I’m A Home Body

I confess I’m a home body.  After a busy week, there’s nothing like a couple days of nesting.  I love to cook scrumptious new recipes, bake golden desserts, write until my heart’s content and watch a couple sappy movies that ultimately make me cry.

This might not be your perfect day, but that’s not the point.  You know what re-energizes you.  Maybe it’s a football game, raking fall leaves or working on a craft-like project.  But in our 24/7 lives, we push what fills our bucket to the bottom of the list.

Are You On The Hamster Wheel?

It’s important to take time to do the things that make you feel whole again.  If you don’t life ends up feeling like you’re running in a hamster’s wheel.  When you’re in that state of mind even if you’re getting a lot done, you truly aren’t living.

This summer I wrote a couple posts about vacation and it revitalizing effect.  Well non-vacation time needs breaks as well.

Today if you get a chance, step off the wheel and focus on yourself for a while.  It’s not selfish, it’s necessary.  I look forward to hearing about your experience below or on Facebook.
