Falling into Crazy.

Fall is my favorite. But fitting in all the favorites is a struggle. There’s friends I haven’t seen in a long time, that I want to. But I just don’t seem to have the time/energy/freedom.

I am so glad I took the time to go to Camp Coco last weekend. I needed a weekend of exploring, alone, yet with others. Strangers who might become friends. I felt refreshed throughout the weekend. Happy for the outside time, bonfire time, and being out of my little St. Paul studio.

I’m skeptical. How do people really fit in everything they want to do? Cause I’ve spent the last two nights in my apartment, homework, cleaning, laundry, cooking. Maybe its because there isn’t another person to help me out. But I have plenty of single friends who seem to have their schedules under control. So where are the hours going?

life among deathWhile at Camp Coco I participated in each event, and a short hike with casual conversation had me realizing how important my faith is, how I need to continue to nurture that. While having that realization, I took the above photo. I needed the little sprout of green. Hopefully the beginnings of the next pine tree, and there is a beginning of more peace in my thoughts on scheduling.

How do you recharge? Do you go into the woods alone? Or seek out friends in the city?

  1. I have a hard time making time for everything, too. And as I get older, I have realized that I can’t do everything I want to do because then my calendar gets too full and I get overwhelmed/stressed out about my lack of free time. I’m trying to be more realistic about what I actually have time for so I can avoid that feeling of panic when looking at an over-planned week. I’m doing so so right now but I think it will get easier as we move into the winter months as people tend to do less/hibernate.

  2. I’m definitely a “go into the city” type of girl when it comes to destressing, which confuses EVERYONE in my life. My workouts are my “alone” time, but I’d much rather be in Chicago or a big city wandering around.
