How to enjoy a day off... really.
I spent the last few months (and still am) ticking off my projects lists. You probably have these, too. Endless (seemingly) little to-dos, MUST-dos, that started off as a great idea (maybe when you read an inspiring blog?) and now plague you, making you feel guilty.
“Don't do it all in one day. Look forward to tomorrow, and plan for tomorrow, but try to live your life in the moment.”
But the sun is hitting that lounger just so, and the smell of coffee is in the air, as Sunday stretches out in front of me... dare I enjoy it?
YES. Enjoy it.
What's the point of all that hard work making your home a lovely place if you can't enjoy it once in awhile? Yes, the guest room closet is still a mess, and I look forward to sharing that triumphant moment with you when it's completely gutted and reorganized into a vintage style wardrobe mecca. But that's a chore for a rainy evening (or six).
My problem is trying to get everything done the second I have free time. But I cannot do it all in one day, and neither can you. So don't try. Don't do it all in one day. Look forward to tomorrow and plan for tomorrow, but try to live your life in the moment. For those non-moments, like taking your records for a spin or looking deeply into the eyes of your pet while you sit in the sun with a cup of coffee. I did. It was marvelous.
