My weekend consisted of a hearty dose of both laughter and sleep. On Saturday, some friends dropped by to support a side project of mine, Giffy, which is an animated photo booth iPad app (due in the App Store this summer). The Giffy team and I setup a couple of photo booths and challenged folks to make the most wacky and crazy photos they could imagine. It’s a special feeling to see people enjoy something I helped create. That same reason is one of the why I like to craft too.
Today was much more low key. I took a long nap in the afternoon and spent the remaining time organizing my notes and thoughts for the week ahead. While one could argue (namely me) that I should have used that time crossing items off my to do list, the nap was long overdue and I think my body simply overrode my brain and forced a time out.
As I forge ahead this week, with more goals and ideas than time, I will do my best to not squander the good that came from this restorative weekend. I’ll seek a balance between getting stuff done and being present enough to enjoy the laughter and moments of rest. Will you join me?
Here’s to a fresh start!
