The last week have been long and emotionally charged. It is amazing how little it takes some days to make you think that running away to join the circus sounds like a good idea.
Yesterday, my son-in-law and I moved the large green sofa that I talked about in a previous post. It was very strange to leave it behind with its new owner. His obvious joy at being able to lay on the sofa and watch TV reinforced that change had happened yet again in the short span of a week and half.
I went to lunch with Kevin and Terry, had a glass of red wine, and great conversation. When it came time to go back to work, I decided that the best way to spend the rest of the day was doing stuff just for me. So, I packed up my laptop top and headed home.
I am one of those people who is always on the go. It takes something serious to make me take time for me. So, I read, talked to friends, ate taco chips and humus, then went to bed early. I didn’t blog, check email or, for that matter, turn on the laptop. I have to tell you a closed laptop is a rather lonely looking piece of equipment. Who would have thought it?
The golden nugget for today is “take 15 – 30 minutes every day so that you can appreciate yourself. If you don’t appreciate yourself, it will be hard to recognize when others do.”
