Finally took a mental holiday this past weekend. With school back in session (not just where I work, but my own personal studies as well), things have gotten pretty hectic and in turn I have been a little ornery. I’m not the kind of person that takes things out on others, but unfortunately that is what happened last Thursday, and I decided enough was enough. Of course I apologized to said person for my actions, and got out particular things that were bothering me and how I got “set off”, and all was right with the world.
However, not all was right with how I felt about it, and I promised myself that I needed to get my attitude in check. Since we had Friday off of work, I decided to finish my homework for the next week, which took all day. This left me with the weekend to do something that I don’t have a lot of time while I am taking online classes: I spent it reading.
I just love the mental vacation that comes from being able to escape into a good book! So much so, I read 2!! I’ve really gotten into “indy” authors lately, and they are a very inexpensive way to read books on the Kindle that my wonderful husband got me. Some of these authors have a great writing style (well, at least to me), and I can go through their books in a little over a day.
Moral of the story: When life seems to be too much and the world won’t stop to let you off, grab a book and escape from your reality for a while. I know it helped me!!
