I spent most of my week hanging out with a handful of friends since we’ve all been so isolated for months! It was nice to spend a few hours reconnecting with the faces I’ve missed so much.
I’ve also been doing a lot of sitting, thinking, and daydreaming in the sunshine. I believe part of achieving healthy balance in life is not always being productive, but also taking time to rest. I love the leisurely pace of summer and it feels even lazier this year because of the impact of the virus on movement and activities. I’m rolling with it and actually enjoying it. Instead of traveling overseas or across the country, I’m visiting places around my county that I don’t usually explore, and it’s been really lovely doing just that. :)
