This has been the week of exhaling for me. The project went live after 6-8 weeks of 60hr work weeks. I had a good talk with a friend – a needed one that I think cleared the air on a lot of things. The gallery show that I lead the committee for hosting was done. And a few other things came to fruition.
And I exhaled.
I ended up working from home on Thursday since I had a mid-day appointment. Then, I slept Friday. My body telling me that it was time to take care of me now that everything was done. And take care of me is exactly what I did.
This is the first weekend where I will not check email. I will not think about work outside of celebrating the fact I do not have to think about work. I’m going to relax. And unwind. And laugh. And be me. And just be.
I get to spend time with my kids without having them ask when I have to work.
I’m going to cook.
I’m going to watch movies.
I’m going to just exhale.
‘Tis what I’ve needed.
