Last week was super emotional… To the nth degree. Over the course of the past 2 weeks, we’ve had some big personal obstacles and I really hadn’t been that down in the dumps in a while. Do you ever have those weeks when you just feel blue? Thankfully, the 4th of July rolled around at just the right time and instead of throwing a big bash like we’d originally planned, we opted to spend time together – just the two of us and a few close friends for the fireworks. It really was all that I needed to feel whole again.
A few weekends ago, Jake was out of town and I biked up to the Manhattan Beach pier alone. I parked my bike, grabbed a sandwich at my favorite deli and walked the pier until I could walk no further. It’s funny and so cliche that some of the simplest things really are what make you the happiest, but that day, I was completely overcome with joy and gratitude. My heart and soul felt full and I was bursting with sheer bliss. Some days when we’re doing the daily entrepreneur grind, feeling like we’re scraping by and wondering when we’re ever going to start saving for a house… or a wedding, I forget why we live here. Days like this day at the Manhattan Beach pier remind me why I moved here and why it’s all worth the wait.
Here’s to simplifying, getting past the daily noise and filling your life with gratitude. Hope you’re having a wonderful week!
