Just relax!


Sometimes we need a reminder to just relax and to not “sweat” the small stuff. I know my mind is always active trying to brainstorm/find solutions for this problem or that problem. Most times these problems don’t even belong to me! I think I would be a skinny thing if the rate at which your mind worked led to weight lossSmile. I’m not going to get all Dr. Phil on you or anything, i'm just saying take it easy and just relax. A wise man, aka my hubby always told me “If you can’t control it, don’t worry about it.” Easier said than done, especially with the lifestyle I lead being married to him! Anyway, I’m going to give it a try and you should too. 



This daybed combed with all these pillows and linens that are bursting with exotic flair would make the perfect spot to just relax, wouldn't it? Here’s to a relaxing weekend for everyone. Hugs and kisses to each of you! XX

  8. Dear Stacey!
    Just what I needed to hear. Thanks for giving us this important reminder as life goes by in a hurry! We really need to chill out and relax some more, I totally agree and I´m taking your advice right here right now:)!
    Thanks for asking how I am feeling. Well, It has been a crazy, crazy week(again)and even if I love my job my body sometimes have a hard time catching up:).I´m also, like you a huge fan of the 'worrying fan club'. I can go on and on over something, but still that does not change what is, I know that...
    Like yesterday I broke an item in a customers home. I´ve been hard on my self doing that even if it was an accident, and shit happens, right!? My common- law tells me to let it go, it won´t change a thing going on and on about it:)
    Have a relaxed weekend!
    Lots of love to a friend:)!

  9. I know exactly what you mean about your racing mind, sometimes it's hard for me to even quiet it down enough to fall asleep. I love the look of that picnic, I try but mine just never look like that.

  13. Hi S-I agree with you, we all need to relax! my warning came in the form of carpal tunnel this week. This has led me to reexamine the amount of time that I spend doing something that I love and yet pushing through symptoms and pains that I should pay more attention to-I love your images as always they are fantastic! I hope you have a lovely weekend

  24. "If you can't control it, don't sweat it" HOW TRUE!!! and you are right, i think it is easier said than done. the art of letting go is what i need to learn and apply in my life too, thanks for sharing and the reminder, and you are blessed with a wise husband, please tell him that he is right :)

    Wishing you a fantastic weekend

    XOXO

  25. My hubby says almost the same thing and I suspect it's the reason he falls asleep immediately and I lie awake thinking about things I can't control! Happy weekend Stacey.
