Friday Mornings

Image
Happy Friday everyone!! Between library programming and preparing for summer festivities, I'm excited to get away for the weekend. I'm heading to L.A. for a quick trip, I'm hitting a few museums  and going to a live podcast showing of And That's Why We Drinkwith a girlfriend.

Now that I'm in my thirties and have a career (and in just a matter of a few weeks I'll have a new little niece or nephew), it's about slowing down and enjoying the things I have. When I graduated from college almost ten years ago, I hit the ground running. I felt behind in life so the first job I took I became obsessive and inevitably turned into a workaholic. I said yes to everything, my life became my job and pleasing others was way more important than my health and well being. Most of my twenties were a blur. 
 Now that I am entering a new decade, I want to be able to live a more meaningful life and to be happy with myself. The other night as I lay restless in bed a memory from college popped into my head. I was walking back to my dorm room after class one grey and chilly afternoon, I couldn…
