Up with the chickens this morning and patio blogging again. But this time it’s from the comfort of my home. And there goes those amazing birds; my friends that wake me up most mornings with beautiful natural sounds. Have you ever paid attention to the singing birds in your life? I can only imagine that they are singing inspirational songs to a world that needs inspiring.
It’s Saturday and it’s going to be a good one. I’m not going to the office or doing anything that resembles work. Well, I do have a few house chores but that’s mindless. A sista is tired from having to battle and directing emotions all week, on top of keeping long hours. In law we file a lot of motions and it’s called “motion practice” but in family law it’s “emotion practice”; people in their feelings. I get that though. I’ve been there and done that.
Yesterday, I made a conscious effort to highjack my Saturday to do absolutely nothing if that’s what I chose to do. I worked really late for a Friday to make that happen and even missed entrepreneur’s happy hour. But, I’m chillin’ today even though my mind is trying to guilt me into doing something constructive. That’s the mind play you get when you’re a “workaholic”; you think you need to be busy all the time. I work a lot to handle my business but believe me, I like to play too! But today, it’s not about work or play, but about resting my mind. I’m taking my niece’s advice to “sit down somewhere.” She called me the other day to ask me if I was alright because I missed turning up the air for two days in a row when I left for work. You see, I’m slipping. LOL!
But, on a day like today, I could really use that “personal shopper” on my bucket-list. And that chef couldn’t come any sooner. I know I got big dreams but don’t sleep on me. While I’m exhausted and all, reflecting on my week with all its drama, at the end of the day, I did my part in sprinkling some good in the universe. My finest moment was getting a young mother’s child return to her after being in foster care a few weeks. Some cases I just get but some I’m chosen for and that makes me smile. So, I’ll rest today and take on the challenges tomorrow. You do the same my friends. XOXO ~Chante
