I'm in. Monday | #witl2016

I was set to begin my Week in the Life project led by Ali Edwards but then Monday happened.

"Today looks a little like this.  

It was what I call a down day.  Nothing makes sense.  Nothing is black and white.  It’s definitely a “redo day.”  And it wasn’t because I put my clothes on backwards or dropped my breakfast on the floor, it was just how I felt when I hopped out of bed.  I tried to work through what I was feeling in the morning and I couldn’t make sense of it all. Reluctantly, I went to the grocery store to get   enough food to make a ham sandwich and BBQ in the evening.  This was not how I wanted my #weekinthelife to begin. I decided I’d scrap it. I thought about my intention of this project - this is the reality.  This is life.  And everyone feels this way from time to time. I feel blessed that my down days are few and far between but I’ll embrace them for now and learn from them.  What did I learn? To get on my feet. To take a walk. To smile with my kids. To live. 

Let’s start over, shall we?"

I didn't take many pictures on Monday but nobody really cares except me.  I am realizing that I don't even care that much.

For me, my intention and my reason why for this project is reflection. This is something I've done a lot of lately.  I am trying to align my goals and my responsibilities to find joy and to find what it is that I want to accomplish while I am on this great Earth. (Good luck to me, right?)

If you are wondering, I went 100% digital in my layouts today. Who knows what tomorrow will bring.

Have a great day! See you tomorrow!
