Enough

"There are never enough 'I love you's.'"

Enough.

There are few things in life that truly have no bound when it comes to being enough. We often think to ourselves that we don't have enough -- enough money, enough clothes, enough success, enough beauty, enough friends, etc. But when it comes to these things, what we already have is probably more than enough and we simply long for more because as humans we naturally have a heart of desire. However, there are a few things that I do think will never feel like enough no matter what, and those are the things that are infinite: love and time. In some ways, I feel like those two things go hand in hand. We will inevitably feel like this life that has been given to us is too short - there will never be enough time for those we love and there will never be enough I love you's to fully expound the true depth of our love for these people.

Easy Going

"Have you ever crossed an ocean only to find there is more joy to be found along the shore?"

Easy going

And easy living. That's how I feel when things come to an end - particularly, weekends. I've made it a point to book my calendar full, especially when I have long weekends. I try to take a trip or see some friends because an extra day or two tacked on to a weekend makes it seem like the possibilities are endless. I've made it a habit to allocate all of my PTO days to vacations and leave none for staycations because PTO days are like a rare and dying breed so one must cherish them as such. Thus, this past weekend was a much needed weekend of doing absolutely nothing and relishing in doing just that. I spent Thanksgiving at home with my family and made no plans to see anyone or do anything for the rest of the weekend because I simply needed some me time, and it was perfect. Don't get me wrong, I will most definitely continue to allocate all of my PTO days to traveling but every now and then we all just need to take a breather right in the comfort of our own homes where you'll be surprised to find that sometimes the greatest joys come from traveling the shortest distance.

Besos,
RC
