First day of holidays

There’s something magical about the first day of holidays!

Perhaps it is the expectation of all that time ahead without the 9-5 routine – days ready to be filled with mornings at the beach, delicious meals shared with friends, afternoon movies, or just a blissful sleep-in without fear of waking to the annoying buzz of the alarm clock.

Perhaps it is that sense of relief at not working – not having to be switched on, tuned up and raring to go each day, and not having to always be reliable, amiable, flexible, responsible, adaptable, practicable, comprehensible, trainable, likable, accountable, or knowledgeable… (Whew, that’s a whole lot of “able” – no wonder I’m exhausted!)

Perhaps it involves the freedom of noticing the passage of time – rather than reaching the end of the day and wondering how you got there, actually having the chance to appreciate each and every wonderful moment.

Whatever the reason, it’s holiday time and I’m happy!

A beautiful emotion
Big smile on my face
