Last night, I decided that I would take a mental health day and play hooky from work today.
I won’t lie: the predicted 58-degree weather might have had something to do with it. But really, I’ve been feeling overworked, over-scheduled, even over archeried (yes, I just made archery into a very Lewis Carroll-like verb).
The next few hours will be spent at an insanely awesome cafe in Alexandria, VA. I’ve been crafting my perfect day for the last five hours: a hot cup of tea followed by some time at the gym, a barre class, a long hot shower, some reading, a delicious breakfast, a meditation session, and a sunny drive filled with good music.
Yeah, I’m totally in the flow right now.
And I can tell you what the rest of my day will bring: more awesomeness. A walk on the National Mall. Lunch at a museum. Light. Joy. Laughter. Freedom.
I’m going to order up days like this more often.
What is your ideal playing hooky day like?
