The past few days have been glorious. I have done absolutely NOTHING and LOVED it. I worked in the yard, I organized some closets, I had a five hour spa day (heavenly), I watched movies, made amazing polenta, walked in the rain, and enjoyed myself immensely.
I do feel refreshed and relaxed. I am preparing for an important annual meeting of our town home association (I am the board president) which is being held tonight. It seems we will have a good turn-out, which hasn't been the case in the last few couple of years. We are a small association, only 16 units and I have worked diligently the last year to build community and encourage more communication among neighbors. We have an important vote tonight to create a capital reserve fund for future improvements. I have my fingers crossed.
One thing is clear, I need to take more of these breaks - it's just healthy. One of my 2010 intentions is to practice "self-compassion" taking time is an important piece of taking care of me. I feel very blessed and filled with gratitude for my life, my friends, my family and all that I have been given. Namaste.
