Weekends Were Made For Michelob

Well, now I’m telling my age which I don’t mind. I’m blessed to be 47 years old and am grateful for that and so much more. That’s an old commercial I remember growing up. I just thought of it when I was sitting here, sipping my glass of Strawberry Moscato. I thought, “Sharon, what are your weekends made for?” And my response is “REST!” I know some critics will argue there is so much more to do besides rest. And I concur; however, my Saturdays are spent recuperating from the rest of my exhausting work week. I really do relax and be still. Now tomorrow I’ll get some things done and prepare for a new work week. I know I’m wasting precious time that could be spent on writing more of my book. I’m in the process of writing or getting my merchandise together or photographing my goods and uploading them on the website. BUT, that’s now what I am doing today. Today I’m giving myself time to heal from the mental anguish I experienced during the week. Let me tell you, it’s not at all easy being an EMPATH. Feeling every little thing, reading people, recognizing spirits, and BS. It really is an emotional rollercoaster ride that I have to find ways of stepping away from on occasion. I’m home alone this weekend with me, and my rest, and I’m okay with that. No guilt, no worries, no strain, just rest. I suggest you find ways to rest, and by that, I mean whatever that looks like for you. I barely sleep during the week, so Saturdays, I lye around and sleep a whole lot. So, (raising my glass), here’s to me, and you and finding our quiet space and our place of peace through the weekend. Oh, and it was National Give A Nurse A Bottle Of Wine this week, but of course, no one gave me one, so I gave it to myself. Have a great one…

Until Next Time,

I am an RN working on my DNP, preparing to launch several aspects of my new business and writing and getting ready to publish my first book. I love to write so blogging seemed like a great way to naturally express myself and publish my journey as a nurse.
