✨EYE OPENER✨ It’s been a crazy week.. my sister gets married tomorrow and I have been MORE THAN BUSY. Weddings are hard work!!! I’m excited for tomorrow but on Monday I need some selfcare! I also need to give good quality time to my family.. Unfortunately, I have not been great about putting them first lately. I’m just such a go getter and executor that when it’s crunch time I DONT STOP!!! I just have to remember that my family comes FIRST no matter what. Thankfully, my husband has been great at picking up my slack but it’s not fair.. he deserves a break too. Anyways, all that being said, remember your priorities! A good lesson I learned was it’s ok to assign people to do things for you! It’s ok to not be super woman! Happy Saturday!! Take some time for YOU today! You deserve it!

Szelest suchej trawy rozbudził w niej dawne pragnienia. Wyciągnęła dłonie w stronę słońca, aby złapać ich jak najwięcej. Rozłożyła wełniany koc na łące tuż za domem i przeniosła się w świat swojej duszy. Swoboda. Lekkość. Beztroska. Powtarzała wciąż pod nosem. Bosą stopą dotykała trawy, czuła jak ją łaskocze. Przez moment miała wrażenie, że puls ziemi jest jej nieopisanie bliski. Wtedy też wróciły wspomnienia sielskich zabaw z bratem. Kiedy uniosła głowę, na bezchmurnym niebie ujrzała dwa bawiące się ptaki, a później motyle. Cała łąka pulsowała życiem. Nawet na tym bezludnym wycinku natury nie była sama. "Włosy w nieładzie, spokój w głowie" - wyszeptała do siebie, chwyciła za suchy skrawek trawy i uśmiechnęła się tak mocno, że na jej twarzy pojawiły się dwie nowe zmarszczki. Ona kolekcjonuje je...🌿 ———- Kochani na blogu krótka historia o beztroskich chwilach...💋 (link w bio @cam_myy) #finditliveit @madelle_varsovie #szczerze_pisząc

Do not worry about what the others will say. Just carry an I-don't-care attitude and go for it. Even if you don't like it, remember it is hair, and it will grow back again! So have some fun in life and experiment with a new look this summer.
