I finally took my own advice. I threw caution to the wind and ignored the voices in my head telling me to go in to work on a Sunday to try to get caught up. Instead, I took my mom out shopping, chopped the rest of the snow and ice from my deck and am about to embark on a lazy afternoon sitting in the very welcome sunshine. Perhaps I will find myself with my Kindle in one hand and a glass of wine in the other. My options are limitless. I may even dig out my fire pit and recreate this lovely scene below. There is nothing better than coming inside after a day of fresh air and smelling like freshly burned wood.
Those inner voices are now quieted (with some well placed duct tape) and my head is free of disruptions. I have always had a difficult time silencing those inner distractions and letting myself just relax and enjoy the day, but I’m taking back control of my thoughts. Today is a day I put some real life back into my life and breath in the fresh spring air, feel the warmth of the sun kissing my cheeks and watch the day go by from the comfort of my deck chair.
Happy Sunday everyone!
