When I returned from Hong Kong just under two weeks ago, I hit the ground running. 9-5 at my in-house client booking, 7-11 at my everything-else-I-normally-work-on booking. And somehow, somehow, I pulled off a big ol’ relaunch of Daisybutter. I mean, ya girl’s pretty damn tired, but it’s all for the greater good. Hustling hard now means a beautiful house at the end of it.
Lately I’ve been doing my best to envision what I want my life to look like in a years’ time, in five years’ time. I suppose I’ve been so caught up recently in the here and now, trying to get through each sleep-deprived day without ‘messing up’ that I’d lost sight of what I might even be working for!
And you know me, that’s not really what I’m about!
There’s a lot to be said for appreciating the smaller, not necessarily finer details of the everyday mundane. Here’s to another list of petite joys, the moments that’ve brought and woven poetry to my days, this week:
一. An impromptu Monday evening spring clean, which means my room looks fresh for the first time in an embarrassingly long time.
二. Visiting my best friend of 15 years and getting to cuddle her baby girl for the first time.
三. Puppy cuddles! Harvey’s family welcomed a new pup to the house at the weekend.
四. When the train doors open right where you’re standing.
五. Long reading sprints when your diary is clear.
六. A cup of teapigs Chocolate Flake Tea.
七. Golden sun pouring through the windows of my train carriage each evening commute.
八. Feeling like you might just be doing something right.
九. Having Tweets scheduled (for once!).
十. Starting to piece together our Hong Kong and Taiwan photo book.
