My Life

Sunday Afternoon

IMG_1314

I had a pretty good weekend around here. I actually got out and went to brunch at Rays on the River on Sunday with a few friends. Food, conversation and multiple mimosas was the perfect combination on a chilly Sunday afternoon.

I needed that.

Sometimes I feel like I spend every day worrying about someone else. Whether it’s Pookah, CDub, my family or even my patients.  I never take time for me. Oh, I say I do, but really, even while I’m spending that time, I’m worrying about someone else.  Or what else I’ve got to do.

So this weekend, I TOOK  four hours. Just four hours to laugh and cry and commiserate with the women in my life who keep me sane. I don’t talk about them often, but those ladies are my shoulders to cry on. They make me laugh, they give good advice, and one is a substitute mother when mine is not near.

I’m glad they bugged me and rearranged THEIR schedules to include me.

I needed that.

I needed to be able to talk to my girls about where I’m going in life right now, what I want to do, what I’m tired of doing.

I got encouragement, ideas, support.

Sigh.

I needed that.

I didn’t take any pictures. Even though I had my camera with me.

For once, I didn’t worry about putting it on instagram or Facebook or twitter.  I just enjoyed myself.  I lived in the moment without the need to document it.

I needed that too.

How was your weekend? Did you get what you needed?

    Sometimes we have to do that, just unwind and enjoy people where you can be yourself, nothing expected. I had a good weekend.

    I hear you! We can get so caught up in “posting” life that we stop living it! Glad you had some legitimate “me” time.

    Sounds like you had a great weekend! I can’t complain about mine . . . especially since mine is extended due to Hurricane Sandy. Went to Church, took pics in the park and did some shopping. All around good times.
