On the day that I could leave the office (way) earlier than usual, I was greeted by this gorgeous sight, a sunset like never before. It got me thinking on how much I’ve missed this time of the day where I can slow things down and appreciate what I have around me in comparison to my daily routine of leaving the office only when dark falls; usually later than expected.
I recently met a friend who reminded me that work’s never ending (which is 101% true!) but more importantly, family is the one who would stick by you instead. Nope, I’m not saying to shrink in responsibilities at work but I guess knowing when to exactly stop and take a step back. He challenged me to start with leaving the office on the dot three times in week and gradually increasing it.
This is definitely harder said than done, that’s because I actually love what I’m doing at work but the energy that is required seems a little on the powerless side and that’s when I know it’s time out season and would need to recharge on that.
Start slow …
