Man, those words up there from Sarah couldn’t feel more true. I feel like I know and value what’s important: looking after my health, family, friends, down time, dates, home-cooked meals, mellow, meditative mornings, early nights; thriving. And yet… I want to hit inbox zero at the end of the day. I want to conquer the task list. I want to brainstorm. I want to make each issue better than the one before. I want to maintain this blog, this totally personal space, free from deadlines, targets and stats. I want to do it all. And yet… I pin to a board called ‘Day off daydream‘ and it’s just books and bed and tea and fancy socks.
Ben and I keep meaning to make proper downtime. We’re nerds. We love chilling and tinkering on our laptops while listening to music. Or interrupting each other’s reading to call out funny/interesting/nerdy passages. Or drinking wine while eating nice cheese. But somehow, we end up packing way more things into the day than there are hours to do them.
I do intend to do truly chill and enjoy a lil’ bit of dolce far niente. Just as soon as I finish this post.
As my mum would say, my heart is in the right place. Now it’s just a case of waiting for the rest of me to catch up…
