Monday Morning Blues
Good morning on this back to work Monday. These weekends just fly on by, don't they? This is especially true on my cooking weekends when it feels like I don't have any time for myself. But now, I don't have to cook for the next two weeks which makes it worth it. And, I didn't sleep very well last night, so I'm not quite up to par. Need a couple of iced coffees to get me going.
"Take time every day to do something silly".-- Philipa Walker
Have you ever noticed that spring fever tends to bring out our longing and our sense of needs for attention, play, and laughter. Some of us may be afraid to express those needs we don't want to be considered childish, so we keep them bottled up inside of ourselves and instead...and all we can express to others is frustration. I totally "LOVE" being silly. If only you could see my office...filled with little dolls and animals...all of which sing and dance...and sometimes I turn them all on at once just to cause a stir. And, with each one singing a different song, it sure does cause a stir. Those who don't know me would never guess that this is the office of a 63 year old woman.
So, Ifyou have spent the winter months all uptight and frustrated, let Spring be a reminder to give yourselves a break from work and study. Laugh a little...and make sure you share that laughter with someone else. And when you do, don't be surprised to find yourself getting back exactly what you need.
