|SUE - a breast cancer survivor||
Ok, so TGIF what about Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday? It is amazing how we push to get to the weekend and then run ourselves silly on the weekend as well. Maybe I am just getting old but there are times I am content to just be at home. I don't want to go out to dinner, I don't need to see a movie and sometimes I just need to kick back and just be. Being in my 50's has afforded my the mental fortitude to stand up for myself and say, "No, Thank you but, no!" I can't add anything more to my plate. I love your friendship, your caring, the opportunity to be with you but I am just tired. IS that my age or our society? If it wasn't for text messages and answering machines, I don't know where we would be. Have we lost the art of conversation, and writing notes and making phone calls to stay in touch. Now be honest, have you ever had to make the obligatory call to someone you need to keep in touch with and then just been relieved when you get their answering machine so it shows you called? Well, I am showing my true colors but I think I am not alone. We have so much input on any given day and many times our jobs and positions require us to "BE ON" that sometimes you just need to not put makeup on, put your sweats on and relax. I laugh as there are some Sundays that after Church and stopping at the nursing home and calling family that we just VEG. I feel guilty as I look out my dirty windows and know there is so much to do but I just have to breathe. Are you in the same boat? This time it is physician heal thyself.... take time for yourself- breathe and learn to really enjoy where you are at this moment in time. I am preaching to me at this point, I am sure you realized. So back to it, TGIF and M and T and W and TH...a great day today!
