Day in the life

Day In The Life is such a beautiful idea. It is the perfect way to capture what your life is. I know the saying for our generation is that older generations told us nothing, but we told them everything. But I’m calling not true. Our days are filled with routine that is so ingrained in us that we forget to record it. It’s like trying to remind yourself to breath every breathe, but you don’t have to, you just do it and you think this is insignificant and doesn’t deserve attention. But it does. Every season is different and unique. Our days are beautiful and worth our attention. Our routines are who we are at our core and should be captured and shared.

I have a beautiful new routine that is a gift. A gift of years of hard work and hope paying off. A gift of a new, fresh start. A gift of a new life. If you look back at almost exactly one year ago, the difference in these two days are shockingly different. Both beautiful, yet two worlds apart.

This is my new, every day.

A Day In The Life
October 19th, 2017

8:52am
A slow wake up to our new life of eternal sunshine.

9:09am
Breakfast with my love.

9:54am
Time to feed my soul.

10:47am
Messy overwhelm.

Podcasts + cleaning. Clear desk, clear mind.

12:08pm
Pushing paint, creating, learning, exploring, making first.

1:06pm
Lunch with my BFFL’s.

2:50pm
Art, teaching, sharing, growing. Instagram is a large part of my community and day.

3:19pm
Work. Emails, writing, creating, customer service, meetings, ideas, work.

4:58pm
Break time. Getting ready for a night out. Getting dressed is now an event and not always part of my day.

5:59pm
Still working. Finishing the day, more ideas than time.

7:12pm
Sushi with friends. Laughter, story telling, sharing, loving.

Bed + movie.

Routine is a beautiful and dangerous thing. It can trap us and liberate us. Routine + Ritual. These are the days.

    Looks like a solid routine you’ve got there Lauren. The best part? You get to choose to structure the whole day as you please.

    Will be cool to see a day in your life this time next year. It’s certainly something I miss at the moment, hostel life is chaotic…and I always end up in conversations
