Lately I have had a lot of side work, which is always nice. But, it has meant the need to seriously structure my time. Today while showering the thought occurred to me that I have been running faster than was good for me. I thought of a few ways to slow down, giving myself permission to drop one project off my list for today. I later mentioned to my husband how I’ve been so good about sticking to my schedules, but that I was starting to feel like I needed to slow down. I’ve been nursing a cold for a few days now too, which didn’t help matters.
Well, as the day progressed I found myself stranded at a friends house with a van that wouldn’t start! After a jump didn’t work, I had to call a tow truck (i love my insurance company!). Another girl friend took my two-year old and me home. I had to laugh at all of it…The universe conspired to make sure I slowed down and took a day off!
When the universe hands you a “mental health day”, you take it! I threw the doors wide and let the cool wet breeze fill my home! I had the husband bring home dinner and I had a nice evening of not doing anything that was on my list. Hoping to get the van back tomorrow and will try to start running a little slower.
