May

Months are flying and without even realising we are approaching summer time… I love all seasons but summer has something very special about is. That more relaxed vibe, less layers and sun kiss skin. Today I want to share with you what I have been up to last month and maybe show you some pictures I have not featured on this blog before.

May has been a very busy month for me work wise and I had not had a chance to travel much. Few day trips that is all what we had time for… Maybe June will be more generous when it comes to free time ?

Life in a country

I am a city animal. I have been born and raised in a big city and I love being close to action. I cannot imagine not having restaurants, cinema and shops close to where I live. Having said all of that, I now live in a countryside. Quite a few years ago we made a conscious decision to move out of the city, closer to nature.

Initially, I wanted to show You these pictures as a What I wore Sunday post but I have change my mind considering deeper meaning of what I want to say. The main reason for the post is to motivate my readers to find balance. In life, workplace, responsibility that You take on Your shoulders. Although I still struggle from time to time to separate my life and tasks, moving closer to nature has definitely made a positive difference for me. I love the fact that when I close the door to my house I hear silence. No cars, buses, trams and all the typical noises associated with the life in a big city.

I am very lucky that we have made it work for us. I commute for work everyday but on the weekend and days off I have a chance to go for a walk and try to enjoy simpler way of living. As there is still part in me that needs the city associated guilty pleasures like eating out or shopping I love to treat myself to a trip to Manchester or London from time to time.

So whatever You enjoy in life, finding a balance between duties and pleasures is crucial. Reflecting on everyday as well as dreaming big will help to change Your reality. Can do attitude does not cost anything but will make a huge difference !
