So you noticed today’s post is late in the evening again. You may not even be reading this until Sunday.
No, I didn’t fall back into old procrastination habits or forget due to other events (although the last three days of consecutive Christmas parties has been a blast!). No, I did it on purpose.
I intentionally gave myself last night and today be social- wait for it- in the real world. I know! *gasp* I can hardly believe it myself.
Now I know some of you are thinking, “well, duh. You need that connection every now and then.” And others are thinking, “She must have a fever or something.”
Truth is, I needed to kick back with my peeps, raise my eyes from the keyboards and just hang out. And in the end, it was beneficial because the networking I did offline (is that even a real thing?) has opened up opportunities for future ventures, squared away plans for Blue Ridge, and allowed me to recharge the social batteries.
It’s okay to not do everything every day. It’s okay to relax and time for yourself in ways you don’t normally do.
Now I’m home with woolly socks, cat cuddles, some hot tea, and The West Wing. Hey, I didn’t say you had to stop all habits.
With a smile and a wave and an in-person hug,
And Frankly, My Dear . . . That’s all she wrote!
