Feels good to report that things slowed down a lot in the last week. Not because the pile of things I had to do were reduced necessarily, but because I decided to allow myself to take things at a slower pace. I’d been getting closer to burnout by the day, hence it felt like the smart thing to do. So, time to let you in on some Bitesize Wonders, right?
Sadly, I still had to work during the week, but I spent the rest of my time eating whatever yummy food I could get my hands on, shooting content for my newly launched YouTube channel and catching up on Michelle Choi’s lifestyle vlogs. While I always wanted to start making videos on YouTube for the longest time, I think it was discovering her slice-of-life videos in the last few months that flamed the desire in me even stronger.
For the most part, it’s been an interesting experience having a camera in my face at odd times during the day. I’ve never been camera shy in front of the camera when taking pictures, but shooting videos is something I’ve often found a tad bit unnatural and awkward. I’m sure you’ll see what I mean when I release my first vlog coming soon (Click here to subscribe!!).
Although I slowed down as much as I could this week, it seems aside from my work hours, everything else went by so fast. That didn’t stop me from capturing moments of pure magic to trap on a page to recall as Bitesize Wonders. You guessed it, the time to open up my gratitude journal for the week is here. Here are the little big things that made me even one ounce of happy the past few days:
- Slurping on spicy hot noodles after the looooongest work day. A craving satisfied.
- Knocks on doors that come with brand new well-packed items. Inside? A restock of my current favourite skincare and beauty products and a few never-used-before to add to my collection.
- Being comfortable being alone.
- The comfy couch. A black remote. The recognisable red logo at the start of a Netflix movie. A cardboard box with steam and a tasty smell coming through. The laughs that cannot be held in bursting out every few minutes. A soft yellow blanket to chase away the cold still lingering in the living room. The gratification as the ending credit rolls across the black screen. A joy within for the simple things.
- Good health. I often forget it’s not a guarantee.
- A faint memory that makes me crack a smile in the middle of a tough day. Because although things aren’t the way they used to be, nothing can change what they once were…
Have a great week ahead!
Your restless romantic roamer
