It's Ok Thursday.


Its Ok Thursdays

It's ok....
...to not even pack a hair dryer for Haiti, who will I be impressing anyway?
...to be mildly terrified of the pictures that will be taken of you while wearing all lose fitting clothing for a week.
...to pack some chocolate because you can't imagine going a week without it.
...to have a week where you can't keep up your typical reading schedule (here's your chance to catch up!)
...to be phone and internet free for a WEEK! This idea mildly terrifies me but also excites me. A chance to really get away and truly be unplugged.
...to love the journal Jess got me for my trip. Can't wait to write in it.
...to be scared of what you might miss while you're out of touch.
...to want to travel the world now that you forked out 180 bucks on a passport (anyone want to go to Europe next year?)
...to be over scheduled.
...to take a day or two off from time to time to love your life again.
...to be slightly crazy in the head after reading ' Master Your Metabolism' by Jillian Michaels. Too.much.info.
...to make rules and break em. I tell myself I have to do things and then sometimes I chuck that and do what I want.
...to love to layout. I know, I know - sunscreen. But I just love the sun.
...to be giddy with excitement about possibly having Mia, Jo, and Amber in Tampa the same weekend this summer.
...to love getting mail, even if it's stuff you paid for.
...to be obsessed with One Kings Lane.
...to already be working on your birthday wish list, when your birthday is in September. These home projects have got me making all kinds of lists.
...to overcommit to fun things. Trips, visits, birthday parties, oh my.
It's ok.
Love,
B

My birthday is in September too! And my list has been in existence for a long, long time. I hope your trip was wonderful and that you're safe and sound!

I constantly overcommit myself! I keep telling myself I'm going to cut back on activities but I love being busy too much!

I was "unplugged" for two weeks last year when I went to India. At first it was scary, but then really exhilarating! It took me a while to get back in touch with technology when I came home!

At least it's a lot of fun stuff with the people you love!

I hope you blog about your journal! I have been praying for you every day and can't wait to hear all about your trip!

There's nothing wrong with overcommitment as long as you enjoy it!

I love One Kings Lane too! I've gotten some great things from that site over the past year or so. Even though it's scary to be so disconnected, it's also pretty liberating and allows you to just go with the flow. Can't wait to hear about your trip when you get back!
