Gratitude February – Day 18

Today I’m thankful for…


I took the day off work today, just to get some rest! I have a few outstanding vacation days from last year and I intend using them all! When you work at a fast-paced organization or team it’s easy to feel like things won’t go on smoothly if you take some time off, but trust me you’re not indispensable.

I fell into this trap last year, putting off my vacation days because I didn’t want to return to a backlog of emails and tasks.

I understand that it can be hard to take time off work when you don’t get paid days off, or have to pick that additional shift for extra income. I pray that if that’s your current situation this season passes quickly and you can take that much-needed break.

This year I’m prioritizing rest and taking days like these just to relax on the couch and watch cartoons with my little bestie, publish a blog post, do a little cleaning, and listen to some audio books (I struggle to enjoy audio books by the way). And it’s okay if I do return to a backlog of emails and tasks, la vie continue!

What are you thankful for today?

  1. Rest is good. You’ll come back refreshed and everyone will be happier for it.
    I’m thankful that we no longer have to put in a mask even in public places. What a breath of fresh air!💃🏻💃🏻
