Life lately – taking some time off!

The past few days have been quite hectic to me. At some point I got really tired of doing my best and going over the limit daily. I know I’ve talked a lot about balance, the importance of winding off and don’t get me wrong – I do this occasionally. But lately I haven’t been feeling like myself, there’s something going on and I need some time to figure it out. Maybe I’m just growing older and the upcoming birthday is the reason behind it (they say we all are a bit more sensitive during the month we were born), maybe I just need to step back from all the blogging thing a little, have a break and source for some inspiration. Maybe I just need some time with myself, and I’m going to have bit of that since we are going on the road trip this Wednesday. Although I’ll be honest – I’ve been super sensitive for the past few days and that has showed me another part of myself which I want to learn more about…

I want to live through those feelings and learn how to deal with them. I feel thirsty for real emotions and experiences, and I’m going to take the most out of those this week. Thus I’m not saying that life hasn’t been real till now – it was. But I haven’t been this sensitive… like for so long now, and this time I’m not going to force myself to suck it all up, or fight them, or even worse – ignore them. I’m going to observe them all, ask questions and look for answers. And I’m not afraid of failing, although I’m not afraid of the changes and growth. And I get a sense that this year has going be a lot about that.

And that’s why I’m going to be shorter and quicker with today’s post :) So let’s source some inspiration and motivation together – I think that has been missed on this blog, right?


• Have you watched Golden Globes yet? We did couple of parts of it, still not finished though, getting there! I haven’t yet checked all the winners, as per usual – we are betting on those, but there’s so much to catch up on their site and that’s pretty exciting if you want to skip the whole show or want to rewind the best parts!
This song has been on repeat today, and definitely The Amazing Spiderman is behind it since I’ve watched both parts twice this weekend. I’m just kinda obsessed with their love story, and I’m not ashamed of that! :P
• My new discovery – Yigal Ozeri a painter from Israel based in NYC who paints women in nature. Yes, these all are oil paintings and I’m amazed!
• I’ve already watched this video like 5 times, and still cannot decide whether it’s too much about details or these are legit?
• Check out my all time favorite stationery and planners, notebooks from kikki.K! Yes, I’ve got one myself – it was a gift for Christmas, and I can’t put in words how much I love everything from that store!
