I was fortunate enough to have this week off, which originally I was hoping to use to go to Florida to visit my family, but realized I really should learn how to relax. Therefore, I took the week off, with plans of laying in bed all day only to get up to eat, walk charlie and go to the gym.
It’s Tuesday, and I have yet to relax. Apparently, I have a problem with the concept. I spent Monday going to the grocery store, cooking a quiche, cleaning the apartment top to bottom, hanging things on the walls and going to the gym. Something possessed me to pick up some hours at a side job I have, showing apartments in the Upper East Side…so today, I woke up, walked Charlie, visited the doggy daycare I am considering for him, ate breakfast, went to the gym, and came to work. Granted, I enjoy showing apartments, but I have still yet to do any relaxing. My goal for the remainder of the week is to really do what I originally intended, but all I can think of is the things I would love to do, like for instance, go to Greenpoint and visit my favorite stores. I am realizing I have a serious issue at hand, one in which I don’t allow myself to decompress. I am constantly on the go and can’t stop. When I am working all I can think of is how much I want to relax. When I am relaxing all I can think about is all of the things I need to do. The cycle must end. It starts tomorrow.
