Holidays – your own interpretation

I love holidays – not travel holidays which people will look at me and go “HUH?”

So many people wish to travel, save up so many dollars and for 2 – 8 weeks a year they take time out to visit those places they have wanted to travel to for years and jam a whole heap of “work” into a small space of time.

Me?  I’ve never wanted to travel, where I live is where I love to be.  So.  Rather than save up dollars and vacation days with my employer I make it a priority to take one or two days off a month, preferably before and/or after a weekend.

Why?  Well first I’d like to sleep in an extra day but mainly because I need to regenerate.  To get my bearings and find a way to enjoy the life that I have right now.

You could be going through a hard time at work or a hard time with the family at home all the time and you don’t have any “ME” time but just making the time is beneficial for so many reasons.

You can sleep in, you can take your kids to school and come home and go back to bed.  You can meet up with friends you haven’t seen for awhile who are also home; you can go to the movies (yes by yourself); you can go to a shopping centre and window shop before stopping for lunch at a cafe and just “chillin” (yes by yourself).  You can do whatever you want.

OK so yes, plan for holidays, travel, do it all but remember to take a TIME OUT for yourself and just BE!  You’ll find yourself enjoying it more than you thought you would.

Today is my ME DAY and I’m loving every minute, I made muffin quiches for breakfast, went shopping, sat and watched a movie, washed some clothes and am now sitting at my computer just enjoying the fact that I can write my blog.  It doesn’t happen often but when it does I make every minute count.

Do it!  You’ll wonder why you didn’t do it earlier or more often!!!

Have a great day….. at work!!

I am having the best time of my life. I'm 50 plus, divorced, two grown children and just the opportunity to have a life after so many years of scrimping and saving is well worth the time it took to get here. I have a fantastic family with great family values and spending time alone is certainly something I enjoy which a lot of people find difficult to handle. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and cannot imagine living anywhere else. Strangely I don't like to travel and have no plans to do that in the future - I say strangely because so many people can't understand this, wanting to travel and experience other cultures - not on my agenda. I love to write and writing romance keeps me from going completely mad. I have found a job that I absolutely love and there are times it affords me time to type out my stories since I write all my stories by hand - I'm never without a pen or book. My motto is ... "People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" I've had many people who I can't even remember their names tell me that I made them feel good and for that I am truly grateful. I have become an avid reader of Rhonda Byrne's 'THE SECRET', "THE POWER" & now 'THE MAGIC". Whether you believe or think it's a load of @#$!@ - I do know that it works for me and my life and I am all the better for it. The Law of Attraction is something very close to my heart and I can honestly say with certainty that it works for me. I am truly grateful for the life I have been given and continue to enjoy. You can't go wrong when you just learn to say "thank you".
