This week has been a doozy! There’s literally just a ton going on. It’s the job though, and it has to get done. Just know that I’m freaking tired.
On the bright side it’s freaking Friday!! I have the weekend ahead of me, and I just have a short time until I am in Texas. Trust me when I say “I need this.”
Yeah it’s no tropical island or so far away escape, but it’s. Trip to see the people I care about. Don’t get me wrong, there are plans for big trips in the future, but I feel like those aren’t as relaxing as a trip home.
When you go on vacation to somewhere new there’s exploring and trying all sorts of new things. In my mind that isn’t relaxing. Yeah you get your relaxing moments, but it’s nothing in comparison to going home and kicking off your shoes. You don’t have to worry about a hotel bill, or food, or whatever else. That’s relaxing to me. So yeah, I need this. I need this trip home to relax and put myself back together.
When I do go home I always get those messages like, “when are you coming to see me?” First of all, I live halfway around the world, and I just flew all the way home. Why don’t you come see me? I feel as though if I put in the effort to get back to the other side of the planet, you can put in a little effort for a couple of miles. So, lately whenever I go home, I don’t go visit anyone that doesn’t put in at least half the effort.
Anyway, if no one reaches out, this trip will probably be spent in the gym, celebrating my birthday, enjoying thanksgiving, and spending time with those that mean the most. So, reach out if you want to reach out, and don’t if you don’t. I’ll be fine either way.
Have a good one!
