Day 16: A Recovery Day

So, no. I did not just disappear from the face of the Earth. I knew that blogging for 31 days straight would be a major challenge for me. I think we can basically chalk this up to a big fail, but that's alright. We are just going to turn our heads and pretend like this long lapse in posting never happened and continue on...

This past weekend was Ethan's 2nd birthday party. I'll post more on it later, but for now a sneak peek. A bribe to forgive me for the failure of my 31 days that we will never speak of again...

Today, I am forcing myself to take a recovery day. Or at least a recovery half day. My husband and I have been going, going, going for what feels like forever now and today...I just want to slow down, do a little catch up and then get back into the swing of things.

I think everyone needs a little forced time out every now and then. It seems life just gets faster and faster year after year and I continually feel more and more guilty for doing things for myself. 

One of the sucky sides of being an adult I guess? 

Today I just want to sit back and reflect on all that has been accomplished before I move onto the next big task list. I hate to admit this, but there are times I get caught up in seeking others approval to make me feel that happiness that comes with accomplishment, but I've finally figured out that the person in control of this happiness is really myself. 

It's okay to pat myself on the back every now and then. 

It's okay to be happy and content with the work I've done. 

It's okay to reward myself with a little break.

So please excuse me as I enjoy my pajama day (er, half day) and do my happy dance for getting one big accomplishment checked off my list before I go full force into my next project. 

Operation big boy room, here I come!

After I finish my second cup of coffee of course.
