When you catch yourself, it’s hard not to judge. 

Today I woke up for the first time in a long time with nothing pressing me for my attention. When I say that, I’m referring to work. Meaning, I’m current. What?… 

When I started imagining what Kevin and I could do with our day, thoughts of cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, and going for a walk ran through my head. 

The realization I haven’t thought like this for some time was sobering. 

To feel free to play? Wow. That’s a biting reality. 

I’ve been doubling down for so long, the feeling of “stealing” time for fun things has been the norm. 

Not today. 

Today has space.  

It’s refreshing and exhilarating, yet sad to admit I’m so out of practice.  

The first step is always awareness.  

Cheers to play time!
