Live a Little

Thursday, August 24, 2017

Sometimes we just need a reminder to chill out and cut ourselves some slack, because the world won't stop and keeping up is not always the best option. So here is some sound advice from Emily Lemer aka the 77 year-old goddess, who knows a thing or two about a well-lived-life:

'Stop worrying so much. As long as you have enough money to pay your rent and buy food, don’t worry about anything. I have some young friends that work 14-hour days. Working too much is really the wrong way to do it. What is success? Financial success? Does that mean that you have to have a million dollars in your bank by the time you’re 30? I don’t think that’s necessary. Don’t do it. There’s a balance of being comfortable, of having enough money to live on and then just having a good time. You’ve got to balance. You’ve got to find time to play. You gotta have a little life, a little fun. Find your soul.'

Now, instead of doing that thing you need to tonight, simply get home, open a bottle of wine, and treat your husband and yourself to a rare night in, just the two of you...

Deal?

P.S: Forget multitasking, try monotasking.
P.P.S: Tiny everyday reminders.
