Do you ever just let go sometimes?
I mean really let go? Shut off your phone, escape emails, not make any plans?
I may not be the best at detaching from the world, but I seem to have succeeded for the last few days.
Last weekend, after a long week of meetings, emails and too many errands, I took the time to really recover. Being a student, most of my weekend hours are clogged with school work and long hours of editing. But that weekend, I put my foot down.
These particular days, emails were left unread, school work was absolutely not happening and chores could wait. I grabbed a disposable camera (which was mysteriously taking up space in my apartment) and set out to discover more of the city I love. There were coffee dates, late nights at the corner pizza spot and evenings spent in Long Island City, watching the city escape behind the setting sun.
I challenge you to take a day for yourself--whether it be a beautiful weekend day or a mid-week personal day. Grab a disposable camera and set out to explore your city. You won't be sorry.
