I’ve got into a terrible habit in recent years of stretching myself too thin. I can’t help but agree to things. I’m something of a yes man. What I found in Costa Rica was that I enjoyed not having anything too concrete in the way of plans, and not being at everyone’s beck and call because I was off the Internet and away from social media. I appreciate this is very much a “First World Problem” but what else am I ever likely to know?
Since I’ve been back, I’ve taken more time to myself, and I have to say, I am really enjoying it. I had some plans for today but they cancelled. Usually I would then pick up on my second offer for plans. There is always something I am missing out on because I have agreed to do something else. My diary is booked out on a first come, first served basis.
Instead of doing anything else today, I’ve made the decision to not get dressed, to eat as much leftover party food as I am able and to watch all four Shrek films.
Sometimes it is good to just take the time to yourself.
