Since coming back from my trip, I had to overcome the following: jet lag, depressed mood and the challenge of returning back to my daily routine. I think I have finally settled back in, but I’m still experiencing post leave blues.
A few days ago I spent the afternoon with my little one at our favorite Italian ice cream spot, savoring desserts and listening to live jazz music outside. When she wasn’t ditching me to run off with other children (lol), we were creating slow motion videos of her displaying her ninja moves. We had time to browse through some local shops. One where I spotted this friendly reminder in the form of a cuff bracelet (details at the bottom of this post): “Be Here Now”. A mantra so fitting for the moment. It was a rare afternoon where I was able to leave work early, and I was spending it with my favorite person in the world.
I felt grateful and the sadness I held in previous days subsided.
I know I have a lot to be thankful for.
