[San Francisco] So much of our lives takes place in our heads - in memory or imagination, in speculation or interpretation - that sometimes I feel that we can best change our lives by changing the way we look at it. It’s the perspective we choose - not the places we visit or the things that happen to us - that ultimately tells us where we stand. (P.S. The same goes with taking photos - finding the right angles can change everything!)
I never understood why "being so busy at work" takes precedence over self-care (ahem, time off). .
If you're employed by someone else (self-employed folks, I'll get to you below), your employer PAYS YOU to take time off. So please, take it. All of it.
You don’t have to take elaborate vacations across the world. Long weekends and staycations work too. The point is to leave the office and completely unplug. Spend time with your loved ones, work on your side business, go places you've always wanted to go but haven't.
And for heaven's sake, please don't work on your vacation. The office will do just fine without you (sorry, but it's true). Transition your work to someone else and GTFO.
For those of us that are self-employed, it's a little more tricky. Vacation may look different. We don't get paid to take time off, and when we do, we often feel guilty because our business success depends on us.
As you plan your year, figure in specific slots of time where you will completely unplug. Then plan around these times so your business continues moving forward. Also figure vacation time into your finances so you plan accordingly for not getting paid.
You can always make more money, but not more time. So take your vacation, ok? 🙏🏼 You'll return refreshed and ready to put in 100% again. And, maybe you'll return with clarity on what you want for your life.
On that note, I'm headed to Mexico City 💃🏼 for a few days. What will you be doing on your next vacation?
COLOUR CORRECTING TINTED MOISTURIZER || works to correct redness and decrease sun and age spots while offering a mechanical shield of sun protection. Perfect for those mornings when you're in a rush and need a quick fix.
Throwing back to days when breaking dress code by wearing denim was rebellious. I was definitely more of a Sandy than pink lady material even if I did have my moments. (Sassed a teacher or two when I was particularly hangry and nearly decked a guy spreading mean rumors about a friend) What about you- more teenage rebel or girl next door? 📷: @thegcphotography #myshopstyle#sscollective

I love sweet potatoes so much that I give myself every excuse to work them into my meal plan.
I’m constantly trying new ways to chop them, dice them and slice them, just to fit them on my plate.
But I think this is one of my favorites.

Money Rock located just a few kilometers from Mother Rock which I posted earlier. 💲💲💲
Also called Rich Rock. Locals come here to pray and ask for money and financial wealth. ⚡⚡⚡
Leave your wallet or purse on the rock to activate the energy of it always being full of money.🔥🔥🔥
People also scrap off shavings of the rock and put them in their wallet for more "good money fortune." ♨️♨️♨️
So interesting to learn about the rituals and practices of people's around the world. 🌏🌏🌏
You are Creator Being. 💜💜💜
The liquor room at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Mississippi. Every drink served there starts in a bottle here then travels through 5 miles of tube to reach the restaurants and casino. They go through $8 million worth of alcohol every year. $5 million is given away in the casino. #mscoastlife @travelsouthusa #visitmississippi#beaurivage @beaurivage_official #casino#thetravel100#girlonthego
