I’m home alone.
Under 3 layers of blankets.
I have one laptop on my lap doing stuff online.
To my left is another laptop playing mindless mind taffy….(millionaire matchmaker right now….I know, I know…but I love it!)
There’s a stack of books to my right on the nightstand, along with a bottle of water, my journal and pens.
My blackberry is resting on my chest.
If I could find a way to have papa johns deliver to my bedroom window today, I would.
I’m not leaving this bed today except for bathroom runs and answering the door to the delivery kid(s).
This day couldn’t be better.
I’m too happy right now.
It literally took me 3 hours and 15 minutes to be okay with my choice of how to spend the day.
I have laundry to do
I haven’t switched out my summer/winter clothes
The entire apartment could use a good cleaning
I have plenty of food to cook instead of ordering out
I haven’t worked out since Wednesday
……..I could go on.
I was talking myself in and out of having a lazy day. No, I was guilting myself. I was using the list above as ammo to convince myself that being lazy is not okay. I’m sure many women do this to themselves. Feeling the need to do, do, do….instead of taking a little time to chill, be, and exhale is a common theme.
My self talk was so negative, and that’s what flipped the script for me. If a friend was telling me it was not okay for me to BS in bed all day I’d tell her to shove it, and do it anyway….so why am I letting myself get away with it!?
I couldn’t believe I was beating myself up for wanting one freakin day in bed. It’s not every day that I have the house to myself!
I’m almost embarrassed that I wasn’t just immediately okay with deciding to be lazy for a day….but now that I’m in my compound (read: bed) I’m 100% content and ready for the naps and quiet time ahead of me.
Take a lazy day ladies, it’s OK!!!
