snapshot: lunching for relaxation
Yesterday, my sister and I went out for lunch.
It has been months since we did this, because I was busy, she was busy, I was busy again. Mind you, we live in the same house, but going out is different. In fact, I'm still busy, and wasn't sure that I wanted to go. When I get overwhelmed, it's easy for me to get depressed, though, so I went. And I took some of the stitching that NEEDS to be done with me.
We did a little shopping first, and as I walked through a few stores, all I could think about was the work waiting for me at home. And then it started to melt away. By taking time away from my work, time to relax and chat with my sister...my friend, I felt more at peace. We ate lunch, and I never even pulled that stitching out of my bag.
I need to do this more often.
