We’ve never been a family who understood the TGIF mindset. For generations we were the weekend and evening workers.
We covered all shifts, we were there when other folks needed time off for holidays with their loved ones. It’s how we were raised, it’s what we instilled in our children.
So, it throws me off when I unintentionally end up with a Sunday off. It also reminds me of how important it is to rest.
I mean, I know it. I live for it. I’m just not always able to do it. To do it with intention.
All I have to share today is this:
take care. Of yourself.
It’s okay to say “no” when you feel like a request is simply too much. It’s fine to be selfish. Because in truth, you are NOT. You are caring for someone who is valuable and precious. You are caring for You.
It can be ANY day, and it doesn’t have to be expensive or commercial or extravagant. But do make it special. For you.
This is perfection. For me. Please find something which speaks to you. And pursue it. Sit with it. Be there. Be You.
