Sometimes it's necessary to slow down. One of the perks that comes with working in academia is the time off that I get to enjoy. I am on spring break! I remember when spring break involved a trip with friends to a sunny sandy location with loud music and too many jello shots, but now, all I really want is to spend some time here...
I must confess that I have problems allowing myself to relax. I always get an anxious feeling in my stomach that makes me feel like I need to be working or generating results in some sort of tangible form. Now that I am on Spring Break, I am going to slow down and just enjoy some me time.
I simply adore the pillowcases that I finished embroidering. I keep glancing at them as I sip my coffee and ponder some new stitching projects.
I may not be able to stop and smell the roses, but I am definitely stopping to enjoy this moment and the flowers on these pillowcases.
Until next time!
