Winding Down for the Overachiever

holiday chaos

You guys – it’s almost the end of 2014! Can you believe it? I certainly cannot, but coming around to the idea that yet another fantastic year has passed. It’s been a wild ride all 12 months, and now I’m hunkering down for a good set of vacation weeks before the new year starts. But there’s a problem – how can I possible settle down and “do nothing” for a whole 2 weeks without feeling completely desperate for achievement!? Here’s my version of settling down without completely shunning the overachiever in you:

1. Schedule stuff: I don’t care what it is, but schedule some things for you to do while you’re on vacay. You’ve probably already done some of this, but I swear it’s calming to pencil in things like exercise class, a trip to the library, and an hour of career brainstorm for coming year.

2. Breathe through it all: there’s a ton of fuss around the holidays and with the cold, the stress, and the exhaustion, I’m not one to embrace the chaos. That said, it makes a huge difference to breathe through all the noise. Take mini breaks, give yourself a break, and be kind to others, it’ll help more than you know.

3. Look forward: wanted to take that hike or bake those cookies since 2012 but haven’t had the time? Do it now. Having things to look forward to is huge for both vacations and work mode. Peruse your Pinterest boards or think long and deep about what matters to you, and then go do a few of those things.

    She flicked off the lights and pushed him against the wall. A frame fell face down on the floor and shattered next to them. She didn’t allow him to take notice. She bit at his bottom lip, tugging his face, commanding him to follow her lead as she walked backwards down the hallway, deeper into the darkness, her darkness. And he, submitting to her bestial strength, simply weaved his fingers into the rust of her hair and bowed to her dominion. Like a lowly, unassuming insect, captivated by her hellfire glow.

    Halfway down the hall, she slammed him back first into the wall again, harder than before — no frames there that time. She clawed at his chest under his shirt as she ate his kiss once more and bit down his neck; the groans he breathed out into the obscurity flinched sharply as her fangs grew less and less forgiving.

    His buckle caught the flash of lamplight seeping in from somewhere outside as she tugged at the leather strap of his belt. She ran her fingers up and back down the front of his chest, back down to his waist, and unclasped his belt, plucking it from the loops with a single sliding pull. Feverishly, she tore his pants open and moved them, along with his boxers, down just enough to reveal his smug erection. With both palms on his board-firm chest, she smirked at him, kissed him once more, a little softer than before, and squatted down before him.

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
