Sometimes you just need a girls weekend. A time where YOU are numero uno on the agenda. A time to catch up, unwind, relax, and remove yourself from the computer! It's healthy, and we (or at least myself and my friends) do not do it enough, especially lately... What I notice this morning as I sit down to write, is that I feel wonderfuly relaxed, well-rested and ready to tackle the week head-on. I'm not behind. I'm not anxious. I'm not worrying about something that's preventing me from being 100% focused on my work.
I'm right here; ready to go, where I need to be. Yes, we need those girl's weekends, or at least, a weekend a month dedicated just to us, our well being and a healthy lifestyle.
We headed South, to visit a friend who's hubby and boys were out of town for the weekend. We checked out the new, impressive, eco-friendly Malibu Lumber Yard where live music played amongst cheerful people playing ping pong, shopping, dancing, soaking in the warm rays on the expansive deck. We perused the shops with some of the most gorgeous displays we had to stop and soak it in to appreciate it- almost like artwork. We ate a delicious lunch on a deck overlooking the Pacific. We had a spa night and tested some new custom Grapeseed Co. vinotherapy products while sampling wines. We read magazines and sipped lattes in the back yard in the Sun. morning sunshine. We talked, laughed and only pulled out the blackberry to snap a photo. We set a date for a road trip to San Francisco in June.
I'm a firm believer that good things happen when you are in a good mindset and place. Make a comitment to yourself to ensure that happens, create your own healthy lifestyle and environment and have fabulous Monday mornings!
