I have been reading a few posts about taking time off recently. How important it is... unplugging, getting away from it all. Recharging ones self. Turn off your phones, go away on vacation, give your clients to someone else to take care of. It all sounds great... if you can do it.
I don't do vacations well at all. And I certainly don't like to give my clients to others to take care of. I can't bring myself to do it. I don't know why that is, but it is. After 2 days I am ready to climb the walls, I want to be home, working. (Silly me, huh?) What I do pride myself on is being able to take a few moments here, a half a day there... doing something I really love.
Going out to the Bridgewater Country Fair and taking in the sights, now that recharges me! Watching my grandson win a prize, the delight in his eyes. Despite the fact a storm hit while we were there that cut our time short... I still had a magnificant time! Who wouldn't smile when they run into a team of oxen lounging about after a hard days work? Or a Highland cow and her calf, now that's a "make my day" kind of experience.
I will admit, about once a month I take a day and never get dressed. I lay around on the couch, watch really bad movies, barely turn on the computer and just veg. I deserve it.
I mean, look at these little piggies. Now who needs a vacation after that?
