Found Friday #38: The Gift of Time

It’s been a really busy year so far. I’ve not had a lot of time to just sit and do nothing, and neither has Graham. We’ve both been working hard, trying to balance our own goals and personal projects, time with friends, volunteer work, actual work, taking care of Annie and Gatsby, house stuff… It’s been a lot.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m fulfilled, and very happy, and I generally enjoy being busy. But sometimes, it’s just nice to take an afternoon and slow down.

Graham hasn’t had the chance yet, but I took advantage of my small to-do list today and used this afternoon to just relax.

I took a long nap, watched some TV, did a face mask, and ate snacks. It was amazing.

I’m feeling sort of guilty about it now, because there are certainly things I could have been working on, but I think it’s so important to give yourself time. It’s a gift many of us struggle to allow ourselves, though we tend to dole it out freely to other people, to work, to things that make us unhappy or stressed.

But our time is finite and valuable, and we deserve to have some of it just for ourselves.

My to-do list will be there tomorrow. Until then, I’m taking it easy.

  1. I get you. It is so important to take a break sometimes. Take care of yourself!
    Oh and one more thing:
    I am hosting a little blog party to celebrate 3 years of blogging and 1000 followers, and you are invited! The post will be live tomorrow (Sunday) at 8PM IST.
    Hope to see you there:)
