My day off

“Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”

I took the day off today and tomorrow.  I feel so happy. I’m learning the importance of self-care and being in tune with my mental, physical, and emotional needs.  I woke up early still but an instant smile and a light- heartedness over flowed within me when I remembered I could use each hour in the next 48 hours the way I choose. I could be productive, I could be lazy, I could do something halfway in between.

That’s  exactly what I did. I took time to handle things that are important to me and I took time to rest- to let my mind wander, then caught it right on time before I started thinking of responsibilities and work. I must say I felt a little guilty laying around not doing anything. But why should I feel guilt? I think we’re so programmed to always be on the go that we find it difficult to relax, to not have to be busy doing something every waking hour.

So I’m really at peace today. So grateful for being able to take time for me, to de-stress, to enjoy the sunshine, to use time how I want.  I’m very happy today.  I hope the same for you. I hope you take time to do you.
