Pulse

April 4, 2016

unspecified

Pulse. Sometimes I just need to remember to stop for a moment and “check” my pulse. It’s incredible how much we’re capable of putting a big load of responsibilities and tasks on our shoulders, running around, making a living, trying to balance all of the roles that we’re so to say, playing in our lives… How often are we guilty of not putting ourselves in the first place much more often?!

Checking your own pulse… Being in a complete silence, not thinking about anything, not doing anything, just sitting or laying down, listening to your own heartbeat… When was the last time that you have done this? I truly can’t remember when was the last time that I have done it.

Even when I have my “down time”, it still involves some sort of electronics around me, thoughts still rushing through my mind and/ or worrying about “what could maybe be” with whatever it is that might be bothering me or which tasks I haven’t managed to take care of today and how can I solve them tomorrow, etc.

I had a pretty stressful week, esp. the weekend and I’ll do my best to remember and check my own pulse more often this week, worry less, stress less and treat myself a little bit more. New working BUT wise!! and relaxing week, here I come! ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Monday everybody!

I’m wearing: Blazer – Alice & Olivia, Blouse – Acne, Skirt – Zara, Boots – Ten points, Bag – Lumi, Sunglasses – Celine, Lipstick – Mac

    can i just say, this post made me feel a bit relaxed?
    so much love for this post, since I know exactly what youve been feeling.
    There comes a point in our lives that we have so much on our plate, that we forget the happenings to our surroundings, including ourselves.
    Im happy you made this post, i really do hope you feel better now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    love always, Ena Cui

      Da, imala sam dosta “bug fixes” zbog prebacivanja bloga na novu platformu. PUNO ti hvala na ovako divnom komentaru… Obozavam ovaj sako, jedan mi je od najdrazih komada odjece u mom ormaru. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You are soooo right. We, or at least I, should try and wind down more, but, as you say, there’s always something to think about, organize mentally etc. Onto the look. The blazer is awesome, I love it and perfect paired with the denim skirt. BTW, love the new blog layout, congrats. xoxoxo

    I like the shape and color of your skirt. Small details like buttons and pockets make it unique and cute.
