TO – 11/05 – we can’t always look great…

What did you do today that you really could have let someone else do? Have you noticed that sometimes it’s just easier to do things ourselves than ask for help??
I need to bring a new word into my vocabulary… it’s called delegation.

So yesterday I had my first yoga class. It was very relaxing at the end and did wonders for my mood. Today I’m experiencing some sore muscles, well I’m just starting out, besides I think yoga can cause soreness, even if you are in good physical shape, because it encourages you to use muscles that are otherwise neglected.
Tomorrow I’ll have my second class which I expect will be good to unstress me to my friday seminar’s exam.
I’m feeling tired, because we have been working a lot at the seminar, but at the same time it has been very dynamic with many brainstorming, which gives it many interest.

Well, not everyday one has the creativity, the conditions, which can come from many factors, to look great…
But we have to accept it… and why not picture it? It’s also part of life.

  26. yoga is so fun.

    i havent been in a while.

    swapped to running.

  27. im a huge fan of those plaid scarfs, they add such a fantastic touch to the look

  28. Great that you have enjoyed you yoga class!
    I hope you can relax at the weekend and load up your power! Next week will be busy for me too and so i trying to relax a little bit and enjoy the last days of my holiday!
    You look so pretty with this scarf, wonderful colours!
    And thank you for you lovely comments all the time! I love it :)
    Hope you will have fun at your next yoga class, sunshine :)
    (And you don´t look tired, you´re smiling and you look pretty!)

  29. Yoga did help me during difficult times.
    I got my mantra from yoga classes. :)
    Enjoy while you can and delegation is must!

  30. Wow, I havent exercised in ages! :X Love how you wore the scarf though :)

  31. Always beautiful... I adore the way this outfit seems to transform without the jacket!!!

    And I know exactly what you mean!! I'll prepare the ubiquitous question, "Would you mind..." and then stop dead in my tracks, answering before anyone has the opportunity. "Never mind, I'll do it myself."

    Why is that?

    Yes, because by default, sometimes it is just easier!


  32. I agree, my boyfriend likes to do stuff for me all the time, but it makes us fight because he never does it properly it's always easier just to do it myself!

  33. I almost never ask for help!
    Love your scarf!

  34. your scarf is amazing, just like the shirt! i have to get myself a similar.

    oh darling, i'd like to write a bit more, but theres a HUGE spider in front of me and so i can't concentrate. i'm sorry.


Thank you for visiting my humble blog! I read all your comments (even though I don't reply often) with great care. So keep them coming! Love to everyone :)
