Today I am thankful for vacation. For me, vacation isn’t about having to jet off to some glamorous place, or even being away from home at all. It’s about giving my brain and spirit a break from work. To focus only on things I enjoy. And often the best vacations are stay-cations.
I’m in the middle of one right now. I’ve slept until I woke up naturally. I’ve caught up on my Hulu queue. I’ve crocheted and been to Michael’s more times that I should. I’ve read when I wanted. I’ve caught up (mostly) on email and Facebook) But most importantly I’m not imposing any ‘musts’ on myself, except that I must go with the flow and do whatever I feel like doing at the moment. And it’s been great.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the “rat race”, and simplifying my life is one of the very things that “Going Country” means for me. I’m thankful for giving myself the time to recharge and feel like “me” again.
