For the first time in forever, I did absolutely no work over the Christmas break. I honestly can’t remember ever doing that before. Seriously. And I cannot tell you how great it feels. My brain is quiet. It’s never quiet, but it is now. I’m refreshed and rejuvenated. Won’t last long, but that’s okay. I’ve had a long overdue rest and that’s all that matters.
I rarely turned on my computer — managed my social media on my phone and frankly, I wasn’t nearly as active as I usually am. Other than some interesting documentaries I watched virtually no television. I did see a few good documentaries in the theatre as well, spent time with friends and family, cooked a fair bit, ate, read, walked a lot and slept. Bliss.
The only thing I didn’t do — which I had planned to do — was go through my drawers and closets and do a major purge. It just seemed like too much work.
That will be a task for January. I’m keeping it simple this year. One item on my to-do list at a time. I’ll bet I’ll get much more done than I would if I had a laundry list of chores — which can be so daunting, you do nothing. At least that’s what happens to me. Stay tuned, I’ll let you know how I do.
And now it’s time for me to get back to work. The party’s over.
