happy monday, friends -- as you read this, i am getting ready to head off to work! yes, after a month of freelancing, i'm heading back to an office, and i can't wait. i'm wearing a cute outfit (you know, like, actual pants) and everything.
and i can honestly say that, as we come to the end of january, it was a pretty great month. leaving my job was the best thing to ever happen: a bunch of opportunities opened and continue to open up, i got to take a little trip, i've reconnected with friends and family, and i feel fresh and rested. there's a forward momentum, for sure, and i'm so, so grateful for it. this quote is really ringing true right now:
in the midst of winter, i found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
what an awesome feeling -- one i hope you all have felt, as well.
ok, so, before i get all rambly and sappy, here are this week's commitments -- tell me yours, too!
+ doing well at my new job. eeeeeep! though it's a contractor position right now, it's at a company i know and love with people who i've known for years and really love. yay!
+ in that vein, stick to one of my new year's resolutions and dress like a grownup. this includes hair and makeup.
+ work on a detox plan for february. more on this to come tomorrow.
+ embrace tea. i don't know why i have the urge to drink more hot tea -- maybe it's all the blog reading i do, and all the mentions of hot tea i often see, or maybe it's that i found a recipe for an orange-chamomile and lavender honey tea that looks divine. who knows? but yes: embrace tea.
+ jog a few miles a few days this week. yay, exercise. also: pilates every night.
+ find a yummy treat to bake for the super bowl party i'm attending for a bit on sunday.
see you back here tomorrow, everyone -- i hope you have a wonderful, bright monday! xoxo
