take it easy.

I grew up listening to songs like "Take It Easy" by the Eagles. I only wish I did a better job of channeling such tunes in my daily life. As I think most of us have learned, certain days are more stressful than others. Today is one of them for me. I'll get through it, especially when I have mantras like "take it easy" echoing through my head...

I am so grateful to have this blog as a creative outlet on days like this. I don't talk about it much, but I do have a 9-to-5 sales job which helps to pay our bills. When I have a hectic day at work, your comments and emails encourage me more than you'll ever know.

Though I'm not particularly good at taking it easy, I am going to channel the Eagles today. I don't mean that I won't give 110%--I simply mean that I am not going to sweat the small stuff. Join me :)

  10. Certainly a motto to live by! And the Eagles are awesome, so there's that :) Lots of deep breaths and a stress ball (that I've all but squeezed to death) help me get through my day, take it easy!

  11. THANK YOU for this post. I'm terrible at taking it easy--I'm a worrier and stress out about everything whether I can control/change it or not. I'm trying to take it easy, but it's certainly easier said than done.

  18. Love the lyrics of "Take It Easy" -- mainly, "Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy". I hate days like these where you feel overwhelmed -- but keep up the great work, and know that you really are the best :)
    Isn’t That Charming.
