I left work at 4 pm on Friday knowing that I would be off the entire next week. Can I tell you how excited I am? I’m very excited. It’s more than the week before Christmas, it’s a week of taking time for myself and deciding what I’m doing next in my life.
Friday was the first day of my “staycation” and a perfect one at that! A walk to Asbury Park, dinner in an “igloo” and a walk home on the beach. The streets were aglow in Christmas lights and it was almost a “full moon!” I couldn’t have planned it any better or expected any more! It was a night of great food, good company and most importantly, love and laughs! It was the perfect way to begin my “staycation.”
Saturday held many interesting twists and turns but it turned out to be a wonderful night, having dinner with two good friends. So far this “staycation” is turning into an amazing time.
It’s Sunday night, the house is quiet and I’m all by myself. I spent the day doing “me” and it felt pretty good because I spent so much time on everyone else.
I thought about a lot of things today and realized that I haven’t spent enough time on myself. This week is about change. Things in my life need to change and I am forever grateful to have this week to decide what needs to change and to make a choice of what I want to change.
Here’s to beautiful “staycations” at home. I am incredibly grateful for this one. It’s been a long time coming and I have to believe that I deserve it.
