Sometimes I find myself all wrapped up in the things I think I "have" to do. Run errands, water the garden, clean the house, grocery shop, clean the car, meet all my work deadlines and so on. Often my to-do list can be multiple pages & just down right exhausting.
It can be overwhelming & it's at these times, I remind myself that what I can do today is good enough.
Maybe my blog doesn't "have" to be done at 8 am. Maybe 4 pm still counts. Maybe my car (or my house) can go another day (or week) dirty.
Maybe none of it really matters. Maybe my sanity & allowing myself some downtime is far more important than any of it.
I have a feeling when I'm on my death bed I'll appreciate the allowance of just being over doing. I'll appreciate the days I played rather than stressed, relaxed rather than worked, enjoyed rather than fretted.
Today is one of those days. And I just wanted to remind everyone (myself included) that this is ok. Not only is it ok, but it's a necessary part of life.
We are so busy "doing" and glorifying "busy" that we forget how important relaxation is for the body, mind and spirit.
I am taking an hour to just be & soak up the sun in my beautiful backyard. Now it's your turn - what can you put off on your to-do list today & replace with some much needed dowmtime?
