As you read this post, I will be sitting on the beach enjoying the sun’s rays and the ocean’s sounds. I’m not trying to make you jealous, but rather it should serve as a gentle reminder to get out over the weekend and take in the sights and sounds that make you happy. I don’t even remember the last day that I took off from work to simply enjoy the day. Those rare days “off” during the week are usually related to doctor’s appointments and follow-up care. But no longer could I sit idle and let the summer keep passing me by. Today, I am looking forward to unplugging — not checking my phone a zillion times (maybe just once or twice), answering emails, or replying to texts.
With any luck, a day in the sun — removed from technology — will help me recharge my batteries and kick start my weekend. The beach and a good book are just how I like to spend my summer days, and I often wonder why I don’t make more time to do such simple things.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, filled with good weather and the time you need to feel rested and recharged!
