When I first thought about reducing my time committments, I thought it was a silly endeavor. I enjoy my life. Yes, I’m tired and can be grouchy, but isn’t everyone?
For this week, I’m going to allow myself the freedom of doing nothing. I won’t feel guilty about sitting on the patio drinking tea because I should be vacuuming. I will crawl in bed early with my puppy and read a book without having a to-do list running through my head.
Even as I type this out, I know this is going to be difficult for me. I’ve always been an overachiever. A varsity athlete through college. A straight A student. Every minute of my day is planned. It’s not something I’m proud of, but I’ve felt it’s necessary to reach my goals and make the most of my day.
