If you know me or if you have been following my blog for a while, you probably already know that I am a hug fan of routines. It is my comfort zone! With a baby, I feel our routines are even more so... but I will admit, breaking away from the same ole' thing is refreshing... Last weekend we went to the beach to celebrate Jake's mom's birthday. Charlie had the best time! He is usually an adrenaline junkie and a huge thrill seeker, but when we got him to the beach he just sat for the longest time and played with the sand. I have never seen Charlie be so calm and so still. That was until we showed him that you can actually go into that water that keeps washing onto shore. Then, the old Charlie was back. Only smiling the biggest when he felt the waves crashing at his feet. The bigger, the better for him.
When we got home, we were tired, but I felt so alive, inspired, and just pure happiness from a fun day. It was nice being with family and doing something that just kind of resets your mind and makes you feel refreshed again.
Try it... Do something different this weekend. Put down the phone, step away from the computer, and allow yourself to just be and enjoy time with those you love. You'll find yourself coming back to work way more motivated!
