R & R

I am finding myself regaining focus this week. Justin and I spent a week stay-cationing. That’s what we called it anyways. Instead of going somewhere on a vacation we stayed home. It was actually very relaxing and fun. We did go camping one night and kayaking. I loved kayaking. It was incredible. I am looking forward to floating the river a lot more in my lifetime.

I know before I took this week off I was beginning to get the itch of pulling my hair out. Work was mundane and boring. Life was becoming too redundant, and I was starting to loose focus. I know many of us get to a point like this. Life continues to move forward, but everything seems to become chaotic, meaningless, and forgetful. That is when a break becomes a need. It is so important to get out of our day-to-day rituals and do something for us.

That’s what we did. I mean we didn’t get to go away to the beach or the mountains (much more preferred), but we did get time doing things we love. I got a chance to sleep in a lot, watch movies I have wanted to see, visit friends that were waiting to be visited, and I even got to sew some. The most exciting was getting to spend every waking hour with the love of my life.

Now I am back to work, happy to be here (sorta), and energized. I Loved my stay-cation!

Ohhh...I like the idea of stay-cationing. I am going to do that! I constantly fly to all corners of the world for work, and the last thing I want to do is go somewhere else, so I usually don't use my annual leave days but give them away to others who need them (those who are ill and have run out of sick leave and annual leave). I will save a few this year for a stay-cation. Thanks for the idea!
