Come sit down a bit and tell me — how do you unwind?
It’s been a really crazy week. I didn’t feel the 3-day weekend. This week, I left for work before the sun came out and would leave work when the stars were out. Basically, I had absolutely no dose of Vitamin D from the sun this week. Craziness.
This week was also the week when Timmy started getting up in the morning earlier than usual, watch me prepare for work and hold on to me oh so tightly, crying and begging me to stay home. Oh how my heart breaks everytime he does that.
So yeah, it’s been a really tough week. How was yours?
Monday was so tough I ended the day with a Whiskey Sour.
And I don’t even drink.
I ask again: How do you unwind?
Do you go online and surf the net? Do you grab a cup of coffee, escape to a quiet corner in a coffee shop and catch up on reading? Do you party with friends till the wee hours of the morning? Do you hide under the covers and catch up on much-needed sleep?
I usually play The Sims 3 to unwind. But since my personal computer conked out two weeks ago, I had to resort to other ways. So I went back to reading again, since I went on a little pause mid-August. Too much stress. But I’m back on reading mode, thank goodness.
The Whiskey Sour picture above — I don’t usually drink alcohol. I can’t even recall the last drop of alcohol I had before the whiskey sour. But my sister was making one at that time and she asked me, “Do you want a taste of my whiskey sour or you want your own?” Without hesitation, I said “I want my own!” One was enough.
Another way I unwind is to write. But I’ve been so busy I haven’t even had time for that!
This week has been so crazy, but the truth is, it’s been mighty productive. Sometimes you have just to reframe how you’re looking at things so you don’t get pulled down too much.
Life is pretty awesome.
Because yeah, no matter how busy you are, it’s ultimately YOUR choice whether you get sucked into the vortex of self-pity and misery. OR you get sucked in a little bit (that’s permissible) but pull yourself out and chill. Sometimes with a Whiskey Sour (which I quite enjoyed).
So yeah. Life is pretty awesome. Chuck the to-do lists for now. It’s a Friday night. The to-do list can wait till Monday.
For now, we unwind.
