[ All frocked up and ready to go ]
Does life ever feel like it is whizzing past and no matter how hard you try you can’t seem to make it slow down? That’s how I have been feeling lately. I have had a hard time relaxing as if I’m on the couch I feel guilty about not being in the study working on growing my business, and if I’m out having a great time I worry about being hung-over or tired the next day and wasting time that could be spent doing anything work or business related. I admittedly feel like I haven’t been living in the moment.
Not yesterday though. The race that stops a nation – aka the Melbourne Cup – also seemed to stop my world for one day so I could let my hair down, have some carefree fun and live completely in the moment. I threw caution to the wind and had one of the most fun days imaginable. I bet (& won!), screamed horses on, drank tonnes of champagne, laughed for hours and didn’t give a second thought to hangovers, my business or any of life’s little stresses.
I think everybody needs days like those so I encourage you, if you’ve felt like one of life’s spectators recently not an active participant, put a pretty frock on, grab some girlfriends and go and throw some of your own caution to the wind – because even if it’s just for one day, you deserve a little fun.
Here is some of the fun & fashion from the day.
p.s I ended up putting a bet on the race by picking my favourite number (3) and won – I said it was a great day didn’t I!
