I’m happy to report that the week of sloth and of me was a huge success. I sat around, watched TV, and sat around some more. I also played a random game of beer pong (with water) because the 21 year old is alive within me somewhere. All of the above means that I’ve found my mood much improved, and my outlook on recent difficulties brighter.
Self-care. The oft forgotten priority.
Here in the middle we’re still experiencing some warmer than norm temps, and I was able to get out on the tennis court a few times this week-I NEVER thought I’d be playing mid-November- and my favorite Chicago moment of the week was Friday night, playing under the lights with Chicago’s glow in in the background. It truly felt like a movie moment. What was your movie moment this week? It’s fun to think about.
I hope your week was equally restful and uplifting, despite recent events. Perhaps these little bits will help:
