Sometimes you need to compromise in life.

A very wise woman once told me that it’s totally acceptable to take a day and just recharge. Sometimes our bodies and minds need a break. Life can get pretty crazy and if you don’t take some downtime your health an suffer. Thank you JoAnn.

This is contrary to how I was raised. I was taught, through observation mostly, that an idle day was a wasted day. The only reason to be at home and not accomplishing something was illness. And it better be a serious illness. The kind that keeps you in bed. Thanks Dad.

So today I compromised.

Dad, you would be proud of what I achieved this morning.

Jo Ann, you would applaud my slothness this afternoon.

    Much of life is about balance. Wasting some time doing nothing is sometimes part of that balance. It allows you to breathe..:)

    I, too, have had to cultivate a kind inner voice that allows me to recharge. And I’m telling you–the quality of my life is so much the better for it. Oddly enough, you come back and accomplish twice as much, I think. I hope you enjoyed every moment of it and indulge yourself again soon.
