I haven’t really done anything in the past week other than watch episodes of Buffy. But I now feel much more ready to get back to working hard on my plans.
I spent the time allowing myself to do what I felt like doing rather than what I felt I should be doing. I’m not saying that that is possible (or even advisable) all the time, but I found that not forcing myself to continue with my plans gave me a chance to emotionally, mentally and physically catch up with all my ideas. I feel much more optimistic and had a few ideas just come to me while I wasn’t looking for them. While this break wasn’t planned, it felt completely necessary to realign myself with my goals and my words for this year.
I wasn’t looking for a break but clearly I needed one and am glad that I allowed myself to take one. Do you take breaks from the stress of life/plans/work often? Do you plan them or just let them happen?
