The older I get, the more I trust my instincts.
My instincts are telling me it’s time for a break. A break from the heat, a break from my routine, a break from – well, not breaking. It’s time for recess.
This all came to me yesterday when I was having my unplugged, recharging afternoon. It was a great time – honest. I did just as I’d promised myself: no TV, pc or external music even. I wrote letters, went for a walk, gazed at the sky and even daydreamt (or is it daydreamED? I can never remember).
Anywhoooooooooo… by the end of my unplugged, recharging time, I could tell I needed more. I realized that I was on the road to allowing my life to get a little crazy. So I looked at my calendar, lists, schedules and decided that even though they were all tight – NOT taking a break right now may end in results I won’t celebrate.
I’m not in control of much in the universe. I am, however, in control of my choices. So I’m choosing to make some healthier choices. When I was seven, someone else decided when recess happened. Not so much anymore.
I came up with a recess plan. I’m going to take my own advice . I’m also choosing to work a little harder THIS week. So next week I can take a break. It’ll be worth it – I know it will.
Anyone else out there ready for a break? How are you handling that?
