In My Element

Recently there's been a lot of change happening in my life - For the past several years I have been in this constant state of trying to figure out what the heck I want to do with my career(s) and well, I'm starting to feel like maybe, just maybe I might be on the right track to figuring it all out. While it's all very exciting, it also comes with a whole lot of emotion, confusion, and overall exhaustion. When my brain goes into overdrive it typically wants to do one thing and one thing only, shut the heck up. Slow down, stop thinking [still working on that one], sit back and chill out.

I went into last weekend with all of these thoughts and feelings of anxiousness because change sometimes does that to me and knew that it was time to unwind and do my best to forget about decisions vs wants vs needs vs logic vs desires vs all of that fun adult stuff we get to deal with. Fortunately, I was able to find my escape and of course, it was waterside with a cold one in my hand. There's just something about boats and beer that instantly evokes a carefree attitude in me and heck, I'm all for those types of evictions.

Shawn, Maggie and I were able to head out together, not talk about anything work related but rather just jam out to some old school Ja Rule, some current Justin Bieber and the ever so wonderful Chris Stapleton and forget about all the other "stuff" going on. It was such a much needed moment of simply enjoying the moment and not getting so wrapped up into the future. I'm so fortunate to have a place to escape right in my backyard. Sure the scenery may be the same but the beauty never ceases to amaze me..especially after two cocktails and some newly formed tan lines ;)

Thank goodness for weekends, amen?

On that note, I'm off to hopefully find my element in front of a TV screen and workout DVD. For some reason it seems very unlikely that I will feel as content and happy as I did out on the boat. Wish me luck. Or just come pick me up off the ground in an hour, that would help too.

ps. You may recall those bright blue bottles you are seeing in the background when I mentioned them for the first time here. Well guess what friends, we are still turning to RESQWATER to stay hydrated while we dehydrate and exciting news! They are currently offering a 20% off stock up sale with the code yellow20 until June 20th so make sure you snatch up enough for all summer long! This doesn't happen often so take advantage drinking friends ;) Click here to supply your next party! We took these to our friends house last weekend and a few may have snuck in a few chugs before calling it a night.

  1. Got these for us girls last weekend when heading to Miranda Friday night! Worked like a champ for me! Not so much for them, but I don't think they drank it properly :) LOVE IT, will definitely be buying more!

  2. You really can not go wrong with old school Ja Rule!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
