Some scenes from our very own day drive mini vacay's
When I was in Sausalito I worked six days a week often. It's easy to be overwhelmed when you're busy: mom, partner, lady boss, relationship guru and homemaker. I learned a valuable lesson when losing my 32 year old brother: you never know. So all the BS of "I'll work hard and then...", "I'll do this and then...", "I'll do that and then..." became nill and void. I began to live differently even with my overly busy schedule. I would do my work day, then work a little longer so I could complete homemaker tasks and chores, that way on my day off I was really off. Often on my one day off I would not do chores, turn off my phone, pack food and we would go on day-long mini vacations. You know how when you're on vacation you usually give yourself permission to stop? Well don't wait till you have money or wait until you have time. If you like travel and adventure, be creative and do it now. I went from one mini vacay per week to now two per week. I've gotten my work week and chores compressed into five days and I can be off grid for two. Pack your food, drive n stop, drive n stop. It's fun. Or just turn off the phone, pretend you're gone and stay in your pjs all day. Whether your life is long or short I say live it how you want right now, quit waiting!
Even if your tired, get your stuff done on the work days. Then take your next day off all the way off! It actually lifts your mood and gives you more inspiration to keep on keeping on. :)
