Free Spirit

Free Spirit tee

I used to be a free spirit. I was completely spontaneous, flitting around from one thing to another as plans changed. Going with the flow never bothered me.

I didn’t stress much, I wasn’t organized (with my time or my life in general), and I was rarely on time. Relaxed was my middle name.

I’m not exactly a free spirit these days. In fact, there’s not much free spirit left in me at all. And while in some ways it’s a good thing. I’m now quite timely and usually early, and I’ve become much more organized. I’m now a planner – I like to know what’s going to happen, and at what time – and my life feels more doable because of it. And yet part of me misses the spontaneous girl I used to be.

This shirt is my little reminder to bring her out more often. To roll with it when life happens and it looks different than what I expected it to. I want to drop all the scheduled things we’re supposed to be doing in favor of a last minute night out whim – at least every once in awhile.

Between co-running a small business and parenting three busy kids, we are not at a stage of life that makes being spontaneous easy. But somewhere deep inside my free spirit is still there, just waiting to have a little fun.

If you, too, want to remind yourself of your hidden free spirit self, you can find this top at the shop, or online here.

  1. Oh Cate you are a free spirit in this tee. The graphic tee suits your personality and the bohemian vibe you got going here. Love those Converse sneakers, too.

    Welcome by. I started a linkup on Thursdays and I would love for you to join me tomorrow and every Thursday.

    Thanks and Happy Hump Day! Ada. =)
