I’m learning more and more how important it is to take breaks. Yesterday I took a break from blogging. I woke up, took a break from cleaning and headed to the mall with a good friend. We had lunch at The Cheesecake Factory after some light shopping and drove home in time for the kids to get out of school. Chase had two tests today and of course finals next week. My husband had two tickets to the Thunder game and I almost stayed home to make sure Chase knew all the information for the test. Then I decided to take a break from being a mom and schoolwork and I headed out for a great night. It’s necessary to step away sometimes. Putting every ounce of energy and time into something is not always productive or healthy. Making a point to do something fun and stepping away from responsibilities can be just what the doctor orders to cure all that ails you. Don’t be afraid to do something for yourself once in a while. Life is meant to be happy and you deserve to have a little fun.
