This blog follows no particular theme. My constant craving soul just wont allow it! This is my musings on wisdom, travels, life in Spain, kettlebells, running, rock music and so much more.

Let go weekend!

I don't usually post on Fridays and Saturdays but y'all know I just can't stay away! Just a quickie within the same theme as yesterdays.

Be careful so that all your "shoulds" and "have to's" don't get so engraved into your daily life that you might be mistaking them for desires.

This weekend, why don't we try (I sure will) to let go a little of all that we "have to" do. Try to spend your time doing as little of that as possible. Skip folding the laundry, rest if you are feeling tiered and maybe its time to let go of that "obligatory" friendship you have been holding on to only by habit.


A friend posted this on facebook today which rings very true in this sense;

"Some think it's holding on that makes one strong; sometimes it's letting go..."

Have a brilliant weekend everyone!

I love that quote! And, to you...I would miss Greece also if I had lived there. It looks magical. I do think you are right that our brains put"the perfect" life into a place or person which is somewhat funny because happiness is within ourselves. Believe me, I do it sometimes too!
