enjoy life list
i spent some time today planning content for my art workshop this weekend. there is still a little bit of time to register if you are interested. i am super excited to meet a lovely group of women this sunday. i just can’t wait. the theme of this workshop is how to enjoy life more. this all came up one day when i realized that i was absolutely terrified to start enjoying life again because of fear that it would all be taken away from me. i guess it’s kind of a mindset that was left over from the trauma of my car accident. ever since then, i started project enjoy life in an effort to take more time out to enjoy the smaller moments in life.
anyways, as i was getting ready for this weekend i started thinking that instead of making a to do list, what if we made an enjoy life list for the week? we are always so keen on getting things done but what if we actually made a list of things to do that replenished us? how would that change our day to day life?
i have been scheduling more me time lately. i have been getting together with friends and scheduling in things that i know will bring me life. and guess what? i have been so much happier!!! it’s been so good for me. but i had to start from a place of believing that i deserved those things. i had to stop making excuses for why i couldn’t do those things. i had to stop feeling guilty for taking time for myself. it’s even helped me get more done in my day because i know that i have that time carved out for myself. i am a better mom, wife, artist and business woman because of it. today i went and got coffee and a bagel while preparing for my workshop. it was so lovely!!!
so here is my enjoy life list for the week… a list of things that i am going to do to enjoy life this week. a list of small moments i am giving to myself as a gift because i deserve it. (if you want to make your own enjoy life list on your blog, feel free to share a link in the comments! or simply just share your own list.)
- have tea with a friend tomorrow
- sit outside with the girls as they play, enjoy the sunset and beauty that is colorado.
- enjoy connecting with beautiful women on sunday for my workshop
- carve out a little bit of time this week for making art
- start designing patterns on monday (really excited to do this!)
i think that is a good start for this week only because i have a ton going on getting ready for my workshop. speaking of enjoying life, i just have to share with you the menu for lunch at my workshop. i mean doesn’t this sound absolutely lovely!!! i really wish you could all be there.
