It’s Saturday and I’m nothing but grateful to have two days of space. Forty-eight hours of time to utilize as I wish.
And I wish to center my head on things that bring me joy right now.
Which does not necessarily mean lying in bed all weekend drinking tea and reading books…although that does bring me quite a bit of joy, so there will be some of that.
Mostly it’s the freedom to quiet my mind from all the pushing, pulling, must-dos, and obligations that are driven by the needs of others during the workweek. I don’t mind working hard, in fact I generally enjoy really digging in, but there is such a thing and simply too much.
And lately that is the reality–Monday through Friday is too much right now.
And that’s okay, because there is a time limit on the weekday madness. I know precisely the day and time when my nice long break from it all happens. So it’s a matter of keeping the head down and pushing up the hill for just a bit more.
I can do it…I always do.
So what is going to bring me some joy this weekend?
Painting my kitchen. (It’s not really a big chore and it’s something I enjoy).
A few rides on the new Peloton bike.
Getting out my camera and taking some photos.
A long, hot bath with a book and a cup of tea.
Some work on the new book (maybe, we’ll see).
That’s it. I’m going to stay present in these hours and enjoy them as much as possible. I hope that you are able to find some time and space for yourself as well.
