Weekend Notes

By Camille Styles

Happy weekend, y’all! Hope it’s been a good one so far. I’ve been reading this book that a friend gave me, called Present Over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living. I knew before I even opened it that it was exactly what my life is needing right now. Like so many of you, one of my biggest challenges is feeling like I don’t have enough time to do all the things I’d like to do. Or at least, give them the level of presence and attention that I’d like to, since when I say “yes” to one more thing on our schedule, I’m essentially saying “no” to something else, whether I realize it or not. The author articulates so many of the struggles I’ve been feeling and shares her journey towards slowing down and finding peace from the frantic pace of her schedule. So with that, I’m shutting down my laptop to pour myself another cup of coffee and go hang out with the fam on the patio. Hope you guys have a wonderful Sunday, and keep scrolling for my favorite links from around the web this week! xo
