Happy Sunday, y’all!
I have not left my apartment today, and it has been GLORIOUS and much-needed. For the several weeks leading up to my trip, I was working a ton and I’ve been super busy since I’ve been back. I don’t remember the last time I had a day like this, and good lord was it restorative.
Yesterday, I led a walking tour for my Junior League provisional girls around the Lower East Side. (This year, I’m a provisional trainer, which means I train our new members.) At night, I attended our Junior League Fall Fete, a charity auction. This is the first time I was able to attend with zero responsibility—in previous years, I was either actively checking in/escorting press, or kind of on call for the members who were volunteering. And it was awesome to have zero responsibility.
I got my dress from Rent the Runway (<– referral link, but we each get $20 if you sign up), which has never steered me wrong. A friend asked about it this morning, and I told her that the key is to read the reviews really carefully and look for women with similar body types. To find this dress, I think I selected “full bust” when I was searching, since that’s where a dress typically does or doesn’t fit me.
I was super down in the dumps all last week, and was emailing with a friend and telling her I was feeling a little lost. She reminded me that I was the type that was always going to be pushing myself to be better, faster, etc. I’ve trained hard for big goal races, I took on a big volunteer role, I spent years trying to make a name for myself with my career and my blog. Earlier this year, when that volunteer role ended, I spent some time thinking about my priorities. I don’t currently have any big goals I’m working towards (other than attempting to kick ass at work), and I am enjoying the journey.
I don’t need to push myself to do more with Junior League, I don’t need to try to grow this blog or to get more and better deals and sponsorships (although hi if you want to, click here), and I’m happy to not be looking for a better job, like I spent so much of the last few years doing. I’m just doing me over here, and I’m pretty okay with it.
P.S. I’m currently reading Amy Poehler’s book, and I’m freaking obsessed with it.
This upcoming week, I’m super excited/terrified to try the Mile High Run Club and take a little more down time where I can.
Y tu? Enjoying the journey or pushing for a big goal?
