A Complete Rest

Last week completely kicked my ass in more ways than one. The week was rough, emotionally and mentally draining. By the time the weekend rolled around, I desperately needed to check out. I needed time away from ghosts from the past, the situation I'm dealing with at work, and some other personal things that were holding my sanity hostage.

Sometimes the most urgent thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest. ~Ashleigh Brilliant

A complete rest was in order. For the most part, I disconnected. I turned off my phone and largely ignored my computer. I had a sleepover with my fourteen year old cousin where we painted our nails, watched chick flicks, and ate cookie dough. I had brunch with one of my long-time friends. I attempted to be crafty while assembling centerpieces for a friend's baby shower. I slept. A lot. I had a great talk with a faraway friend who always understands. I took a nap on the couch while "watching" a movie. I ate cereal for dinner and made no apologies for it. I was reminded that its all going to be ok.
