Hey guys! Happy Friday! My week is all messed up because Cody and I left for a business trip yesterday morning, so I feel like it should be Saturday today. I couldn’t be happier to realize it’s only Friday though!
Any guesses as to where we are?
I suppose it’s hard to tell, but it’s the best photo I could get from our hotel room. We’re in San Antonio, Texas! Neither of us have ever been here before, so I’m excited to explore a bit when we have some down time. We’re within walking distance to the River Walk which looks beautiful from what I’ve seen so far!
This weekend I made a goal for myself: to focus on relaxing! In all honesty, I’m terrible at relaxing. I’m always “go-go-go”. Even when I have time to relax, I don’t do it very well.
Since Cody will be in meetings throughout most of the mornings and afternoons this weekend, I get a lot of time to relax and take some time for myself. I’m really looking forward to not having a house to clean, papers to sort through, and places to rush off to this weekend. I want to really focus on enjoying the time I have here, living life at a slower pace, and just breathing – slowly.
It’s really difficult to live life in a slower pace these days. Everything is expected to be fast and there always seems to be something going on. I think it’s crucial that we take time to relax and look at life in a slower perspective every once in awhile.
I think I’ve done a pretty darn good job at this whole relaxing thing so far this morning. I slept in until 7:30 AM (glorious!) and slowly worked my way into the morning. I laid in bed for a good 15-20 minutes before actually getting out of bed, which never happens. I enjoyed a nice little hotel breakfast with some of the snacks I brought along – 1/2 banana, Love Grown Granola, and cashew-almond-peanut butter.
A delicious cup of coffee accompanied my breakfast.
We have a fun little single serving coffee maker right in our room. I’m loving it so far!
I also spent some time doing some quiet time with my Bible and devotional. It was nice to do it without a million other things on my mind that need to get done.
The rest of my day consists of going to the fitness center for a good sweat sesh, doing some reading, meeting Cody and some friends for lunch, and possibly taking a nap. (Who am I!?)
