Wake up, take a shower, pick out my clothes, get dressed (HURRY, HURRY), brush my teeth, run to the car, race to work, check my emails, go get breakfast, scarf breakfast down, sit in meetings, talk with customers, do some work at my desk, eat lunch fast (HURRY!!!)….PAUSE! This is the moment in my day when I stop and think, “are you going to rush through every moment?” My life went from being robotic to being non-stop! I love what I do (writing, that is), but JEESH, sometimes I don’t get to enjoy my whole day because I move through it so quickly.
I feel like my friend, Shipwrecked on Fabulous Island, when she had to close her door just to enjoy an old Snickers bar. Like, for real, I often think that I need just one extra hour to my night or just one whole day to do NOTHING. Like today, I usually post an interview, featuring some celebrity or super cool individual, but I honestly just couldn’t. I was so tired last night that I crashed and what was supposed to be a 30 minute nap, turned into a 3 hour vacation on my couch…that’s how tired I was! All of this made me realize, I need to sloooooow it down and just chill.
I thought of all the good movies that are out that I haven’t had time to see yet. So, you know what?! This Dreamgirl is taking herself on a date to go see a movie! I have SO many choices, I don’t know which to choose. Let’s see…hmmm…Batman? Savage? Bourne Legacy? Ahhhh, just the thought of being at the movies with over-salted POPCORN (lots of butter of course) and a slurpy makes my insides tingle (by the way, I splurge on the kid’s meal that comes with a small popcorn, fruit snack and an extra dollar for the slurpy…I’m not going broke on this date buying $7.00 popcorn lol).
I spill all of this to you, only to say this…make sure, you are at least trying to enjoy some personal time. When you work hard, you have to play hard also. I know that not everyone is having the best week or some may be going through big life happenings, but even in those cases, remember…you only get one life on Earth (unless you’re reincarnated as an Olympic athlete like I will be), so enjoy it and try to be thankful.
Enjoy your weekend everybody!
