I find that I have to make a conscious effort to give myself permission to relax. Yet when I am busy, all I want to do is stop and take a nap, watch TV or surf the internet. I feel like I should always be doing more or working more or making progress of some kind. That is a good attitude to have but there has to be a balance or I will never be able to be happy and enjoy where I am today.
And where am I today? I am in good health, have enough money to support myself, have a roof over my head and all the basic comforts of home. I have my animal companions that give me a purpose and something to care for. I have goals and plans. I have family and friends and things to do in the community. I would say I am happy right now.
I think I will give myself permission to hang out with my dogs and watch some internet TV. After all, tomorrow will be here soon enough and then it's back to work to make the money so that my dogs and cat and I can enjoy this life we have together.
