Work is busy. My schedule is crazy. The kids are driving me insane. I have no “me” time. I need balance.
Sounds familiar? Yeah, it sure does. Let’s face it: LIFE IS BONKERS.
Adding to the chaos? The fact that every single moment seems to be “scheduled” with activities, deliverables, commitments and “must dos”. In fact, raise your hand if you feel guilty when you’re just sitting around and enjoying a quiet moment. Guilty!!
However, I’m a realist; no matter how many times I scold myself and make a promise to rearrange my priorities, the truth is, I’m a workaholic, helicopter parent and part-time obsessive-compulsive. And if life isn’t scheduled, I start to lose my grip on reality. Must. exercise. control. over. everything!
So, I’ve made a new promise to myself. It’s not about changing my ways, or priorities, or life. It’s about finding a daily dose of delicious; a daily reminder of love, luck and laughter. It’s about finding those moments that I’ll think about before I go to bed – and be thankful for another amazing day on this incredible journey.
It’s a reaffirmation that life – when lived in a robust, healthy and wholesome way – is simply delicious.
Over the past week, I’ve made good on my promise to find my daily dose of delicious. Here’s what I came up with:
Clockwise from top left: (1) A discounted designer handbag; (2) a little boy drinking cream soda… and pretending it’s beer; (3) a “Lena” necklace – on sale!; (4) homemade nachos from the grill; (5) a roller coaster I like to enjoy – from afar; (6) a little boy on a carousel. DELISH!
Another daily dose of delicious? HALLS Vitamin Drops – available in two NEW varieties: Tropical Pineapple with Vitamin D and Pomegranate Berry with Antioxidants. In addition to being delicious, they have one distinct advantage over other vitamins: they’re portable. So whether I’m shopping, avoiding crazy roller coasters or photographing toddlers on merry-go-rounds, I can throw a few individually wrapped drops into every handbag, and always have an antioxidant pick-me-up when I need it.
(And some days, boy do I need it.)
Since I’m all about spreading delicious vibes, here’s your chance to grab your own daily dose. Twenty (20) lucky Listen to Lena readers will receive a FREE full-size sample of HALLS Vitamin Drops.
*EDIT* Thank you for your interest; all products have been allocated.* The product will be mailed to the first twenty readers. Once in receipt, it’s yours to enjoy without further expectations. However, if you have a chance, be sure to tweet me (@Listen2Lena) to let me know what you think!
Special thanks to HALLS for sponsoring this sampling opportunity. Stay healthy friends – and tell me…
