I am lucky to live in a prime location in SoCal which means that for over a year I was running to every possible event held within LA and OC. At first it was freeing and exhilarating, but eventually I realized I was running around more because I felt like I was supposed to as a young 20-something, and less because I actually enjoyed it. It was if I had to prove I was young, fun and energetic, and I couldn't ever slow down or I would be wasting my youth. But it got to the point where I was about to punch someone in the face next time I got an invite, just because I felt so ragged; I couldn't keep up with that frantic pace. So I slowed down, and the first couple days spent at home on my couch felt like nirvana. So yes, please enjoy your surroundings, make the most of them, but also take that time to go to your favorite spot to read, or pull out your favorite guilty movie and bum on the couch.

How funny, I totally did this in my own room! I painted the walls Behr's Sparrow Gray, and did my trim an Eggshell and kept all my bedding and headboard bright whites. I love the look, but I'm starting to want more from my room in terms of color. Do you think I could add artwork with hints of turquoise and not have them war with the gray and white colors?
