Photo by Amy Treasure on Unsplash Shortly after Easter this year I got a very bad concussion that left me on full bed rest for three weeks and semi bed rest for another 3 weeks. For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.  For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.  For a very long time I have equated

Happy Friday and Have a great weekend!

I have been enjoying some time off and it was wonderful to sit outside and enjoy the sun. Feels like it's been forever since I could sit on my back balcony and just watch the tree branches dancing in the wind, their leaves lulling me into peacefulness with their whispers. 

I love impromptu picnics and here's hoping that the weather is good and that the photo above will become my reality. I know just the weeping willow that I can sit under....

Some interesting tidbits from around the web:

Don't these roast potatoes with coriander yogurt look yummie. 
Have you seen this wedding picture? Talk about a day to remember!
How about this drink to ease the summer heat. 
If you live in Montreal and like beer you won't want to miss the annual beer festival
If you thought that Lululemon was only for women guess again. Turns out they are dressing some pretty hot men. 

Have a great weekend!
