Or to read a good book, give your honey a smooch, read a story to your child, sit on your porch and enjoy a cup of coffee.
For the first time in weeks, I don't have any where I have to be on a Saturday morning. Yes, the house needs cleaning and laundry needs done - those things are always there for me. I'm sitting here drinking my second cup of coffee and I feel guilty that I'm not mopping the kitchen floor already and laundry isn't going and my bed isn't made.
WHY? Why do I feel that way and why do so many other women with hectic schedules feel guilty about taking some time to just - be still and enjoy some of the simple joys of life? We have some odd requirement that if everything isn't crossed of our "to-do" list that we don't deserve some time to just enjoy a few minutes of quiet.
Silly isn't it?
Yet...I sit here, just about in a panic because I'm not multi-tasking. Did you know multi-tasking doesn't really exist? We really aren't capable of doing multiple things well and give each task our best effort. My old therapist told me that.
So what are you doing to enjoy your life today?
(I need to get the laundry going!)
