This fall has been jam packed. I started working 6 days a week. I adopted a 98% gluten-free, plant based diet which requires a lot of planning and cooking. I've renewed my emphasis on running and overall fitness. And I've been trying to squeeze in time to see friends and family. Free time is a delicacy these days, but I wouldn't want it any other way.
What I do want...and what I really need, is to appreciate each day a little more. When you work six days a week, it can be tough to fit in things you really enjoy. Which makes the days all kind of pass by in a blur. But I find that when I make the time to do something new- even if it's something teensey like watching an interesting documentary, or whipping up a tasty new recipe - I end the day feeling so much more fulfilled.
