I love “Currently” posts because they bring you back to the here and now. This week I’ve finally been practicing what I preach and have slowed down a little in order to be more present in each day. Life is pretty great when you take time to notice it and this post is all about celebrating the little things.
Current book: Does an eBook count? I got Georgie’s Bloggers Guide to Instagram Photography and I’m devouring it like a chocolate birthday cake. I was not all about the insta before I became a bonafide blogger, but she enriched this book with content that is out of this world and is continuing to excite me about all the insta possibilities.
I’m also reading a book by the amazing Tim Keller.
Current song: “Gone” by Jr Jr has my toes tapping and I’m also obsessed with Shovels and Rope feat Shakey Grave’s cover of “Unknown Legend” by Neil Young.
Current drink: Funny you should ask. I’ve been sippin’ on this Chia Coconut Green Tea drink lately and the recipe will be up on my instagram account this afternoon.
Current guilty pleasure: Binge watching the Biggest Loser and crying in every sad and happy part, which is the whole show. What’s wrong with me? I can’t really sit down and watch a show, but I’ll have it playing while I’m in the kitchen and just be sobbing over the dishes. I need to stop watching it.
Current new-to-me item/activity: My blogging bowls/bowl collecting.
My brother-in-law got home yesterday and was like “Margaret what the h*ll are all these bowls doing in the living room?!” Gah, those are my blogging bowls, duh.
Current need: An adventurous weekend
Current workout: BBG and of course running
Current procrastination: I need to work more on my theme but it’s such a time suck that I’m avoiding it. I also need to clean my room, but thats more like something I need to do everyday and don’t.
Current blessing: Absolutely everything. I recently started leading a women’s small group through my church and I’d say they are my most recent blessing. Also my sister and brother-in-law and eternally patient boy friend.
Current quote: I pinned this a while ago and wow I want this on my heart now more than ever!
There’s a lot of feedback in blogging and social media that it’s really easy to find gratification in it and there are times where I start to let it sway my thoughts and emotions, but this instantly reminds me where I find my assurance, happiness, and worth.
Current mood: Is hungry a mood? If it is, I’m an incredibly steady person
Current excitement: I bought my plane ticket to Italy last weekend and it made it all the more real! My entire huge Italian family and I are going in July and renting 3 villas and are traveling all around. It’s been a long time coming and I can’t believe we’re finally doing it.
Current e-card/funny quote: Me every time I buy new running shoes.
Current link love: My link love isn’t a new post, but I read it a month or so ago and it stuck with me so much that my mind went right to it so you know it’s powerful! “Life Without Labels“- The Healthy Maven
