It's Me Again

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Today is a holiday in Germany - Ascension Day. I just got back from a good walk (with poles) with a friend. That felt good!

I did not want to make the mistake that I often do on weekends - make a huge ToDo list and then get frustrated with myself when I can't accomplish everything. I've been needing my weekends to rest and the list was just making me feel guilty for doing what I really needed to do.

So today I went easy on myself and have probably gotten more accomplished by cutting myself some slack. I slept in, spent some time on email, Spark, housework and paying bills. Now I feel like I'm ready to tackle some of the thornier issues on the list tomorrow.

Tonight I have papers to correct but I'm going to quit around 9 PM and read for awhile before bed. Oh, and write in my journal!

    Rest is every bit as important as all the other tasks and should be on your list of to dos! Everyone needs to spend time vegging, it is important to put all the stressful stuff and to dos aside and just live in the moment!

    Michelle, sounds like a well planned day and a little journal writing to be done as well!

    I can get more done when I go easier on myself than when I weigh myself done with my mind boggling, wishful thinking, to-do lists. emoticon emoticon

    Good for you! WE often sacrifice rest for what we "need" to do and often that is rest!!
