Welcome Friday, I have been waiting for you. Today is the day I promised myself some freedom-- freedom from the endless to-do lists, need-to's and shoulds.
Today, I promised myself that I would mindfully enjoy every footstep I take, and have a date with discovery. Today I delicately indulge in the things I love. I won't just steal seconds and squeeze them in between the listed tasks. Today, I will revel and roll in them, remembering the gifts I receive from just breathing.
Today, I will take slower sips of my coffee, write longer without self-editing, doodle, knit, or make something more without self-deprecating. I will stop to take more photos rather than pass them by for reason A or B. I will read as long as I want without feeling guilty. And maybe if I feel like it, I will take myself to a movie, or out to lunch.
Today, is the day that I do what I please because I am the only one that can choose to make that happen for me, without guilt, worry or imagined obligation.
Today is about soaking in the light that falls on this earth, the one that moves effortlessly reflecting, enhancing, and highlighting the beauty that is already there.
Today, I am wishing that you find some time to do the same....
Have a great weekend
ps. I am going to do my best to document my free day today using Twitter (yes I tweet now thanks to Cory!), Instagram, and maybe even Facebook. I would love it if you stopped by...
