When was the last time you had a peaceful Sunday morning? For me it’s been awhile since I had a relaxing Sunday like today. Weekends are usually hijacked by the errands and other obligations that necessitate us being up, dressed and out of the house, or just waiting for people to arrive. I have come to realize that the most valuable Sundays are the days you can just get up, laze and not feel obligated to do anything.
It’s a day to be treasured.
Last weekend it was hijacked by house projects that although voluntary, it requires one to be up and ready. Even though all I had to do was wait for the gardener, cleaning lady and fence man to arrive, one still had to be on the watch and make sure things were done correctly. Which means that you can’t just laze on the couch looking out the window at the big sky with the dogs by your feet.
It becomes an energized day with dogs on full alert at all the strangers roaming about which rubs out on you as well. You find yourself checking to see if the fence was done the way it was discussed, the dogs don’t get in the way, or just seeing that everything is in order.
This morning, it was an ideal Sunday morning. There was no one coming, no place I had to be, and nothing I had to do. It was truly a relaxing “me” time sort of day.
It feels absolutely great. Rejuvenating.
Alex and I make a mental note that more days like this are needed. Every now and then, it is absolutely divine to just stay home and laze. It clears the mind and regulates your heartbeat. I feel myself breathing slightly slower (although it could just be my imagination) and my mind is strangely clear. Stress relieve. What about you? When was the last time you gave yourself some rest? Have a lazy, peaceful Sunday everyone 🙂
