Life is too short to be busy

I read this post {House in the Hills, you are darling!} and then this article by Tim Kreider, and it really gave me some extra assurance in our decision to move to California. To disconnect to reconnect. To enjoy a weekend without one thing to do. I can finally say that I’m NOT busy, whatsoever.

If anything, I’m aspiring to be more lazy-ambitious like Tim Kreider. To watch more movies. Take longer walks. Shop more for friends. Take more bubble baths. Experiment with red lipstick. Actually frame something more than our ‘We’ve Moved’ postcard. Plan our next trip to Europe. Surprise Rob more. Read for an entire afternoon. To go to bed while it’s still light out. Leave work at work. Chat longer with girlfriends. Allow myself to be utterly bored and enjoy every minute of every day. To take back the feeling of childhood where minutes felt like hours and days like weeks.

If you’re struggling with work or your busy social life, I strongly urge you to read the above posts and see how you feel after. See if you ever leave any time for YOU.

What do you like to do when you’re feeling absolutely bored? Us? We play scrabble {and watch Downton Abbey}… ;)

    Sometimes I really wish I lived with you two. Don’t get me wrong – you know I love my little cottage in the redwoods and I love Steve and Maggie, but Scrabble and Downton Abbey? Throw in a bottle of red wine and some charcuterie and that is seriously my dream life.

    Love you!

    Lol! That’s why we’re best friends ;) Oh, and the board Olive gave us is in French I think! Let’s play and watch the Marilyn movie! (!!!)
