Wow, nearly one week into the new year already! Time does fly when you're having fun I guess. I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend. Please excuse me if I don't reply to any of your comments until Thursday as I'll be away. Got to love being able to schedule posts!
On with today's topic!
I've mentioned before how I used to be really unhappy at my last job. It took so much out of me, that all I wanted to do was sleep all the time. Literally. I would spend an entire weekend in bed, every time I could get away with it. I'd get home from work, tired and miserable, and go straight to my bed for a nap. I do love to nap and lie in in general, and I thought it was only me 'rewarding' myself for what I had to endure for the day.
I didn't even realise that I was no longer doing the things I enjoyed. I preferred to sleep, and luxuriate in blissful unconsciousness. I was so tired, busy and frustrated that I didn't have time for balance. I spent most of my time ranting and worrying about work. I forgot what it was like to have fun.
Silly me. I'm so glad that's over. I've been spending the past year learning to be more like my old self again. I've been writing more and reading more. Recently I've been exercising again, and doing crafty things. I don't think spending so much time on myself is selfish. I noticed that the more happy I am, the more I want to give back, and spread that good feeling to others.
What are the things that you enjoy doing? When was the last time you made time for these activities in your life?
