    Definitely learned to fit "me" time in for working out! So important like you said! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    This is wonderful advice to live by – "There won't always be a plan, and that's okay"

  3. Oh that first one and the last one – so true! You'll always have times of things that are unplanned/stressful but you've got to learn to just roll with it. That's one of the hardest lessons to learn!

  4. I've learned that although I have so many dreams, it's still important to focus on the day to day and making myself happy. If I can't be happy with myself first, I can't be there for anyone else like I want to be.

  5. Even though I know worrying and stressing won't change anything, sometimes it just spirals out of control and I can't help it. Then I move on to "this, too, shall pass." LOL. It's a good reminder that you can't always control it!

  6. Love love love this! It's so exciting to be exciting about the future, but be totally happy in the present as well. And can we talk about how amazing you look in a crop top right after having a baby!? Gorgeous! <3

  7. "There won't always be a plan, and that's ok." That's a life lesson I'm working on right now… It's really, really hard for me to live without a plan. (I mean, it was WAY more intense for you with that envelope, but still.) Right now I have no plan, no end of the tunnel, no huge goal that I hope to meet by XXX. It's weird and scary and kind of freeing but also really unsettling. But sometimes that's ok because without a plan constricting me I feel like I can breathe a little bit. It's a weird feeling to come to terms with…

  8. All are so so SO true! Although it is nice when the boys are done with school and you can afford more. It also helps you because you already know how to live on less and often times I keep putting some of that money away to save.

  9. This definitely hits home! I stress a lot, but need to realize that it is ok!

  10. I've learned about worrying less over the past year or so. It's important to recognize that some things are out of your control. "Go with the flow," as they say!

    Love that picture, too! šŸ™‚ Being physically active is SO important to well-being. Even just a 20-30 minute walk to clear my mind makes all the difference in my life!

  12. Whenever I'm stressed, I always find that sweating it out is the best way to relax! This month I learned to be present and try and unplug more often at night so I can relax and talk with my boyfriend instead of both of us in silence staring at our electronics.

  13. Such a beautiful month of growing, learning, and loving šŸ™‚

  14. What an amazing photo! I love looking forward to the future, but loving where I'm at as well.

  15. That picture is precious!

  16. Lindsay says:

    sweetest picture!!

  17. Kait says:

    You know what I learned in March? You just had a baby and you look freaking amazing in a crop top. Love this photo!

  18. Love the photo! YES to living in the moment. You know it's been a big deal for me lately too. šŸ™‚

  19. Steph G says:

    I love this! You had some crazy life changes this month. We know we will be moving somewhere new in the fall, so I'm living in the moment and enjoying this place, but also, I'm excited for the future šŸ™‚ Cheers to you friend!

  20. Emilie says:

    I love this! I definitely need to remind myself that not always having a plan is okay.

  21. awww that photo is seriously precious. and yes to being physically active. exercise is so much more than weight loss to me. it helps me sleep and clears my mind, which is enough of an advantage on its own.

  22. Great advice! I think walking outside just really clears the mind and helps me to relax and de-stress. I love the cute photo! šŸ™‚

  23. I love this post! I'm a fan of afternoon tea instead of coffee too!

  24. Living in the moment and being excited about the future is always a hard one for me. But since becoming a parent, I can balance the two far better!

  25. Working out is a huge stress reliever! I love a good sweat sesh!

  26. March was SO busy this year!!! Its always nice to put things into perspective

  27. You're so right–not everything can be planned. Yay for spontaneity! On a wildly different note, I learned in March that my quiet times are best taken during lunch (when I'm not getting lunch with a friend). I'm wide awake, and it forces me to slow down for a moment in the middle of the day. šŸ™‚

  28. Amber Thomas says:

    Oh why does worry make us think that we're so capable at changing the future when it is SO WRONG? And how can I be more careful to catch myself in the dangerous cycle of stress-y control freak mode!?! I think by (as you mentioned) being excited about the future and thankful for the present. It helps to stay grounded where you're at, know where you're going, and cultivate joy in both places. šŸ™‚

    I learned the same thing about being active in March (and this month). We've been in a really stressful period at work and I found that moving and keeping active has been helping me stay sane.
