The Fourth of July

8 Jul

Last week was rough to me. I was so stressed about work and life that I didn’t look forward to the 4th of July long weekend at all.

Until I had a talk with my husband, the person who is always with me when I am overwhelmed; the person who doesn’t talk a lot but would say the sweetest thing at these moments. I know I will be okay just by holding his hand. I cried a little but laughed more. Turns out, it is one of the best weekends we have together with families, friends, and each other.

I came across these words from Julia Louis-Dreyfus the other day “It’s not possible to do and have everything all the time. So you have to make choices…free yourself up to prioritize.” (btw, I hope I could be like her at my 50’s. Healthy, in good shape, happy and content.)

Try live in the present and be free.
