That’s what I said to myself when my husband left town for a guys weekend and my daughter had a friend over to keep her entertained so I could WORK. I had huge plans to get so much behind the scenes SableSol stuff done, it was going to be major amazeballs to get the 1,000 things scratched off the to-do list.
How many of you can you relate?
Work – on a beautiful, hot August day when you should be at the beach or spending time outside with your family doing something FUN. You remember what fun is, right?
Work – after spending last two weeks being your kid’s personal Uber driver by schlepping them to and from school (if school started where you live) and all of their after-school activities; all of this on top of your day gig and taking care of house and home. Then by Friday you’re so exhausted you’re in bed at 7pm. Come on, I know I’m not the only one.
Always working and doing makes for a tired brain, an achy body and eventually a grumpy human no one wants to be around. Hey, that can’t just be me either. There is always “stuff” to do.
STOP – Sometimes doing nothing is the best thing you can do; for you and those around you. You’re not being lazy you just need a freakin’ break. Go to the beach, take a walk in the woods, meditate, whatever your jam is, DO IT. Take care of YOU. Those closest to you will thank you for it. Trust me.
This picture? That’s me not working this weekend and remembering it’s ok to have FUN.
See you on the beach!
