Sometimes, I need a Time Out

Last night, after work, I went to my friend's house. No plans really, though I did sew a journal while we visited. It was amazingly relaxing and we gabbed like a couple of hens! Yesterday at work, in anticipation of spending my evening at a girl's night, I didn't feel the exhaustion that I've felt all week.

All week, I've been on a slippery slope to depression. Sinking deeper with each breath. All I wanted to do was sleep. I could see all this going on, and I know how dangerous it is for me to get there... But the "a-ha" moment was when my best friend asked me "have you even left the house while I've been gone this week?" I said "yep, I've gone to work every day!" But we both knew that's not what he meant.

So off to my girlfriend's I went... and I made no other plans to be home before bedtime. Her home has a healing air to it, and I felt so relaxed, yet energized. That makes no sense really... but it's true.

My time out was wonderful, and I'm already anticipating the next one. Tonight, I am planning to stay in and clean the house, possibly make some journals. Time to do some work... and I'm energized to do so.

Life is good! Don't forget to take care of you!

We do sometimes need a "time out". I am glad you were able to get one and are feeling energized.

I hope you'll stop by and comment on my blog today. You might be surpirsed when you do!
