Like many, I often feel a need to take a me day, a vacay day, a holiday—any day reserved solely to relax—but work and life always manage to get in the way. 😉
As soon as it appears it might be doable, something comes along, such as an essential task, necessary errand, crucial project, or urgent situation. And then there are commitments, like posting on the ol’ blog on set days. As the saying goes, however, it’s all good. Well, most of the time. LOL
Given I haven’t had a me day in years (decades, as it were), I got to thinking about what the perfect me day might be.
It would entail (in no order of relevance):
- ignoring commitments
- forgetting about emails and messages and texts (once you get pulled into those, you’re a goner for hours—at least, I am)
- turning off all phones (I have three too many)
- eating fun/comfort food while sitting in front of the TV [finally] watching a show/series time hasn’t allowed for previously
- noshing on [a big bowl of] ketchup chips
- avoiding all forms of exercise
- not noticing dust or lint, or crumbs, veiling the floor or rug
- wearing a big, loose T-shirt and fluffy socks
- forgoing on make-up
- scratching a couple of scratch-and-win tickets
- watching the birds on the balcony
- taking a nap (what a novel concept).
The list makes for perfect me day—in my dreams. That’s okay, though. Nothing wrong with imagining what might be. In fact, taking the time to consider it is rather restful in itself.
If you have an opportunity for a you day, grab it, and enjoy. And on that note, back to work for yours truly. Let’s see, what to tackle first . . . 😉
