Snow Day, No Beating

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Yesterday was a snow day for the DC Metro Region - the Federal Government office of personnel management (OPM) and all the agencies that follow their policy were closed for the day. The office where I work is one of those agencies.

I stayed home and ate way too much chicken, watched a couple of good movies, never even opened my laptop, hemmed some pants and shot a video of the huge beatiful snowflakes from the comfort of my front porch (tried to load the video for you but it was too large for SparkPeople).

I did'nt exercise or stretch or even worry about it because I was tired and not motivated to do all that much except lazily enjoy the unexpected day off from work and the pure white softness of the heavy wet snow.

I am happy to finally be able to embrace the miracle of NOT beating myself about what I should have, could have been doing instead of just enjoying the moment exactly as I am in the moment.

    Sometimes we need to just take a day off and relax. It's good for the body, mind and soul if not done too often! I'm glad that you were able to enjoy the day off without any guilt!
