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.
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!!
