The calm before the storm?

So, I am a bit of a pessimist, even though I try my hardest to be an optimist.

 And I am trying to just enjoy the calmness in our life in the past week. No crazy projects, not tons of appointments, nothing seeming to go wrong, no big disasters. Everything for the most part settled (obviously, aside from general financial woes).

Things have been chill at home, a nice routine - work, dog walk, work on dissertation, dinner then either TV or social time. It's easy, calm, familiar.

Going to enjoy it while it lasts and try not to focus on the next upheaval of life, haha :)

Optimism IS hard for me and something I have to purposely work on, just like physical health.

The weather is still PLENTY nice enough for walking outside on my breaks, which does WONDERS for my mood:

Been a great fall and I'm grateful for it!!

Have a lovely day <3


  1. Probably the next 'shoe to fall' is the weather. ;) (I hope I hope)

  2. Enjoy your peace, and the weather!

  3. I definitely miss fall, at least how it was in Wisconsin. We don't get any of the changing colours here, just lots of rain. Don't miss winter though, you can keep that! Lol.
