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?
