Realistically, last week was about five months worth of work crammed into five days. Four meetings, over 1,000 miles again on the road, Subway business [and drama], college games, meet-in-greets, and a budget to balance prior to a sponsorship package launch.
It’s been a little busy.
I’ve told myself for quite some time that I dream of making sure that my Sunday’s are days of which I try to slow down a bit. Primarily meaning not being in the field for work. This is something that I have been notorious for in the past several months. Get some stores done in the morning, go to church, work on stores afterwards. It’s a blur and without the separation of time between stores [sometimes being 14 days in a row] it really does decrease the quality of work by the 9th day.
I give that precursor in light of today. I’m, once again, sitting in the comfortable lounge chair in the local Starbucks [by the way, it was confirmed, there will be a second one opening in this town] enjoying a drink. However, I’d like to share with you my Sunday so far:
- Sunday School
- Carry-In Dinner
There has been zero work down today. In fact, because of how my apartment is now set up, I have no reason to bring work with me to Starbucks. After three years I now enjoy Starbucks for…Starbucks and free WiFi. It’s a liberating sensation of knowing that slowly, but surely, my life is starting to become more organized and structure. I don’t enjoy repetition, but I do enjoy being able to calm at least one day of my life.
Consider it building it off the post a few weeks ago about the trying to just slow down. It is possible, and it is worth it.
It’s nearly 6:00 PM CST, I’m still in this coffee shop. Enjoying a drink, and typing away my day. I’m going to go home and do a little soccer work, get my calendar ready for the week/rest of the month, light a candle…TURN ON THE HEAT, and just count my blessings.
Here’s to some peace and relaxation.
