I love this quotation (although I’m skeptical about it’s real origins). I think a lot about the second two things in this series of three. I generally interpret “gently living” to mean how little you harmed others, but I’d be interested to hear what that phrase conjours up for you. Maybe it means how gentle you are with yourself. Man, could I use a little help in that area. In other ways, I don’t necessarily want to live gently. I’m an all-in kinda girl (excuse my gambling metaphors for a few days, will you?).
And oh how gracefully you let go of things. . . isn’t this the key? It’s seems so important to play with the cards we’ve been dealt and not waste countless time wishing for an undealt Ace (sorry. I can’t help it!)
We are easing back into life after our voracious Vegas trip.
I feel a bit behind on blog posts that are waiting to be written, but with so much travel and so many other exciting things afoot, I’m cutting myself a little slack.
There are many scary and wonderful things on the cusp of happening for me in blogland right now. I secured a much coveted ticket to Alt, I’ve started the redesign process with Elembee (she’s amazing y’all), I’m working on such a fun project with Rachel (stay tuned), and I have lots of ideas for new series and posts that I can’t wait to share with you.
And I’m in this weird life space. On the cusp of 30, I’m trying to be very present in my life and really think about where I want to go and what I want to do.
Gracefully letting go of things not meant for me. This week I’ll just focus on that.
Happy Tuesday everyone.
