It’s easy to look around on a Sunday afternoon and think of all the stuff that needs done.
What’s hard is to look inside myself and see what needs done.
We’ve started scheduling alternating Fridays off. Best Beloved and her son and I rotate every third week. No work, no responsibilities other than what we choose. It’s a day to do what fills us, not others.
Weekends have been that way for quite a while. We don’t work weekends. Except, some things I do because they fill me, not others.
Don’t just plan days off. Take ’em. Decide what “off” means to you, and stick to it.
