I had an excellent week in review, even though the blogs have been sparse. I turned 29 (again), ate a bunch of birthday cake (ok–WAY too much cake), and had the chance to change my personal venue not once, but twice on the weekends and visit some old friends that I haven’t seen since I began law school. I also had the pleasure of 11 days off from law school–the most time off I’ve had since Christmas break. (We only had 6 days off between spring semester and summer school.) If ever there was a week to reboot, this was it.
While at first it appears I’m not grateful for the law school experience, that certainly isn’t my sentiment, nor my point here. My point is simply this: that every once in awhile, it is simply nice to take a break. We all don’t always appreciate it when we get the opportunity, but I certainly did this past week.
If you have a holiday, vacation, time off, or time of transition coming up in the near future, savor it. Love it, because it will be fast, fleeting, but give you something not everyone has the pleasure of doing in this tough time, a chance to push the pause button. Someone said, “Happiness is living each day as if it was the last day of your vacation.”
Although my vacation technically ended today, it will begin to end tomorrow.
