What I Wore:Feeling Blue

I've been feeling off. It crept up on me slowly and has lingered long that I expected.

Maybe its the bad news of death of people I knew.

Perhaps its the thunder storm that lasted all of Saturday causing me to sit inside and become restless.

Or the fact that I haven't built enough margins into my life. That I haven't learned that sometimes its okay to say no because saying no to a few things will free me up to say yes to better things later.

Maybe its the tiredness that has taken over my body full-force. The travel I did in Feburary and March was exhausting and I still find myself cat-napping from time to time to catch up on all the sleep my body lost.

It could even be the lack of free time I give myself. It seems like I'm always on the go with little time for physical or mental downtime.

Maybe its the mysterious pain in my stomach that has lingered on since the start of the year.

Perhaps its the start of butterflies over the next conference around the corner.

But rather than feel sorry for myself, I'm going to choose joy.

I'll celebrate the trips I got to take, and the friendship I make along the way.

I'll remind myself that rest is just as important as work hard.

That sometimes we all need a break.

That life is short, really short. I'll give as many hugs as I can get, say I love you and mean it, and celebrate every moment that is given to me!
