Embrace the Staycation

 

I'm really bad about making time for myself. I start my weekdays at 5am and am going until I crawl into bed around 10pm. And the weekends when most people relax? An opportunity to fit in all of the errands and other tasks I couldn't fit in after work.

But this past weekend I had nothing on my to-do list except to hang out in a cozy home on a lake with 11 beautiful ladies, while eating way too many delicious treats, staying up late chatting and focusing on time with God.

And it was perfect. With being out of my day-to-day, I had nothing else to focus on but enjoying the beautiful sunset Florida showed off with on Saturday night. I found myself relaxing and renewing for the first time in months; I didn't even know how badly I needed it until it was thrust upon me.
