In the Middle of It All // Gratitude

A little while ago, someone told me how I would never find happiness until I took time to be with the people I loved and didn’t let all the weight of responsibilities interrupt it.

Over the past few years, it’s gotten easier and easier to prioritize everything besides ~happiness~. A lot of the time it felt too fleeting. Truth be told, delving into more and more projects to build my resume or picking up more hours to work is a lot easier than intentionally having fun – but building relationships and a life worth living isn’t rooted in a good resume or having a little extra money, it’s in taking the time to enjoy the life given to us, to create in whatever way we might desire.

&&& I COMPLETELY FORGOT ABOUT THAT ! ! !

And in the midst of projects and the busiest season of the year, I realized that I hadn’t been taking any time to live.

So here’s to a weekend of late fight family feud, racing through the Met (backwards), coffee coffee and more coffee, and embracing the city with every last ounce of who we are. I may be tired, but my heart has never felt so full. THIS IS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE ! ! ! This is what we are supposed to feel like some times ! ! ! In the middle of chaos, sometimes rejoicing and truly truly living the life that makes you realize what an amazing gift life is is the absolute best thing you can do.

Everyone deserves those moments that make you look at your life and think, “I can’t believe this is real”.

It’s easy to feel like everything in life is a job, overwhelming and an endless cycle of work with no reward. Yet sometimes, taking the time to step away and stop everything besides having a mindset geared to fully embrace everything around you is the best remedy to it. We were given a life to make our own and fill with the people & places we love most, so why don’t we do more of that?

& if that’s not a compelling enouuggggghhhh of a reason to embrace the beautiful life we have, maybe these are.

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

Psalm 16:11

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

with love always,

Elle
