping and enjoying the moment. I want to be present. I want to give myself time to feel carefree. I want to be there instead of always feeling like I'm rushing ahead to the next milestone or wishing for something else. Have you seen Midnight in Paris yet? Wasn't it amazing?? Didn't it make you want to embrace your life, the one you have right now? Didn't it also make you want to hop on the next plane to Paris...

So that's my life right now. It's a little all over the place. I'm trying to find balance between two worlds that seem very different to me - the world where I'm responsible and stay on top of everything and the world where I let go and just live...

I'm pretty happy that I get to go through it all and find my way with my Levi by my side.

  3. I saw Midnight in Paris and I loved it. I dream and long of traveling in the beautiful city but I know it would still take me a while to get there. And when I do, I know it's all worth it.

    P.S. LOVED Midnight in Paris :) Kiwi and I actually took a quick trip to Paris for his cousin's wedding. It was amazing!

  13. It kinda seems unfair that most of the time we have to go through more stress in order to de-stress. I wish you the best of luck finding your home. It's an important but really frustrating process.
