Where did that month go?

Where the hell have I been for the past month?!

It’s quite a paradox actually—the times when I’m out having the most adventures, is exactly when I don’t have time to sit down and write about them. But I’ve found a moment, so here’s a little teaser of stories to come.

There’s been a birthday celebration for my mama, I was given the gift of time—to stop and welcome new life into this world, I was asked to be a godmother, I danced my ass off at a rockabilly 50’s night, I dressed to the nine’s for said event, I’ve kept some exciting projects moving forward, met oodles of new friends and interesting souls, became a certified yoga instructor for children, signed up for swing dance lessons, I rode a motorcycle (and didn’t burn my leg this time), found some new scenes with live music, attempted to climb to the rooftop of a building and freaked out halfway up–guess maybe I am afraid of heights, began a children’s book with a dear friend, started classes at Second City Theater (a true dream of mine), had a photoshoot, drank the best michelada of my entire life, and was personally serenaded by a mariachi band.

I vow to keep the adventures rolling AND the posts coming.

I saw the following quote and it really resonated with me. I hope some of you are inspired by it—I’ve find it to be incredibly true over the past year. (That story is coming too!)

Beat the “Sunday Night Blues”

My dad and I always joke about a thing called the Sunday Night Blues. You’ve had a great weekend— you’ve indulged in your passions, were in control of your own time, and surrounded yourself with those you love.

Right about now it hits you that you are headed into Monday morning and a long week.

It doesn’t have to be this way. I no longer dread my oncoming week, I embrace it with joy and anticipation. Here’s some short and sweet inspiration–may it give you perspective and help you find the strength and energy to follow your passions. Sooner, rather than later.

“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.” –H. Jackson Brown
