High Five For Friday

Whenever I sit down to write my Friday post, my first thought it always thank goodness it's Friday.  It's amazing how the week can just fly by, yet feel entirely long and full in the same breath.  My day to day is so busy and so full that I so look forward to the weekend where things move at a more leisurely pace, more importantly my pace!

Here's a few moments I caught in my week that just appeared to fly by!

1|  Last weekend we had a training seminar for work.  It's always filled with a ton of great training and inspiration, but it's also a time for some recognition and awards.  I found out last weekend that I made it to the next and final round of a company wide competition, which is super exciting!

2|  Part of our weekends training was all about empowering and dis-empowering beliefs.  It's amazing what our minds can do, and when I ran across this earlier this week I thought it was a good reminder.  For how many times we all tell ourselves we should have, could have, or would have, we need to instead tell our selves, I did, I am, I can.

3|  So often I feel guilty or bad because I rarely remember to snap photos, or that it's been 2 weeks since I've posted something on instagram, but watching this video didn't make me feel so bad anymore.  It's crazy to think that we are really the last generation to know what it was like before everyone had a phone on them all the time.

4|  Can you believe this is true?!  It's scary and exciting all at the same time!

5|  I was able to reconnect with an old friend this week and am super excited to get to meet up with her this weekend.  I am terrible as staying in touch with people, it's something I always vow to be better at, but never seem to really accomplish.

Anything fun on your agenda this weekend?  Or is your agenda purely to not have an agenda?  Sometimes that's the best part.  I hope we have another fantastic fall weekend ahead, why is it that fall always seems like the shortest season ever?  So not fair!  Happy Friday!
