I’ve written consistently about cleaning: cleaning out cupboards and sorting through friendships ~ deciding which to treasure and which to discard.
I’ve written on how learning to say “no” has made room to say “yes.”
To that end, there’s been a shift again, and I feel it. There’s an obvious one currently, a re-organization at work, and re-organizing at home. At work I’ve got new peeps to account for, and new generals to account to. That’s fine, it’s what I do. And, for the most part, I’m doing all I’ve done with the addition of – you guessed it – more. At home, renovations on the new-to-us house are coming along and there’s a move in our future, sometime in June.
In the meantime I can feel it ~ chaos swirls. Sleep evades and my mind spins.
My solution? A day off.
Tomorrow I’m stepping away – No schedule. No phone. No people.
Instead, sunshine, green grass, books and lemonade. Later a shower, the scent of sunscreen lingering on my skin and patio conversations with Hubbs.
Today ~ I’m not just remembering~ I’m reclaiming – her.
Can you see yourself in this post? When’s the last time you stepped away?
** Happy Memorial Day, my 8th as a citizen**
