Hello and happy Friday!
At the beginning of the year I sat down and made a list. Not a list of additions to my daily to-dos or of resolutions meant to make me better in the upcoming year.
The list I’m focusing my energy on now is a to-BE list.
My to-be list focuses on being instead of doing. Thriving rather than just surviving. Living, loving, and respecting myself and others more.
Here are a few things on my to-be list:
- Be early, not just on time.
- Be more more plant-centric and eat less meat.
- Be more present and slow down. Enjoy!
- Be more of a daily documenter by taking more photos of my family, not just food—even though my breakfasts with my poached eggs above are pretty photo friendly.
- Be a better friend. Check in and spend more time together.
- Be more romantic, be more affectionate, make more dates, and have more sex. Rarrrrrrr.
- Be a better golfer. And have fun working at it (if that’s possible.)
- Be an anticipator instead of a procrastinator, and get sh*t done!
- Be more adventurous and make more travel plans.
- Be kinder to myself with self-care. And how about weekly flower pick me ups?!!?
So that’s my list. What would you put on yours?
But enough about my lists, let’s dig into this week’s list of Friday Faves!
