Happy Friday! I hope everyone has made it through the workweek intact and is getting ready for a fun/relaxing/productive/insert-your-favorite-adjective-here weekend. I'm looking forward to catching up on Girls and Mad Men, hitting up the Portland Farmers' Market and celebrating several friends' June birthdays at a pot-luck dinner party. I'm going to be making a gluten-free vegan birthday cake, which is definitely a first! Wish me lots of luck!
So... the image above. I am a huge fan of good quotes, and this one is an all-time fave of mine. It took years for me to have that "ah ha" moment and realize how powerful this truth is. Try to appreciate those times over the weekend when your friends say they're busy or aren't texting you back and you get stuck spending the afternoon by yourself. (B*tches. jk!) Make the most of your own company and go do something that you really enjoy - especially something that you love but nobody else seems to (for me that would be stalking the aisles of Good Will for vintage Pyrex). In my own experience, spending time by myself has become one of the most rewarding and empowering practices in my life. I actually look forward to it! I think it's one of those "the more you do it, the more you love it" kinda things.
What is your favorite way to spend time solo?
