She Looked upon her World, and pronounced it Good
Sometimes you’ve just gotta be nice to yourself. I took Friday off work and gave myself the gift of a long weekend in which I’d basically just do what I wanted. I even made a list – “things I’d do if I didn’t have to answer to anyone else”. The best part is I feel better – balanced, happy.
It was a timely reminder that the things that please me and make me feel happy and content are simple: restful sleep, some time alone, good (not fast) food, the company of some good friends, a chance to be outside, trees, dogs and (of course!) a good cafe mocha.
