So I was just reading a post on one of my favourite blogs, Kenzie Life, called ‘Do What Feels Good‘ and it really made me think:
Why have we convinced ourselves that we don’t have time to do the things we love? Why do we let ourselves believe it’s a treat?
I LOVE baking and besides that one time I set my oven on fire I’m not too bad at it either. But until last weekend, when I baked this pretty little thing, I hadn’t baked anything in SO long.
One of my favourite things in the world is watching an episode of Grey’s Anatomy while attempting to bake something pretty from Bakerella. I used to make time to bake every single Tuesday (affectionately named ‘procrastibake Tuesday’). But at some point along the way I got ‘too busy’.
And it doesn’t even make sense – I’m not too busy. I spend hours at a time scrolling aimlessly through Outfit ID.
So what’s the simple equation for happiness?
Do more of the things you love. Stop believing you’re too busy. Stop feeling guilty.
From now on I will be baking every weekend – I’m not too busy to do something I love.
Thank you Alex for the inspiration!
