Today is excellent timing for a day of rest. Yesterday was one of those crazy work days that made me bone tired. Only two of us working, no time for lunch breaks, lots of appointments, the requisite number of idiots to appease, amazing sales, and at the end of the day all I could think was – so what. That’s tired.
“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
― Maya Angelou, Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now
So today I am officially withdrawing from my cares. Oh well, who am I kidding? I do this every day possible even without any cares to withdraw from.
It’s also time for our Canadian Olympic athletes to sit back and relax and bask in how proud we are of them.
Here’s to all the medal winners and all the participants. Just getting there is also amazing. Apparently bars in some cities opened this morning at 5:00 a.m. We’re all crazy.
So I imagine this is how many people will be feeling tonight –
“My head aches, my eyes burn, my arms and legs have given up, and my face in the mirror has a grayish cast. The bed, across the room, calls in its unmistakable lover’s croon, Come to me, come, only I can make you truly happy, oh, how happy I’ll make you, don’t resist, remember how you moan with pleasure the instant we touch…..
― Lynne Sharon Schwartz, Fatigue Artist
Ha – I love it. Someone else who is madly in love with a bed.
Have a happy Sunday everyone.
