Every year, when I finally go away on vacation, it is usually about the end of the second full day that I say, “I could get used to this.” Yesterday and today, I have done nothing that I didn’t want to do. I have had a fair share of relaxing these two days and look forward to several more days.
I need the time off. I need to relax. I need breaks as much as the next person. However, the workaholic in me rarely takes them. Yes, I do go on vacation a couple times during the year. However, I very rarely take days off. I work and work until I feel as if I’m going to snap.
When I go away on vacation, the tension in me begins to unwind. I feel relieved and kick myself for not taking more time for myself. The older I get, the more that is needed. Maybe I will begin to take the time coming to me this year. It’s a new year. Why not be a new me? 🙂
I have to admit that taking a “staycation” has been a bit difficult, though. I am so tempted to go over to the office and see what’s up, what I can do. I’m intentionally staying away, though. I think it’s important for me to have this break.
So, there you have it. The end of the second full day and I’m beginning to feel relaxed. Yee Haw! Or, should I say, Sigh. Ahhhh.
